Interconnect DIY question: which side to ground?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

When building interconnects a common construction technique is to attach both the shield and neutral leg on one side while leaving the shield unconnected at the other end.  From what I understand, you are supposed to do this on the "source" side of the cable but I have always been a little unsure as to what constitutes the source side.  If you have an interconnect going from a preamp to amp, would the source side be the preamp?

Correct.

Your source is wherever the signal is coming from.

Check out the Van Den Hul Audio and Video Cable Connector Wiring Diagram PDF.

It has a lot of useful information and diagrams about the proper way to wire your interconnects.
