Hey Old dude,

I never got a chance to try some of jbens ideas but I was going to do a sort of nordost clone. My thought was to have multiple strands side by side, paint it with some C37 and wrap with some teflon. Would have been a pain to make but probably would sound awesome.

Anyhow glad you had the roller balls to try my hairbrained ideas. Seems like audiophiles bail out at a simple test these days.

Anyhow what connectors on the BBE? I have some neutrix XLRs going in and out. Duster pointed out some pricey alternatives, but the challenge with making your own wires is that when they sound good enough that is enough and more don't quite get made. I made 3 different sets for my headphones and only use one. Its winning characteristic is that its the longest...but its soo clear and detailed but not sterile. Bass resolution is amazing.

Here is what is going in and out of the BBE. FWIW I would easily use this config for speaker cables though each run would be the same polarity.
