i had made one of those too.
but i put all three wire inside a 1mm heat shrink tube , then shrink the tube to hold those cable tightly.
workings so far, quite durable too as the heat shrink is quite hard after shrink.

how ever, i tested it comparing to Canare L2T2S. and found out,
Bass is heavier than L2T2S, but a bit muddy...and soundstage is quite big different.
but for it's price, it can be consider sound good already .=P

One question about coax interconnects... if I want to use BNC plugs, does that mean the RCA output-input plugs have to be changed too?

I was hoping BNC plugs would "fit in" RCA plugs anyway xD or is it the other way around? Cables using RCA to fit into BNC plugs... or do both sides need to be BNC doh.gif

most of the time people use BNC simply because it is more secure. You can DIY a converter or reterminate your cable. It'd be best to either reterminate the cable, or buy/make another one.

Made a 1.5m RCA -> 3.5mm cable for a friend, terminated with lok silver point locking connectors and canare on the other end. How much do you think this is worth? Pm me with your suggestion smile.gif and if anybody's looking for some serious custom cables, do pm me as well. I usually use 12 AWG silver plated copper cables with a particular geometry for my cables smile.gif

my first ever DIY cable...

i needed a really short splitter so i decided to make one myself for the heck of it.

used 4 pairs of CAT5 cable (twisted), cheapo female minis and a metal housing male mini... all plugs below RM4 each. they dont have any good ones near my house and i aint that free to go jalan pasar...so itll do..

also sleeved it with UV reactive purple cable sleeves cap uglyvamp thumbup.gif

i know it aint much compared to the rest here...but it works! sound wise... i dont hear any difference tongue.gif
