Thanks Mark! Seriously, I think making that tonearm cable was harder than putting the Paradise together -- and only one smallish thing went wrong. I did notice today that I managed to get the channels reversed I wired the DIN correctly I think so perhaps it's my Javelin arm lead that's backwards? -- Anyway I'll just reverse the cartridge leads next time I'm in there, and for now R and L and reversed going into the 32.5...YNWaN wrote: ↑Tue Sep 29, 2020 12:12 am Nice job on the cables bud - I fully appreciate how frustrating they can be to assemble.
So, you aren’t getting any radio breakthrough from any of the unshielded cables you have just built? The only problem was the run to the power amps?
I’m looking forward to any further thoughts you have. Try the AnaKonda gain too.
No radio breakthrough -- it was just the run to the power amps (or maybe the ferrite toroids are able to cancel all accumulated RFI from the entire run)?
I got a chance to listen to more records a bit louder today and there's no doubt: very clear improvement, really quite amazing, what I would call a 10%-15% improvement. Clarity, texture, zing, snap, realism... pretty remarkable (reMarKable?). Yes, I did end up spending about $425 CAD on the materials for the four cables I made this weekend, but that seems to have been money well spent. Whether I needed to drop so much on the Furutech connectors is a story for another day... (The Star Lines were $15 for 4).
And yes I'll give the AnaKonda another shot this weekend...
