Recabled German Maestro GMP 400 with Toxic Cables flexible copper cable, Neutrik 6.3mm Jack, Viablue case as y-split and Nylon sheathing. Used the original Strain reliefs on the housing.

Some connectors arrived today from good ole lunashops, 2 of each...

 

Then I terminated some cables with the two on the left...

 

The 6 braid IC had the Neutrik right angle on it for a while, but I switched it back to the other cable for a LOD to use my X3 in the car.

 

The Yarbo Audiophile GY-3.5GB is a nice, decent, easy to work with quality connector.

The Ranko Acoustics REP-100 is just this side of junk, I don't know if these are lunashop ripoffs or the real product but the tolerance on that screw is very sloppy so you might want to be careful if you intend to use them, or better yet don't even bother with the RK ones at all.

 

The first connectors screw stripped and I DID NOT over torque it, could have been a bad connector but the second one didn't feel much better.  YMMV :D

Oh, boo. The RK ones looked interesting since it's slim. nm then. biggrin.gif

I can vouch for the bad qualit of the RK jacks. I had one on an upgrade cable I had bought, and the thing is loose, and not exactly repairable.

Lunashops would be so much more useful if they would at least be honest about which parts are fakes and which (if any) are genuine.

I've considered trying some ViaBlue connectors but was never sure about the ones at lunashops...

Viablue are delicious but I'd never order them from Lunashops. I was always a bit sceptical but after getting some stupendously obvious fake stuff from them, I've just stopped using them.

My first try.

 

Two RCA's cables using Neutrik plugs, Canare L46E wire and some black paracord.

 

post #13197 of 13448

I got my Alpha Pads for my D2K in the mail yesterday, so I whipped up another portable cable for them :D

Simple 3.5' Mogami totally stripped of insulation and that paper crap, I sleeved the bottom half in black paracord and clear heat shrinked (heat shrunk?) after the Y split, which is made from a Pailiccs barrel, and then the cable is terminated to dual 3-pin Rean Mini XLRs and a 3.5mm Pailiccs connector on the other end.

Gotta love Pailiccs jacks

post #13199 of 13448

Yeah I really do. They're a little more pricey than the Neutrik/Reans but they look as good or better than those that are 3 or 4x more expensive. I really think the Viablue and the like are more appealing because everyone knows they're more expensive. They're like the Apple of connectors. They do the same thing, but with a bigger price tag.

post #13200 of 13448

I like viablue for looks, but they are awkward to work with as the solder tabs are tiny.
