Hi Eli, thanks for the tip. I checked the site you gave me but could not find the plugs. I'll do some more searching. In the past I would use Phoenix Gold cables. They were gold plated and had the plug end molded right on to the wire so they never would come apart or loosen at that junction. With a sharp knife I could shave the plug part down so they would fit beside each other with no strain.They were gold and cheap but well made. Thanks Eli, the search continues...Mark K.
Some "deep" links at MarkerTek follow. Your browser has to temporarily allow all the java scripts MarkerTek employs.
Thanks again for your help. When I looked at the schematic it takes a simple change of a cap. and resistor to mirror image the tuner and aux. section more or less just like you said. If I change the ceramic jack to the values of the other tuner and aux. I think I'll be ok. .....Mark K.
Instead of installing new gold jacks on some tight spaced vintage jacks I want to build a new set of cables with the stuff you recommended. My old jacks will be shine inside and out and be taut with some needle nose work.
I hate to sound like a dope but the Mogami wire has 3 inside wires not 2. Do 2 go to the ground spade or 1 to the ground spade and 1 to the copper braid with the strain crimper? I have not seen the wire yet and am thinking in co-axial terms. Thanks Eli or anyone else....Mark Korda
That third wire, the copper one is the shield, which should be connected at one end only. You connect the shield at the source end except for phono, where you connect it at the destination.
