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

hmm how about his SPC cables? Next time I might get my copper from DHC if I knew it was from mogami earlier haha

EIther place is good. I hear DHC is better though, resulting in the higher priced wire.

oh well i guess when i get my next paycheck i'll be getting the copper from DHC, should we maybe update 1st page saying BTG audio copper is W2893? Though I emailed just for confirmation with brian.

 

edit: Brian just gave me confirmation that it is most definitely the W2893 just without the insulation so the wires wont be crooked.

Ya so 18awg cable is minimum I use 16, 14, 12 or even 10 awg.  10 is a bit overkill and stiff though.  Also Wattgate has some very good connectors but they are soo very expensive.  If you want some nice cheap connectors ebay is the way to go.  Also if you don't want to spend a fortune on wire than Navships has some nice wire or you can get some chinese stuff on ebay as well.  If you have some wire laying around though combining 2 wires of the same awg results in about 3 awg lower so 2 20awg will get you about 17.  And then combining 4 20awg will get you about 14 awg.  So one other option is to buy cheaper thinner wire and start to bundle them.

Also, they shouldn't forget the wall outlet either.  I think going with a $100 outlet might be overkill.  However, the orange "hospital grade" outlets can be picked up for around $15.00.  They are way better than the $.59 specials that most builders use for wall outlets.

Hmm so before I order some stuff.... does nickel plating vs gold plating in a 3.5mm mini actually make a large difference? I know the gold is more for corrosive resistance than anything else, but has anyone had issues with their nickel stuff corroding and having a detrimental effect on sound quality?
