My Bad... I thought he posted the cable as his own and not the retermination.

Apologies! :wink_face:

So giving a dude props on his DIY work in a DIY thread is off topic?. All I was doing was giving a thumbs up to Zashoomin for the great work he did on that cable, which he referenced in an earlier post. Seems appropriate to me. Commercial cable or not, there was still DIY work performed on it. I never claimed to have performed any of the work and If you noticed I mainly posted pictures of the connectors themselves, which were what he worked on and somehow was able to make fit.

I'm proud of the job he did, and it appears others are also impressed. Considering this I felt (and still feel) it was appropriate to post.

My tri-rated cable for the electrostatic phones and amp I'm developing...

 

 

Good for 600/1000V depending on which standard you refer to. Bias voltage adjustable to ~680V. Signal voltage +/- 250v differential. I hope the cable works out. Still looking at connectors. I've got to figure out some kind of entry into these cups.

I wanted to do something nicer for the y-split, but I couldn't find anything online that would actually look good and fit the cable.  I might revisit it again, since I can never leave well enough alone.  Definitely done for a while for the HD800, though.  The connectors are too damn expensive to make multiple cables like I have in the past.

They are very very heavy though, and big.

 

Would have gone will with the color of the XLR and the headphones, black/silver.

Holy cow that's expensive. 

 

My alternative for close to the same look would be:

and some of this to cover the center of it.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/3M-1080-Gloss-Black-Carbon-Fiber-Vinyl-Vehicle-Wrap-Film-Sheet-12-x-12-CF12-/110948000132?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item19d5042184&vxp=mtr

 

That 12x12 sheet would last a LONG time.

You could even spray some clear coat over the top to get a glossy finish. Maybe I'll do this on whatever cable I use my acrolink carbon fiber 3.5mm connector on, just to see how it looks next to it.

Thanks Frank.  I saw those before but couldn't pull the trigger.  My main issue is that even prior to braiding the 4 sleeved wires off of the y split are just over 7mm, closer to 8. If I but some think heatshrink around the bundles to protect from fraying, then I'm looking at almost 9mm.  Haven't found a Y split that can accommodate the bundles and not give me a neck strain.  I could try drilling out the tops of something like the ones you posted, but it would be a shame to do that to something so nice looking.

 

@Casper  I would probably have to use an XLR body :)  I have samples of 3M Dinoc that I have tried.  Cool stuff, but even my best attempts don't look as nice as something like the barrels that Frank posted.

 

Cheers for the suggestions.  Might add a Y split option post to the DIY cable questions/suggestions thread.

I'm not essentially opposed to comments being applied based on the work of other members.  A few kudos never hurts.  Where things start to turn south, though, is when others start to ask detailed questions.  In that case, that is essentially the reason for the cable thread where questions, links to suppliers, etc. can all be discussed in great detail.

 

If a newer member happens to ask some supply questions or questions getting into the detail or materials for a cable, it's OK to point them to the other thread for discussion instead of trying to answer their question here in the gallery  Discussion thread for Cables -->: http://www.head-fi.org/t/676402/diy-cable-questions-and-comments-thread 

 

Meanwhile, keep the cable pictures coming.  After all, we usually get inspired from seeing the unique talents of others as they post pictures of their fine work.
