They're all the same. Trust me. Math and subjectivism don't match. Math is a priori which all things derive their foundations from. To me, copper is copper, and mind you the bandwidth being used by the audio spectrum is only from 20 to 20khz, baseband digital has less to work with in even smaller operating windows than audio.

You sound like Dan (dansdata) in his battle against snake oil in the audio industry.

Metermen vs Subjectivist

This is nicer especially since I realized hair dryers aren't hot enough to fully shrink tube. So I held it over a stove.

How do you guys shrink your heat shrink? Lighter? Heat gun?

i use a lighter for the heatshrinks

@yeahs4.1
wats that thing u used for the split on ur mini-rca?

Just normal 22 awg tin plated copper wires. And those Neutriks are ~RM5 from RS. Its the gold plated version of the common REAN plugs, which RS also has for ~RM3.

yeahs4.1: Looks like a ferrite bead...

Yea. RS is 5 minutes from my house. How convenient wink.gif

I just place an order. They don't have all parts in stock, so they put an ETA and if the total order is >RM20 you get free delivery.
