I'll probably go for a few next time that I order from Mouser.

 

 

No I haven't tried them yet but those look amazing... I hope redco change their stock to these or adds them to their inventory. Thats where I usually get my aphenol's from. 

 

These are them here right? http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Amphenol-Audio/KS3PC-AU/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMv0W4pxf2HiV7tHWrL7MPmY9mIYbO5YSX4%3d

 

Edit: They are pretty new.. They have the datasheet of the old model of aphenol plugs.

I saw one eBay seller using them in the hand-made cables he sells.  I would love to try them out myself.

I am pretty new this forum thanks to everyone that posted pictures its nice to see you can make your own high end cables without spending $100000000 of dollars. It would be cool to see a company to move the input and outputs of a dac and amp combo to the front so you can show case  your DIY interconnects. Some people might not like the idea I think I might do a mod to do this I think It would look great especially with silver Teflon interconnects.

Cable: QED Performance Audio 1 

http://www.dienadel.de/lshop,showdetail,14121011506026,en,1412102260-17288,,q7188,17,17,.htm

 

Termination: Rean NYS3732 and NYS3739

http://www.rean-connectors.com/en/products/phono/phono-plugs/nys373

 

Both white and shield connected to sleeve on source end. 

Would not recommend the Rean NYS373x. Small connector with short arm and no hole makes soldering a bit tricky. Also the construction with plastic chuck does not feel reliable. But on the positive side the connector is slim and housing is non-conducting.

You can try adding tape on top of the plastic chuck so that it bites down harder for a more secure grip.

 

Amphenol RCAs are the way to go, buddy.  :D
