There was some collateral damage from soldering iron...but nothing major..
Braiding was very fast and easy, but soldering that mini XLR took me half day...
Anyway, pleasure when I finally connected my old and good AKG 702 with my new cable to Violectric V2∞1 payed it off..
There was NO any difference to OEM cable that I can tell but at least looks fresh.
Beauty of this Tasker cable is in different color wire where 1 is tinned and other not.
I did use tinned one for common ground and copper once for hot port and starboard
Once braided and mixed light makes all the work by reflecting differently to make pearl like effect.
How did you come after this Tasker cable anyway??
Now looking for some cheap Ohno cooper wire for Audeze.
Haha, you get used to those injuries after much soldering
I came across this cable in a local shop by pure chance. I was looking for local/internet dealers of Mogami or Canare cable but every single one I spoke with (and there were many) only sold it in 25 metres pack minimum (some even in 50) which was not nice.
I've worked with Mogami cables before, but I just went to the local shop and asked for microphone balanced cable and there it was, it didnt sound familiar to me at the moment but since it was the same price as Mogami dual microphone cable, I bought a few metres of it for testing. Then I did a little research and it appears to be a very very fine cable (as they told me in the shop, and I couldnt tell the difference from the outside vs a mogami cable in terms of build quality) so profit.
Fun fact: This local shop used to work with Mogami but due to problems with dealers they switched to Tasker.
Also, I dont believe in audio differences between cables if they are pure and fine done, the only cables I believe modify the sound are those with strange impedances or variable ones (or uncommon ones), and I dont like that since thats coloring.
I did use tinned one for ground too
