I nearly bought the Tunami Terzo RCA pre-made pair but I might as well go silver!

and yes I'm a sucker for Oyaide, right next to it is an Across 750 which is premade by Oyaide which I have been using for the past year or so :)

Nothing wrong with loving Oyaide.  I'd have more of it if I could afford it.  Or rather, it is more fun to make 4-5 cables with the same amount of money.

Some water-clear PVC heatshrink would be ideal in this instance.  Can keep most of the aesthetic.

I first got them from Markertek.

http://www.markertek.com/Connectors-Adapters/Audio-Adapters/3-5mm-Adapters/Switchcraft-Corporation/35HDRANAU.xhtml

 

The plugs are great, very high quality, very good stuff.

 

Also bought another set from usbargainsound, but haven't received the stuff yet.

Thomann is a good source, if you're in Europe.

That would be a right-angled mini jack. There are many available from Neutrik or Switchcraft, although I don't know of a connector exactly like the one in the picture. Those are larger and have an aluminium barrel.

Are you specifically looking for the plug with four contact elements?

If so, search for 3.5mm TRRS phone plugs, or iphone-style headphone plugs. Or variations and recombinations on those terms.

i have. and both 3.5mm and 6.3mm amphenol plugs have good internals as well, as good as neutrik plugs i say. although there is this one instance that the tip of my 3.5mm amphenol plug got stucked inside a headphone jack LOL

 

it only happened once though, and ive been using the brand for about 2 years now.
