My turn. Sorry for the terrible picture, but the only digital camera I have is my cellphone one.



The tiny one in the middle is star quad with angle plugs for my portable setup. The longer white ones are star quad with canare plugs for unbalanced connection. On the star quad cables the shield is grounded at one end only, with small cap at the other, so signal doesn't go through it.
The long black cables are completely DIY except the silver Neutrik XLRs of course. It's the Venhaus design: teflon tube, fine silver wire, teflon tape, techflex.

That is some really nice looking techflex you've all got. Where does it come from?

My Digital Interconnect

I've been a lurker for a week now, and got around to registering today. This cable links my DVD player to my processor in my home theater.

It's the first one I've made that I actually like The sound is great - credit to Jon Risch' marvellous webpages for the recipe.





Cable is 1695A from Belden, flex and shrink from cableorganizer, bullets from a mate. Made with 63/37 "44" Kester solder. Cost me less than 12US to build this, most of which was the cost of the bullets.
Regards to all,
Paul.

Those cables are gorgeous. What kind of sleeving is it?

Look for 'techflex' braided sleeving on Google

I get mine, a derivitive of techflex, from cableorganizer.com, other suppliers are Parts Express, RS Components, etc. My cable has two layers of flex for added durability and it looks better, too!

Regards
Paul.

I actually found your thread after my first attempt, it's very well made. I can totally relate to soldering the plug onto the wires and forgeting to put the back piece on. It totally sucks!!!
