Nice elegant cable. Just out of curiosity, you mentioned using silver but is it the spc or pure?

Ether way, looks fantastic.

The wire that I used isn't being sold right now for some reason but all their stuff is very nice.  I would go with the 26awg though.  28 is really thin.

OCC copper wire, unbleached cotton outer jacket, Neotech Rhodium/OCC XLR's, Furutech HD800 connectors.

That makes for a very expensive cable! was it worth it?

Well, not really, it's just a cable after all, but it does feed/satisfy my audiophile psychosis lol.

What a perfect description of this audio delusion we all live in, lol.

The cotton is a nice tough. I would probably opt for Neutrik XLRs and silicone wire, though they would be a pain to get the cotton over.

Any good retailers to look at for speaker wires? I'm specifically looking for mogami or canare.

Canare 4S11 and Mogami W3103

Thanks!

Markertek.com has both of those. Though only bulk for the W3103.

A couple of RCA cables I build for a fellow head-fi member.

Are those the neutrik locking plugs? I've always been curious about those.

My first headphone recable, including internals. Was a slight pain to get the thicker wire through the bands and joints.

 

 

 

Techflex I ordered was smaller than i expected so its expanded a lot and wire is a bit too thick. But it all works and that's the important thing, definitely better than the original cable that was old and stiff, I use these as my portable setup and it was getting annoying.

 

Was fun and a learning experience, will definitely continue making my own cables and maybe redo these when i get thinner wire.
