    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    Thanks, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Actually, the main cable is the same (1/8") Techflex in black.  It is just stretched out more so the red cable shows through.  The design was inspired by my Zu Mobeus cable for my Senn HD600 I bought quite a few years ago.  I didn't feel like...

    ER-4P repair

    How long have you had them? The warranty from Etymotic is 2 years. I had a crack on my 4S's and had them replaced free of charge (under warranty). I have even heard that some have had repairs done for free even after the warranty period. It wouldn't hurt to give them a call. Good Luck

    Amp repair Advice

    I replaced the cap last night and it works! Unfortunately the 75V rating is going to bother me till the end of time unless I replace it. So I guess I'll shop around and get a proper one soon. Thanks to all for the advice.

    Amp repair Advice

    I forgot to mention that I do have the service manual w/ schematics. If I remember correctly, according to the schematic each side of the ps secondary saw 63V. 75V is over that but is it enough of a safety margin? Anyway, I just got back w/ a pair for $8 each so I'll give it a shot.

    Bending transistor leads for Dynahi?

    The AC ground from the power cord should be tied to the chassis. The PSU and amp board grounds should be tied together. Do a search for "star ground" here and you should come up with a thread discussing the subtleties of this concept. Tying the chassis and signal ground has solved hum problems...

    I have a love/hate relationship with vinyl. Actually I currently have no relationship with vinyl. Back in the day (before CDs) I constantly struggled with keeping dust off of my records and tt. The clicks and pops drove me crazy. Keeping my records and tt clean was a huge burden. On the other...
