[size=medium]Happy 10th Anniversary to the DIY Cable Gallery![/size][size=medium] [/size]
 
Can you guys believe it's been 10 years?!?
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the DIY cable gallery. Please post pics of your custom made interconnects, power cords, speaker cables, mini-to-mini cables, mini-rca cables, headphone rewires and anything else relevant. Should make for some fun eyecandy.

Please keep posts in this thread limited to images and specs of DIY cables and comments relating directly to them. This is a gallery first and foremost.
 
  1. People wishing to speak about cables in general, please visit the DIY Cable Question and Comments Thread

Handy Links and How-to Pages:
  1. Parts Express DIY IEC power Cable
  2. Jon Risch's  Audio DIY Notes
  3. Rane Sound System Interconnection
 

Here's a few of my first cables:

INTERCONNECTS
Sleeve: Teflon
Conductor: Pure silver 5ns (99.999) 24ga. x2
Config: Triple braid (one sleeve empty)
Termination: Eichmann Bullets


POWER CORD
Sleeve: Teflon
Conductor: Silver Plated OFC 10ga. x3
Config: Twisted Pair (ground wrapped around outside)
Termination: Marinco 8215 and Wattgate 320



To give credit where credit is due: I've borrowed a couple facets of the designs from Bogdan audio for the ICs and John Risch for the PC.
 
 
...as you can see below, I've gotten a little better in 6 years :wink:

My K1000 cable built from Canare Starquad cable. (gsferrari is auditioning it currently.)




15 Footer I made for a fellow Head-fier.


K1000 Cable - 5 Foot Crazy Cotton Insulated Solid Silver Sealed in a Airtight Rubber Tube


My Silly Scoubidou Power Cable

Playing with square braiding technique.

I am working on completing a pair of my special balanced XLR solid silver (three strands of cotton insulated 99.99% 22awg) cables. Pics will follow.

I would use the square braid technique, but it uses a ridiculous amount of wire, and is a pain to do.
