Thanks Hsiu! How much did that TWcu wire cost per foot?
post #6602 of 13928
Ouch. Really pricey. More than double the price of dhc occ. What's the strand count buddy?

Ok I'm waiting for dhc to reply me with their strand count, and I'll take the one closest to 30 which is the 26awg silver strand count.

Here is my first completed headphone re-cable job.  DT48e with shielded 22ga mil-spec cable that I found at work.

What kind of braid is that?

post #6608 of 13928

It's a 4-wire round braid.  I found the instructions here

 

I think it is the same as a Litz braid.  The instructions on the linked page are really simple to follow and once you get your fingers used to it it goes pretty fast.  I think it took about 45 minutes to do the whole thing.

Being too lazy to read 445 pages and since we have a terrible search function here, doing a simple little recable, Canare star quad or Mogami mini quad?

Canare L-4E5C 21AWG or Mogami W2534 24AWG?

Over at another forum talking about actually using it for recordings, they said Canare sounds "fatter" and Mogami sounds "more detailed in the highs" Can anybody confirm or deny these statements?
post #6610 of 13928

i've used both and imo, they're both the same. i prefer mogami because i think its easier to strip off the insulaiton and work with.

I like Mogami better because it isn't as thick, and thus easier to work with. Also if you are using a REAN connector stay away from the thick Canare stuff.

The Rean plug is made for the Mogami mini quad :)

Actually there is a wide opening REAN plug but the individual wires do not fit through the holes that you solder the wire to and it just makes a big mess. I also prefer the Switchcraft plugs over the Rean. And if you are going with connectors for Canare then search for a seller called vintage_audio_labs on ebay they sell massive connectors.

Yes it ate the Rean connector.

The individual wires of the Mogami Quad or Mini Quad? I havent had problems with none of them.

No I mean the Canare Quad that is 20awg; it doesn't fit.
