    Happy 10th Anniversary to the DIY Cable Gallery! [​IMG] 
    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.

    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.

    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.
