DIY Cable Gallery!! - Page 175

post #2611 of 13945
Greetings MrJingles,
I've thought the same since I've seen this thread. Incredible nice cables and even if you can't hear any difference between these ones and a 5 bucks cable > "there's no need to be perfect, if you look perfect!"

best regards,
bearmann

p.s.: You've a nice nickname.

HD595 cable from soloz Audio.

Just started to make a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable to use with a Sonic Impact T amp which I plan to rehouse in a hammond case.

The only problem here is not many places sell the connectors and the ones that do charge a lot for delivery (around $12 minimum charge). Makes it a waste unless I need 20+ connectors. I find it incredible that airmail form the US to the UK for something similar only costs half that



I've used two twisted pairs of 19 strand 22AWG silver wire.

250ohm adapter for miniplug...
Learned a lot of things making this, but it works fine and seems sturdy so all in all it was a success. :P
2 barrels and lots of hot glue for the resistors.
Turns out 250ohms was a good choice for my usage; I see a lot of people use 120 here.

Grado 325i cable shortening and retermination:






SA5000 re-recable. 30 AWG teflon coated silver-plated copper in a 4-wire round braid terminated to a silver Neutrik 1/4" plug; somewhere around 9 to 10 feet (guess). Main lead of the cable is sheathed in cotton before being sheathed in multifilament techflex. Ultra-flexible, ultra-light, and ultra-nonexistent microphonics. Most physically pleasing recable I've ever experienced. I don't have a reference to compare the sound to, though.

NICE y-split!

Need some advice. My first attempt at a mini to mini cable. Going from iMod in car cradle on top of dash to the input in the radio. I'm looking for a tube, warm sound, 1 1/2 feet in length, black non-tangle chord, right angle on one end, nice clean look.
What exactly and where should I purchase?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks.

Small wire means a small y-split.

If it doesn't have to sound the best, I'd suggest mogami starquad, though not out of personal experience.

Yeah, if you're doing mini-mini, especially those damn tiny Neutrik connectors, go with something skinny. I used Mogami Mini-Quad something or other.

hope headphone recables are ok too here are a few DIY cables and headphone recables I've made:

K1000 - 4pin XLR to 1/4"


K1000 - 4pin XLR to exposed wire for power amps


Analog stereo RCA-RCA


1/4" to 1/8" Adapter cable I've made for the MS-1 to Mini^3

Second side of the cable


A coax cable for digital signals with locking RCA's


Recabled K701's


Recabled K81DJ


My second pair of modded K340s (I've modded about 6 of these )


Another pair of fully modded and recabled K340's


A few cables I've made for a fellow head-fier for his portable system (he's using the K340s' above and wanted matching cables):
A 1/8" male to 1/4" male (connects the PCDP to the XIN amp)


A 1/8" to 1/8" right-angle for connecting the PCDP to a second amp + a 1/4" female to 1/8" male to connect headphones with 1/4" to portable amps:

Whoa you really do professional quality cable and recable! Where did you got these wooden barrel from?
post #2625 of 13945
I've ordered 10 of them from someone I know who works with wood for a very long time already

I didn't anticipate the great demand for these. I've only got 2 left which I keep for myself. Maybe if I'll have a need for a large quantity I'll order about 20 or so of these
