DIY Cable Gallery!! - Page 7

post #91 of 14141

Hi Nisbeth!

Most of my raw cables are from Take Five audio, though I have also purchased from Dedicated. Flex and heatshrink from Cable Organizer, and bullet plugs from a friend in the USA. The black RCAs are made by Dayton and are from Parts Express. I wholeheartedly recommend all suppliers, especially Take Five, who really go the extra mile to help.

If you need any supplies, let me know offline!

Cheers,
Paul.

Wooh, silver Eichmann Bullets Paul... did you recently win the lottery? Something is really attractive about that purple techflex, this is the first time I've seen someone use it.

Hi there to highflyin9 & Nisbeth

highflyin9 - the silver bullets are expensive, that's true - but in my system, to my ears, they make a worthy difference. What's not clear from the picture is that there's white flex over the cable aswell, but it's still really flexible, and really lightweight too. For the satellite coax, the purple flex is stretched quite tightly around the semi-transparent tubing that the copper core and silver wire run through, so it looks a lot lighter in reality.

Nisbeth - no problem at all! PM when ready.

Take care and best wishes,
Paul

a few new cables, experimenting with different cables and sleeving:




they are:
1/4" to 1/4" stereo cable made with cat 5, sleeved in croylek 5mm sleeving, altronics gold connectors i had lieing around.
mini to mini made with canare L2T2S, croylek black 5mm sleeving, altronics gold connectors.
mini to mini made with red proel HPC-210 (mmm love that range of colours, and cheap too!), altronics gold connectors.

hrmm now if i could only figure out a way to use my neutrik mini connectors with the proel or starquad and still make them look pretty....

edit: fixed the images.

Heh, those XLRs look like a little red goblin the way they are twisted up. Nice work BTW

thanks highflyin9 for all the help, i took some pics with my pda of the cable, but they are kind of blurry. I want to share but apparently there is a file size limit for attachments, and i don't have my own website

post #101 of 14141

Redxix, you should go to photobucket.com and get a free account, then you can link to them directly. Right now they are a little difficult to see.

I believe ImageShack is basically the same thing, you could try them too.

Quick question for the makers of star quad IC's terminating in mini-plugs: what's the part # on the star quad you're using? Is it the L-4E6S or the L-4E5C? I need to make me a couple of mini-mini ic's so after doing a bit of reading, starquad seemed like the way to go.

Thanx.
