Wild. I'd love to see the insides of the dock connector. That takes more than soldering wire ends to pins, doesn't it?

The connections are no different than a normal 30-pin to USB cable.  Just has to be planned and executed much more precisely due to the low profiled connector.  But I just so happened to take pics while building :)

Hah. So a USB connection for the dock is basically just a straight wire, no internal circuit necessary? That makes it even easier than a simple audio line-out. Good to know!

I'd love to get your impressions of the TP60 when you get it.  Have you had any other t-amps in the past?

Will do.

No experience at all but I have it on good authority that the TP60 coupled with the HE-6 is a bit of an eye opener. It's cheap and although it requires a mod to reduce the output it's a bit of fun, I'm quite looking forward to it as I think the HE-6 has massive potential. This may lead to the more expensive purchase of the Little Dot VI +......

Nice, I'm looking at it mostly for my bedroom speaker setup, but I do happen to have a speaker tap breakout cable for my fostex evil_smiley.gif

My new interconnect: Canare L-4E6S + Canare F-12  jacks.  Two blue conductors for left, two white conducors for right channel ( 2 x 21 AWG + 2 x 21 AWG ), metal shield as ground. Faster bass, better soundstage. Great cable and plugs for affordable price! With the little help from Mr. Yasuhiro Tsukuda smile.gif

 BTW on the 2nd pic there is my Meelec CC51,  recabled with more durable M11+ cables.

My first DIY recable from scratch using Toxic Cables 26awg SPC, braiding it takes the longest, and as it was my first braid its not perfectly consistent but the cable is super soft and easy to work with, but im happy with the end result, sounds good. Also the Y-split is a case from some old Pailiccs jacks that broke, filled with hot glue, strain relief in the housing is hot glue too.

Pailiccs are my favourite jacks to work with, they look nice and are good quality, a little flux and it sticks straight away.

Weekends are a nice break with time to actually do stuff.

I used some old CAT3 cable I found in our basement, bitspower sleeving, and some Rean 3.5mm plugs (much better than those $.99 on ebay) for the cable. Found some 3.5mm jacks at radioshack, although they're kinda crappy and a tad loose with some other plugs (but not the rean ones)

Not bad for around $20.

Got out my spare Mundorf and Black Dragon to make some adaptors. The mini-XLR one is for a cable system -- my headphones are terminated in mini-4pin XLRs so I can plug in one of a variety of adaptors.

Nice work Amos.

 

For those wishing to make their own HD800 cables, i now have 2 different types of my own custom made HD800 connectors available, one accepts same sized wire as all other HD800 connectors, while the other accepts cables up to 5mm thick, and will easily accept 2 x 18AWG wires, with no modifications.

 

Mine are the two on the right,

I now also have connectors for most IEM and headphone cables available for purchase in my ebay shop, please check my sig for link.

Cool now with the right music you should be able to magnetize all kinds of nails and screwdrivers etc... 

Maybe play some Bieber to demagnetize... J/K biggrin.gif

 

That is a very unique cable you've built!
