Balanced cable for my HD650.

 

Pretty run-of-the-mill as things go around here. Mogami microphone cable, techflex sleeving, viablue minisplit, cardas connectors, neutrik XLR 4-pin, adhesive heat shrink.

 

Nothing too special, but I was quite happy with the level of finish I managed to get on it. Nice and tidy and rock solid everywhere!

 

Using it now with my HD650, Anedio D1 and Balanced DNA Sonett. Anyone who thinks the HD650 can't be world class is deluded. :tongue:

 

Perhaps not as resolving as HD800 or LCD-2/3/X but very enjoyable! :)

Looks nice to me!

Very clean. Did you use pre-cut heat shrink? If not, what did you use to cut it?

Thanks!

 

I like mini wire cutters like this one:

 

 

I've got one that's just big enough. It usually takes me 1-3 tries before I'm happy with each piece. But that's alright, I've got a 25m roll of adhesive heatshrink. :D 

 

Only cost me $20 or something like that.

I've had this cable posted here before, I just changed the dual 3-pin xlrs out for SMC connectors for use with my HE-400 and freshly modded T50RP.

Very nice!

 

How did you get the cable wound so nicely? Do you twist it around before fixing it in place with adhesive heat shrink? :smile:

No, this is the method I use. ostewart made a little tutorial for this very reason, so people can see how to do it because it's hard to explain for some reason.

Anyone used Kumihimo disk to achieve round 6 or 8 braiding ?

I can easily do 8 wire kumihimo pattern but 4 and 6 round are difficult.

Thanks for the tutorial. wink.gif
I can do 4 easily, I can make exact wire like Alo or double helix, just that I am having bit of hard time beginning from 16 strands then split into two (8 strands) for left and right.

I really wonder how after market company do this ....... puzzled....

I think they do it the other way around.

 

First take 8 strands and do up half the cable. Now do another with 8 strands and do half the cable.

 

Now join them together and make the 16 strand pattern from where they join.

 

That should be easiest.

Lol, 16! That's out of my league.

Here's a couple of links that may help.

Ok let me try that. For 4 to 2 split, I start from 4 strands then do 2 cross for both left and right.

I am going to build a machine to do 4,6 and 8 round wires. I guess I have no life or too much time smily_headphones1.gif
