They are very flexible, quite short but perfect for pretty much any amp thickness, so they adapt themselves pretty good on that count. smily_headphones1.gif

Yup I also took Soren's blueprint when I found the same Neutrik plugs locally. It is quite simple and easier to make compared to the IC I made from a re-purposed straight plugs.

It's not as flexible and can only be used for the same pair but it's the lowest profile, shortest you can make. (2cm distance between the 2 points of the connectors.)

I can see you followed the master step, looks amazing.

I did one too but decided that because of my frequent connect/disconnect it won't stand the abuse hence I use the above design. In any events, Soren definitively showed the way.

I am also doing the frequent connect/disconnect because the C5D's DAC won't work if something is plugged in to the line in. So far it's holding out fine. The joint in the middle seems solid due to the tight shrink wrap and doesn't flex or twist much unless you apply substantial amount of force.

Done a couple like that. What wire are you using? I got some UP-OCC 7N silver wire on eBay, mundorf solder. Need to get my dremel out to make an all in one

My one like that failed as I'd soldered the plugs three times messing about with different configurations. Will get some more plugs soon

It's rarely a one shot deal, there are tricks in soldering contacts right the first time but even if you do, the wire configuration might require you to do it one more time. I soldered countless plugs before so with experience you start to know what works best. As far as using the right length. It's an approximation. When you twist the wires you gotta keep longer wires else you might come short.

The fun of ic making and their frustrations. bigsmile_face.gif

Looking good, headwacker. Some nice ICs in this thread.

You tend to forget a thing or two and you will have to unsolder and solder again. Always use solder with silver content so it melts and solidifies quickly. The regular solders (led/tin alloy) is somewhat difficult to work with on small pins and contacts of audio-related plugs like the mini XLR connectors. It really tested my patience when I was making a new cable for my T1.

Very nice work, both of you! I'm not sure if I should feel honored about having something short and stubby named after me, but I'll take it! :D

 

DHL tracking says my PB2 is out for delivery, so  I'm constantly looking out the window, scouting for The Little Yellow Truck of Happiness. I feel like a kid looking for Santa!

I hope that didn't describe your physical appearance biggrin.gif

It's an honor for us to use your design. wink.gif

I understand your kid feeling about getting new toys.

Can't wait to see your stack and hear the impression when you're done listening to it.

Plus we may pick a thing or two about the new cabling you are going to need.

Looks nice....however it seems to be maxed out at 32Gb. Personally I use this, as do a few others on here:

One device with interchangeable Micro SD slot.....I use mine with a 64Gb card + 64Gb in the DX50

this product http://list.qoo10.sg/item/NEW-HOT-SMART-USB-MS200-8G-16G/411326979 can become the another 64gb micro sd expansion :)
