Thanks man. Yeah, i'm not into the flashy type of cables. As i tend to keep them for a while, i rather go with simple. The chance that i still like them in a year is pretty good ^^

It a RCA to RCA connector type with the grounding wires on both ends..

PS - I don't own a turn-tables so no experience with this... just helping a friend

my questions

> anyone has a recommendation for the type or brand of cables to DIY..
> also the additional grounding wires, are they connected to the shielding of the cables..
      or just a separated grounding wire and  shrinkwrap along the cables.
      if you have a schematic, pls PM to me

thanks in advance

not looking for exotic cables but a one which is enjoyable to listen to with huge soundstage and smooth high and good taut bass.

Very nice!

Ostewart, I use that jack on all the cables for my DJ headphones. They hold up nice and they are very small and compact. Looks good!

I have DHC Pure Copper Litz that looks exactly like this cable.  My DHC Peptide Litz wire is silver plated copper.  Where did you purchase your Peptide Litz?

I have both, didn't know the copper was referred to as "Peptide", when talking with Peter, he called his SPC Litz "Peptide", guess you cleared up the confusion!

The "Peptide" name is used for all of DHC's litz cables as far as I'm aware.

Peptide - Copper Litz

Peptide "Hybrid" - Silver Plated Copper Litz

Peptide "Fusion" - 50/50 Silver and Copper Litz

Silver Peptide - Silver Litz
