now i know theyre nothing compared to most of the cables you guys have build, but hey you gotta start somewhere right??? i just bought parts off the shelf from altronics. these cables are destined to adorn the 4 (yes four) technics 1200's we have in our studio.




note the cheapo plastic rca's next to them. i had some cable lieing around and the connectors cost me next to nothing. so next time someone asks me for an rca, and i know i'll never get it back, i've got something to give them! plus theyre always useful to have in your record bag in case something screws up!@#

oh if you are all interested in our dj setup it's here:

thanks

thanks, I can make one more set, but my funds are lacking, If you think those are nice, Im contemplating on some very very very fancy looking cables, dressing up cables is the fun part, the money on the other hand is not.

those are plain??wow

ya, i actually have those auctioning, ive auctioned many of my cables, but they always sell at cost, so I do not think i will be selling anymore, i have 12 locking bananas left, just enought for one more bi wire set. I had plans of making dual sleeved cabling, with sleeved leads also, and possibly a wire loom at the base of the leads.

here is a 4 pole 3.5mm plug to 3 pole 3.5mm plug cable i made for a portable dvd-a player. the 4 pole plug is ground, l, r, and interlaced video. i grounded the 0v and video leads at the source end, since it is only for audio (the dvd-a player has a 16:9 lcd). the cable is blue starquad covered in black flextech, the plugs are switchcraft, and kester silver solder. this is only my third cable, and i don't know if this has been tried before. i made this to use with a sr-71 amp, and it works great.

thanks. i think it is 1/8" techflex--it may be another brand though. the smaller gauge sleeve allows the blue to show through.

Made a few more cables...

All cables are soldered with Kester '44' 63/37, plugs helped by PTFE, and pins treated with Caig Deoxit/Progold.

Belden 89259 analogue 1m with RCAs and black flex. I have six of them between my processor and power amp, and another to the subwoofer.



Belden 1695A 0.5m with CuTe bullets and blue flex. Perfect for digital audio or video.



1m Satellite coax (20AWG copper centre) with 28AWG 99.99% fine silver from Take Five. Covered in purple flex. Made from odds 'n' sods from the garage, really!



1m all silver (28AWG cotton-covered from VH Audio) as per CVH recipe, except I've used unbleached natural cotton rope covered in PTFE as a base, thus making the cable very flexible. Sounds fabulous!



Keep the pictures coming please, ladies and gents...

Best regards to all,
Paul.
