I plan to construct a cable for my K1000.
The cable will start with bananas from amplifier end and will be terminated with Neutrik 4 pin gold plated female plug.
The basic lead is 16 AWG copper, silver coated, teflon unsulated wire. I plan to twist two leads together (making ~13.5 AWG) and then twist all 4 pairs together. To imagine it, think about stock AKG K1000 extension cable, but replace each wire with twisted pair.
I want to hear your thoughts about this configuration and also your suggestions about constructing extension cable for K1000.
BTW, currently I'm pretty stisfied by K1000 stock cable.
Electronics guys... we have our plusses and minuses. With advent of digital everything, we're being phased out

I will be curious to hear your results. All data I've read indicates that silver coated copper is not a good idea. Since I've never heard it, you'll have to be the judge. I would encourage you to use single crystal copper (OCC) if you can find it.
Of course, the best interconnect is none. I plug my K1000s directly into the SAC K1000 amp without any extension.
