Nice work! Bet they'll improve quite a bit as you get more playing time on them. Always nice to hear of a DIY method or project that brings nice results.
For the connector/cable diameter mismatch, linked below is a great idea from Duster to solve that. May work nicely for your cable(s).
PS: For Mr. Risch, it's Jon, not John. :)
A nice thing about the use of 3M Nexcare Transpore perforated PE medical tape is how firm it is when layered, even though it is slightly perforated which makes it a bit lower mass in nature than a non-perforated tape, and that a very thin but high tack medical grade adhesive backing is involved, without making the layers unstable from a mechanical POV. Audio connector set-screws can really dig into the layers to firmly grip the end of a cable without deforming the structure, while typical polyolefin heat shrink tubing is fairly soft in comparison. BTW, Herbie's Audio Lab's optional adhesive backing for their footers and pads is a rather expensive medical grade adhesive selected for its high tack but low mass properties.
great idea; will try this :)
I'm so stoked over the sound improvement with the first batch of cables I just ordered 8 more Cardas RCAs this time with the 6mm cable opening.
Will also try connectors using CAT-5/6 and possibly pure silver a bit down the road.
Saving money is great mmm-kay! : )
