Sweet, as you see on my cable above I used one for the y-split, I like it in black for the y-split, goes with the nylon sheathing

Working damn good as a cinch:

 

(My first quad braid btw :o)

Looks great!

My first proper attempt at making a cable, a bit ghetto but I like the result and since the original cable is broken and this works fine it'll do.

 

Done with an old paracord I had lying around, a ferrite bead from an old power supply to cover the Y split (just for looks), 10 years old heat shrink  and a Neutrik 1/4 right angle plug.

 

 

It's a bit rough on the Hifiman plug end, mainly the heat shrink doesn't end straight but I can always fix it later.

Nothing "ghetto" about that cable.

Unless ghetto means sexy.

Ahah, thanks I guess I meant ghetto more for the materials used, maybe frugal would have been a better choice!

I keep wanting to try out those Neutrik jacks, but they're quite pricey... any chance you have a pic of their internals?

They're excellent connectors, I really like having the cable clamp. The only other RCA that I know of that has it is one Rean model but it's much less attractive.

I didn't want the mediabridge cable everyone buy with their X1 so I made a quick one using a Canare star quad and sleeved with basic paracord.

The cable on the x1 is removable.

I did not make this cable myself but had commissioned ostewart to do so. As always he did an excellent job.

 

I 'only' added the black and red heat shrink and installed it.

Toxic cable

Another cable (made for a fellow head-fier CaptZ, for his AKG K501 that he will recable)

 

It is 14ft long, copper cable from Toxic Cables, sheathed in nylon, housing from a neutrik L jack as the y-split, also a jack from Toxic cables.

I have a really noobish question, but I can't seem to find the answer in earlier posts (although, I did not go though all 883 pages).

 

Where do you get/what are the technically called the part that covers the Y split on the cable?
