Base on how big the Viablue split is, your cable is "HUGE" even for a very heavy LCD-X.

 

How much is your system gonna weight with your cable?

 

Just couriers

It isn't my LCD-XC, it's another headfiers. The cable is actually really light, it's just plump.

Those Viablue splits are hollow inside, they don't weight much at all.

What I mean is, your cable is very very thick............

I ended up using 26awg wire from BTG Audio (signals were silver plated copper, and grounds were copper) and sheathed it in 550 paracord, yes 550. I ran one strand of yarn with each wire to make the paracord nice and plump but still flexible. It feels very nice. This was also my first time using a pre-made y-split (Viablue). That was pretty nice.

 

 

Side note, it isn't fun at all trying to get 4 strands of 550 paracord in an RSA connector. Needless to say, it was modified.

 

Looks great, where did you get the  pre-made y-split cable, I was not able to find them on DIY page of their website http://btg-audio.com/webstore.htm#ecwid:category=2620180&mode=category&offset=0&sort=normal

Thanks to both of you, I am looking to build an cable for HE-6 and these links will help for sure.

I have a cable with that ViaBlue splitter, its very lightweight aluminum but not exactly "small" in size.

 

Recently I saw a newer y-splitter offered by Double Helix Cables, called Capsid. I ordered two of them a couple of days ago, even smaller and lighter weight than the ViaBlue with arguably better looks depending on the overall desired aesthetic.

 

The ViaBlue is more bland black and discreet looking, albeit slightly larger, the Capsid has a certain bling effect with both carbon fiber and somewhat shiny polished looking aluminum, which may or may not float your boat.

 

Their site seems to be down for maintenance right now or I'd provide a link to it.

Ya I have a couple of the viablue ones and they are huge.  For the normal 4 strand cable it is way too big and obtrusive.  Unless you are going with 8 or more strands that are individually sleeved I wouldn't get it.

I picked up one of the DHC splitters. I was one of the first 20 that got the blasted finish. It's larger than I imagined but not overly so. Very lightweight. I like the finish. Wish I had ordered an extra or two with the limited finish.

This isn't a cable, but it's an adapter I made for the last cable picture I posted.
