post #14176 of 14187

Hello guys, 
I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you here for all your help. Couple days ago i made my first RCA cables. I haven't finished  them yet because i want to sleeve them.(didn't solder them, but they work just fine :P)  I will get some Texflex from e-bay (after Christmas) and i will post asap my pictures. 

Besides that, now i want to make custom cables for anything :P  I will make some for my HD600 and DT990 pros but this is going to take a while. I also think to build the Bottlehead Crack amp. I am so pAMPed for the DIY projects :D


Anyway, i just wanted to say thanks in general. This thread was extremely helpful and inspiring :)

Yep,

The wire was enameled which was kind of a pain, but a good soak in some lacquer thinner and I got it to take solder.

Ohh boy, I wanted to mold HD650 stock cable to have 2.5mm trrs, so that I can use it balanced with AK100 II,

 

I cut the wires, the there are four tiny wires inside and I am not sure how they are insulated apart. Also the 2.5 mm trrs looks so tiny, I have micro solder, even this I am not sure how to do that. 

 

Please suggest.

Yeah that is type 1 paracord, and no it will not fit that wire in it. I just looked online and 2mm is about the same as 12awg, which is way too thick.

This is not directly on topic, so I can make a new thread in the main forum, but does anyone have success using the internals of the Neutrik 4 Pin male XLRs in the body of any of the other (Oyaide Focus 1/Furutech non-Carbon) shells? I don't like the design of the Neutrik connectors but it seems like nobody else makes an attractive 4-Pin.

 

Also, has anyone done a custom splitter to be 3D Printed? I just made one in SketchUp and sent it to Shapeways for testing. Not sure how much DIY has been done in this area, or if everyone is just using the Viablue splitters or is just using heat shrink.

This is the gallery, there's a separate forum for questions and advice on DIY cables, here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/676402/diy-cable-questions-and-comments-thread

How much does custom cables effect your sound?

 

I have used them before, but only tried them on my LCD-2s, didnt seem like a huge difference to me. 

 

Seeing that some cables are worth as much as my LCD-2s, Lol, Is it that worth it though?
