Boutique stuff is all relative, there are people here who buy $300 USB cables and $750 power cords, so $7 a foot for wire is not really that much when you play in the land of Diminishing Returns.

They claim that the earlier you order, the higher your discount will be. Right now it's listed as $6.50 per foot with a regular price of $7.00 per foot.



Looks awfully similar to what Doublehelixcables launched a little bit ago.

Isn't it 6 wires or no? Is that just the picture?

If i;m wrong feel free to correct me.

BTG audio is Mogami wire. Saves you the time of stripping, etc.

Look up type 2 litz for better descriptions, but real litz designs are bundles of bundles in different geometries. Reduces skin effect.

Really? Also, how do they strip the outer insulation? Doesn't that take them forever? Because you have to go inch by inch, atleast i did when I made a cable out of Mogami.

He gets the base wire directly from Mogami. It wasn't part of other cables first.

I know he gets his wires from mogami but I don't think you can find that type of cables inside regular mogami cables like the w2839(i think im wrong on the code but what the hell i cant remember **** like this) as in like he gets it form mogami special order so its not the same as getting a cable directly with mogami brand name on it.

Cool, just shot them an email.

Not the best way to do this but I'm looking at having a HR10A-7P-6P to Female 4-Pin XLR Interconnect   built. I know that iBasso Sells, them yet the shipping is too long, as I need a cable quickly. 

Made a post here in the FS thread as well but :D figured I'd ask the DIY Cable guys directly too!

Looks like the same wire from w2893. Same strand count, dialectric and diameter. He special orders it because Mogami doesnt normally sell just the base wire.

It's a great wire, and he was really smart to fill the niche that he did.
