Wasn’t trying to accuse at all. Just giving a heads-up as he’s a friend and prolific custom cable maker in the headphone circles.

Figured it would be good for all parties to know earlier rather than later.
Appreciate it bro, currently messaging him now!

lovely looking cables. Are you shielding both twisted pair and earth?

I have a new pair of plugs for Mrspeakers or Dan Clark audio.
I got a pair shipped from them direct, but I never used them.
I am in London UK - if anybody needs them.
I am only asking cost price.

That was my old design from 17 years ago. It didn't utilize a shield. For my current ones I use a mesh shield, foil shield and drain wire that connects to earth on the receptacle side. I'm using the Cardas rhodium power connectors now, they are very nice! I also went from 10 gauge to 12 gauge as 10 gauge is so unwieldy when the strand count is low. I'll try and get a photo of one for you. Before anyone PMs I'm not selling them, they take far too long to make :wink:

You should go for something like Berlin Cables, or United States Cable Company Sebbai. (I also live in Viken, in Norway). But you have changed to Lystad Cables yes? Americans and Germans have mostly copyrighted the names of our old god(esse)s and use them freely for marketing purposes. Don't wanna call cultural appropriation here since us few millions are "majority" in the eyes of the blind, he he. Lystad Cables is a good name anyways, but this is typical of a trend. Is Wotan Wires taken? Sort of nice that our cultural effigies become a marque of quality, so I'd say you are welcome as Vikings all of you !-) (I even have a soft spot for that happy and gay "Thor" in his pink undies jumping around doing slap stick with his marvel(ous) friends)........... You can still use those rune-pendants at least! I love them on my cables, and I guess they will have a problem patenting our old alphabets he he :wink:

Would you like to share how you learned that technique? 😁

Very good cable, looks awesome.
I had braid similar cable earlier, but later discarded it as sound thin compared to stock cable.

the technique i use was Kumihimo
