post #1096 of 6137

Hello guys !

 

you find it necessary to make a custom power cable for Asgard 1?

I thought of using this cable:

was wondering if someone switched the cable and heard a difference :)

You may or may not hear a difference but you will never know until you try.  Some people think it does while others don't.  I can say that is a nice experience to have to make a cable for yourself and also very rewarding.

I have a couple of 4 pin mini xlr's of that line for my audeze's and I have to say they are by far the easiest plug I have worked with.  That includes switchcraft and neutrik plugs as well.  Very solid build quality and very very nice looking.

Yeah that's what I am expecting from this plug - a nice looking and good quality. :)

 

I bought a little bit toxic silver wires a few months ago, so I am going to use this plug and those wires to make a LOD. Then I will be really done with the LOD's. Too many LOD's already. So far my favorite LOD's are the ones made of HGA pure silver with cotton jacketing and also the Mundorf Silver/Gold wires.

On the list of improving your sound quality, Power Cables are at the extreme bottom of that list.

Get the IEM's and forget about Power Cable foolishness unless you have money to burn... biggrin.gif

Wow, thank you for the picture.

Why do I like those so much? I can already tell that I'm going to cave and eventually try them.

Hi, I was just starting to dive into making my own cable, and I have a fairly simple question

 

I am looking at navships (I heard of him from you guys) shop online for wire, and see 22 AWG wire and 24 AWG wire.

 

22 AWG:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/231134914950?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fm.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_armrs%3D1%26_ssn%3Dnavships%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D231134914950%26_rdc%3D1

 

24 AWG:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/25-feet-24-AWG-Black-Shielded-Silver-Teflon-Wire-Coax-/231128224906?pt=US_Audio_Cables_Adapters&hash=item35d050d48a

 

The 24 AWG has shielding though.

 

Will this make a big difference?  Will it not matter?  Which wire is better, or is there an even better wire that I'm not seeing?

 

Thank you guys for your time and knowledge!

What's the cable for? Either one of those wires is going to be quite stiff, the coax being very stiff. Make decent hookup wire maybe interconnect wire.

post #1107 of 6137
Navships is generally is going to be stiff, more so with some offerings. It's made for military use rather than audio.

I still think it can work great depending on what you use it for and mix it with. Some of their opinions are great for ground wires to save money.

As mentioned above, those two have limited use.

@ I luvmusic 2 is the last cable a 3.5mm to 6.3mm extension cable? Or is it 6.3mm to 6.3mm?

Nice work btw!
