Built a set of IC out of monster m1000 silver vid cable & monster m1000 quick loc compression ends. Have been trying to decide on what cable to use on & on & on. Thanks to doro & his suggestion "EZC - If you start counting strands, you shouldn't be building your own IC's. DIY is for pure enjoyment, don't get crazy or you will ruin the whole idea and the feeling. Build and believe." I used what we have here at the shop. My cables dont have any nylon covering or anything else. It looks like a 1 meter composite video cable. I listeded to my wifes cd Fleetwood mac "say you will" last night after installing the cables & I must say Im impressed! I hope as the cables break in it gets better. The sound stage has opened up & the depth was much deeper. With the monster 100's it sounded like playing through the dig or fiber optic cable & letting the receiver do the decoding. I dont listen to much music but hearing how big the sound was comming out of my system just blew me away! I actually listened to the whole CD! Im still in the wow zone! Im amazed that with just the mains playing the sound was that big! Wow. Built 4 more today & will hook it up to play a DVDA I purchased at CES. What is a good cleaner or what should I use to clean my rca inputs on the receiver & the dvd player? I do need to clean them, I used alcohol & a rag for a quick clean but i want to do a better job.
Receiver Rotel RSX 1065
DVD Player Yamaha DCV6480
