Damn... nice work. What camera/lens/setting you use to take such pretty photo?


Haha people ask this all the time and are shocked that it's just a Sony WX150 on their "Toy" preset. Nothing too fancy at all, it is an 18 megapixel point and shoot though. Thanks!

Oh and the paracord after the Y-Split is type 1 paracord.

  Here's a few recent builds. BTG SPC interconnects and a balanced-unbalanced adapter for a W3000ANV.
 
 

 

 

Beautiful. I like the angled 3.5mm connector. I'm looking for someone who can make a vintage looking short cable for a woody SR60i, I'd like to know more about these connectors. PM me, if you can?

Here are a couple cables I made for my HE-560s (color coordination is fun!

) and Fidelio X2s.  One thing I'm proud of is the idea to use a band of red heat shrink to mark the right channel, rather than all red.  I might redo this one, as it looks better higher up on the connector (using my other HiFiMAN cable for comparison)... or not.  The cable for the X2s is a simple 3-strand braid using Mogami W2799, 95 lbs. paracord, and Switchcraft and Neutrik plugs.  Much better than the stock cable.

I've been really inspired by a lot of the paracord braided cables in this thread
recently, so thanks for sharing everyone!  Finally got around to clothing my
naked HGA solid core braid with paracord and I'm really happy with the results.
It eliminated the microphonics and just made the whole thing so much easier
to handle and use.  I added a ViaBlue large mini plug to the project and blacked
out the screens.
 
I am a complete novice at soldering so please... shield your eyes from whats
behind those screens hahah!  Quit lookin!
 
Question!  What the hell kind of soldering irons do ya'll use?  That viablue mini
plug was SO SMALL!  I've just got a basic one from the hardware store and it
seems like the wrong tool for that job.

looks good
i have a pair of cedar cups
waitin to go on my sr80's
planning on a cable something like that
 
the via blues are a bit tough to solder
if you can replace the tip with something really fine
or even file it down it will help
 
i use one of these

its pretty basic and in expensive but it has fine tips
and allows you to adjust the heat which will get the job done
 
there's no end to how much you can spend on this stuff
a small vice is also a big help
