A quick glance at their website shows the different cables and their names. Just a click away.

The pictures of of DHC Peptide litz. Your cable, if it is silver-plated copper, is Peptide "hybrid" litz. Both are from DHC

Yes.

Wait the wire is for sale on bulk forms? I thought only the non litz nucleotide was for sale.

I do not know how others got their hands on it but I have only been able to get it from pre made cables in the bst forums.

Check this out:

 

 

That's your regular Neutrik with an ATH casing.  Just the right fit.  The ATH casing was salvaged from a plug with broken contacts.  It is threaded, apparently you need quite a bit of force to unscrew the casing on the stock plug.  It goes on about as easy as the original Neutrik casing.  An Amphenol plug is slightly too small, but I don't have a spare to make sure.  At least the Amphenol is just small enough to fit properly in the ATH 1/4" adapter.

 

 

Edit: the Neutrik barely fits the adapter as well.

I just wanted to thank you guys for inspiring me with this thread to make up some DIY cables for my LCD-2’s. The information you’ve provided enabled me to make these.

I build one 3.5mrt balanced 4pin XLR out and one 1.3mtr to mini jack. Check the pictures,

All connectors are Neutrik and the cable used was 19AWG Teflon Silver Plated OFC. Pretty thick but flexibity is still better than expected, but fiddly with mini XLR’s. All wires are twisted and braided where needed.

Sound wise, even though I’ve by no means used the best cable available, I’ve noticed a big improvement over the stock cable, everything had more punch and more detail. This has shown me that the LCD-2’s are really held back by their stock cables. It was well worth the effect.

Looking nice. Great job.

You'll want to take that question here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/676402/diy-cable-questions-and-comments-thread

 

Then when you've finished your cable, post the picture in this gallery.

My first ever braided cable.

I used silver class speaker cable, it sure was a drag fitting that in the 3.5mm angled neutrik connector!

So I was bored one day, and decided to try out DIY interconnects. This was something I made using cheap copper cables from my local hardware store, along with two Neutrik straight jacks, and some heatshrink abuse.
