    Did you sleeve each individual wire? If so what size wire did you use and where did you get the sleeve?
     
  3. BillsonChang007
    Yeap I sleeve em one by one. Got them both off ebay. the sleeve is a paracord 2mm. And the cable is a 24AWG pure copper silver cable
     
  4. Allanmarcus
    Can you post a link to the wire?

    Was the wire insolated? If not, is paracord enough insulation?
     
  5. BillsonChang007
    It is insulated. Paracord was just for style only. Here's the link to the similar* product I bought http://www.ebay.com/itm/10M-Red-0-2...409643?hash=item3f4844d2eb:g:n8cAAOSwPYZU97CS bought mine long ago and I can't find the seller on Ebay during my short search.

    The sleeve diameter is kinda small even for the cable. Make sure you straighten the cable as much as you can to easily sleeve in. Sound wise, I like it better than AD's stock canare cable. Cleaner, wider and deeper soundstage most importantly even tighter bass and better mids

    Built another pair of RCA to go with my AD cable earlier :D (ran short of red paracord turns out 1 red and 3 black looks even killer!)

    Looks very nice, do they sell thinner ones? A little too wide for me.

    That is left as an exercise to the student (to discover one that fits your needs).

    Couple of cables I knocked up yesterday,

    Short interconnects for my Topping A30 / D30 stack, and a 2.5mm balanced to 3.5mm singled ended adaptor:

    Here is my semi budget build. 24AWG speaker wire and plussoundaudio plugs. I bought the speaker wire to practice my braiding and liked it so much I decided to complete it.

    Very nice! This is exactly what I want to do, right down to the plussound plug. Did you just put some heat shrink tubing on the y split?
     
  15. NTK1
    Yea. I had the splitter too but won't fit since the 2 wires are about 5mm wide together
