how do u all make the Y junction of the mini to RCA cable? shrink tube?
i saw from the head-fi there, the starquad have 4 wires inside, that means 2 for each channel RCA, right? after connecting it with the RCA plugs, how do u all make it thick jz like 3rd picture of alamaklor? wat kinda sleeves u all use?

p/s : wat's the techflex for? beauty purposes?

greetings masters...

i was wondering if anyone could help me identify these RCA plugs coz they dont have any markings on them...

the male plugs were bought for RM15 for 1 pair (RM7.50 each)... once again i dont have time to go jln pasar so i just bought them in an electrical spare parts shop in SS2.

the female plugs i cant remember how much per piece doh.gif

im planning to use them to make RCA splitters (1 male -> 2 female) for audio using CAT5 cables (NOT CAT5e... just normal CAT5).

forgive the picture quality as i took using camera phone (w810i)..heres the pix...

the female connectors

u mean wat brand is it? no brand, female is generic, male is is a replica of sumthing, still, no brand if that is wat ur asking.

I strongly suggest u not to use CAT5 cables unless ur gonna make a giant cable of at least 4 cat5 cables (which wont fit the plug).

yaa..4 pairs of cat5 aka 16 smaller pairs of the twisted super not flexible wires. Ppl are raving of cat5 as a cheap replacement of speaker cable when they are in a massive config as in 4-8-12 even 2 would werk but that would already be big.

U would say, how would i know..i would answer, i built both, i haf both in my hands and my current neutrik+canare cable is far more superior (significantly better, audible difference) compared to the cat5 cables that seems to haf no difference from a chapalang rm5 factory cable.

yes agree with you ijan,
madman, I didnt understand why you want to make 1 male -> 2 female,
why dont you make 1 male -> 2 male.
and why you use cat5 cable, sound no different.
why dont you try component cable,
you can get it at SS2.
or use canare cable.

i need to make 1 male -> 2 female as a splitter to 2 seperate output units..... (both output units have different inputs and i already have the cables for them... but the source of both of them are RCA males...hence the 2 females)

using cat5 simply because i have some biggrin.gif besides.. i just need a short one.. not a long one... mebbe even less than half a foot long tongue.gif and oso doing it for fun and learning and this will only be my 2nd DIY cable hence all the questions...

and whats component cable? which shop in ss2 has it? the one on same row as MCDonalds or the one behind pelita nasi kandar?? canare can get in ss2 meh?

ill probably be making real mini-mini IC later on when i actually have the time to go Jalan Pasar and get some proper cables and plugs.. but for now.. still in learning stage so playing around here n there

alamaklor is using techflex. it's a brand. he conduct a bulk before. and many ppl had bought that too.

it's good for speaker cable. but it';s not for interconnect. twisted cable like that easily pick up radio wave. especially if the cat5 cable is using PVC skin. not teflon.
i had made one super mini inter connect of stereo using the method. and the material is teflon skin silver coated cable.
sound. not as good as canare.and if our hand is near by the wire. it will humm heavily.


mADmAN
suggestion for you. try to sleeve the join part with some cloth sleeve before heatshrink it. it will help to hold the wire in place. and maybe make the wire same in diameter. looks better.
=)


Editted : Typo : hole Aka Hold
