Harvested an old Cardas Headphone cable to make a balanced cable for the HD800. Neutrik 4-pin XLR connectors. The HD800 connectors are from Parts Connecxion and a royal PITA to work with.  

Even scarier

I made a cable

I wanted to know what the "best" (according to many head-fiers) ipod line out sounds like. Anyone want to buy it? It is still in perfect condition and I'll sell it to anyone for a GREAT price of $164USD s&h not included. ^_^

I think the full title ends with "Pays Jude a Visit" but I just love that the way the forums are setup it allows one to use their imagination to complete the sentence. ;D

LOL. I was really thinking it was a thread somebody started that got zapped or something. ;D

Hmmmf, I sell one for $399.00. >:D

You should really cover it in techflex. You could totally like charge twice as much if you did. And don't forget name brand logo heat shrink in an illegible font. That's how the really cool kids roll.

That'd be some big ass techflex! Can I use some fishnet stalkings and call it techflex?

Holy crap that looks friggin' sweet!

I'm gonna have to turn my rack around now, so people can see that beauty!

The fiberglass sleeving is gorgeous, and looks to be exactly the right size. Was it difficult to get it over the cable?

Nice! For my next project I decided to go w/ dual 4-pin Amphenol's. >:D

sweet. I really, really like the 14-pin silver Amphenol connectors I'm using for my electrostatic amps. I am now doing an external DC heater supply for a number of different applications and decided to use the new high current Neutrik connectors. I have some very heavy gauge cable (12awg x 4) that I'm looking to use:

The cable I used for the above is an 8-conductor, each with multiple sized UP-OCC copper conductors. These are twisted around a center polyethylene core then housed in a rubber sheathing. I've starting liking to "build you own cable" using the Neotech cable products of late. Quite nice.

Ooooh, I hadn't seen those. I smell a custom power cable in my near future.

I tend to use pretty generic stuff in my power cables, usually sourced from the local big box store. I'll have to look more closely at the VH audio stuff and Neotech for my current project which will have a 10A heater.

[edit]scratch Neotech off my list, any company that makes bulk cable that costs $300 a foot is bonkers.

That's what I use on all my power tools, I find I can make a Ryobi perform like a Festool with that power cable. ;)
