Have you tried Allen's recipes at the smaller gauges and found you preferred the larger ones or is it just a personal preference that you think the small gauge is too small? I was a friend of Allen's and I found his cables to be spot on (for interconnects at least). I found that foils sound best with my digital setup and fine gauge (24 or 26...can't remember) solid core silver for my Analog.
I did not do his recipes but I took to heart the connector issues. I do not use rca connectors just number 6 or 8 copper rings and climp them. So five cents vs 50.00 cardas rca jacks I have.
In regards to size/guage I tried solid silver 16 to about 28 if I remember. The sound tended to lean out lose body the smaller I went. This is all about tuning the system. I have notice people prefer detail to tone. I am a tone guy. Never came out of a music venue and said to myself wow what a black background and the air around those instruments.
What I find the most amusing is number guys who are on a tube forum telling everyone they can not hear. Wonder how they made all the great violins without a scope and a blind test procedure. Wish I would have met Allen when he was around.
Enjoy the ride
Tom your tuscon? I am now residing in Surprise would you care to get together?
That might be fun.
" Wonder how they made all the great violins without a scope and a blind test procedure."
Why would one need a scope to design a mechanical musical instrument?
But I'll sure as hell bet the great violin makers had a calibrated tuning fork!
