Any particular reason you're wanting that exact cable?

For the LOD cable, theoretically is there any audio benefit by having two ground wires instead of a single one?

 

Now if I use two ground wires, does it matter if I leave pins 1 & 2 separate or join them together?

 

Gee, one time my LOD ground wire broke off and it sounded like sh** and I thought something wrong with my iem's or amp.

I have found that using double ground wires (or one larger gauge) does improve the sound ever so slightly.

Do you leave ground pins 1 and 2 separate or soldered together?

I twist the two and solder them together - but too each their own.

Yeah it seems my ears agree. I been listening to this LOD today with a pair of ground lines, and to my ears it has a fuller sounding with smoother treble.

Shoot me now...
The 2" piece or wire actually changed the sound...
Must have made more room for the sound to get through, should have put 3 or 4 grounds in place... Would have given it a THX sound stage... XD

Have you tried one LOD yourself with two ground wires?

Since I only use the Colorfly C3 these days as it is head and tails sonically over the iDevices...

 

This 6 wire mini connects the C3 to my Amp.

And I use this one here when I want to leave it to chance...

Is that a LOD? I was talking about LOD.

On the iDevice the standard 30 pin LOD connects to a line out Left + and Right + with a common Ground on the circuit board for both channels. This, in turn, goes to a 3.5mm TRS jack that has a Left +, a Right + and a common ground for both channels...

 

The mini to mini that i posted is exactly the same configuration except one end has another TRS jack instead of an Apple 30 Pin Connector... You still only use 2 signal lines and a ground any way you look at it.

 

Edit:

Also pins 1 & 2 are connected together on the iDevice board...

To build a data cable with it.  I've got two Neutrik 5-pin DIN plugs to go with it.  markertek sells assembled versions, but where's the fun in that?  :tongue_smile: 

markertek doesn't sell bulk D403, though, not even in gigantic reels.
