Or how it won't make a difference. /sarcasm
Anyway, I was bored today since as a government contractor, we get like every other Monday off for some holiday or other.
Went over to the local shop I like so much and chatted music, pre-amps, gear repair and of course speakers (They carry ProAc, JBL, JL Audio, B&W, NHT, Pioneer EX, Magico, Peachtree Audio and TAD...plus they have PSB and Era on consignment atm).
Before I left, I grabbed a few Nordost Shiva power cables...knowing they won't make any difference of course...and 35 feet of AudioQuest Flex series 14/2.
Came home, changed into some lounge pants and a t-shirt, gathered up a bunch of stuff and the end result can be seen below...
(2) 1.5m speaker cables for my Monitor 70s up front
(2) 1 ft jumpers for the Monitor 70s
(2) 10 ft speaker cables for my 15TLs
I also experimented a bit. The jumpers are covered with 550 paracord. I like the finish but it is a bitch to work with at anything larger than 14g wire.
I am in the process of finding larger diameter paracord as I would like to use it in place of the techflex I used on the longer cables.
I also got too small of diameter techflex but I will remedy that with my next order.
I already have some friends wanting me to make up cables that match their decor. Ugh...lol. Didn't want to do this beyond myself but it is sort of fun and relaxing at the same time.
I definitely prefer the bananas on the shorter cables over the ones on the longer ones. The knurled gold covers look better imho. But they are also $8/pr vs $22 for 15 pairs of the others.
Anyway, here they are. Feel free to be critical...I know they don't make a difference anyway. LOL
