DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread - Page 79

post #1171 of 6133

This is the Guide KingWa [the maker of the Audio GD amp I have] posted on his web site on terminating a 4pin XLR 

 

I would assume it coresponds to the pint out on the amp,

that said... this is very strange...

Yep, so forward that to the cable maker and make sure he has wired them up correctly.

Or check yourself by opening the XLR housing and checking the wires see if they match the guide.

I'm not ready to open the housing my self... I'll send it back to him along with KingWa's guide for the third time... I might see if he can install some Alpha Pads on my D2k as well [so he can finally make some money off this dmn thing, it's been mostly at cost up till now] 

 

but I forwarded that link

Can anyone link me to a 3.5mm connector that comes with a screw 1/4th adapter? I used to have one bookmarked but I guess I dont anymore.

That's exactly what I need, but if I order from Luna it will take over 3 weeks to get it in the mail. Thanks though.

 

Anything US based?

Get a refund. I've been following your journey for quite a while and it is unacceptable that he got the cabling wrong twice...

It is really a simple check that you can do yourself, dont be afraid. Buy yourself a $5 multimeter, open the housing up and check the pinout. It will honestly take you less time and you will spend less money than sending them off for a third time.

If you're really that uncomfortable with it, I'm sure there are plenty of DIYers here willing to help out including myself.

Hope your D2Ks get the treatment they deserve!

FOR AUSTRALIANS: Do we have any pro cablers in Australia? I may have a recabling job for you, if you're out there!

 

Found Qusp!

One more question guys...For headphones with one-sided entry (AKG's), is it worth getting a custom cable for them? All I think about is that one side will sound different (the one with the custom cable going in) to the other.

I've tried but with no luck.
