Anyone build a LOD cable?
I may be building one soon.
My sister wanted a cable like the purple one in the pic for her car.
She has a VERY nice game room in her house, with a decent stereo (All Paradigm, powered sub 10", speakers hanging on the walls, 4-Micros), Onkyo AVR, it sounds good (I built it).
I started thinking, if she kept the female 3.5mm part (with dual rca's) connected to her audio system in the game room, she could just grab the IPOD and the purple cable, take it in the house, and plug it directly into the female plug and jam in her game room if she wants.
I know these are widely available, but I doubt many are made with 26 ga. 6N OCC single crystal solid core copper wire, Furutech rca plugs, Cardas Quad solder.
Although it can be made with better plugs/components I am sure.
Not sure about a LOD cable.
Anyone ever make the IPOD plug directly to RCA plugs?
I have never seen one.
I have seen the IPOD plug to 3.5mm, but never to dual rca's.
I haven't really searched it, but if it is possible, I may go that route.
I understand it bypasses the internal DACS, and allows something like the ONKYO AVR to do the conversion instead.
After listening on My Atoll pre amp, I don't think I am loosing alot as far as a second connection goes.
Its pretty damn sweet!
Naturally I am going to finish it exactly like the purple cable in the pic.
