Bit of an old threat, but still actual, so it proved today: Needed some new interconnects, a good excuse to finally try the 'good ole' kynar ones. Used some Amphenol plugs and made them today. Really shocked what these seriously cheap to build cables do. I have a pretty revealing active open baffle set up, using a field coil full range, helped by 4 Eminence Alpha's crossed at 150hz. All diy btw...
I made three of the. From my dac to the pre/active analogue filter and from the pre/filter to both my power amps (a 1,5 wpc flee amp and a 400wpc Hypex)
Anyway, if you're in the mood for some new interconnect, don't let the huge budget needed for this project stop you.

I’m not surprised. I have never had Duelund wires sound good and I’ve tried a number of different types.Pretty sure I've never heard any cable sound so horrible in my system. 40 hours in it's still downright nasty. Good and clear on mid-highs but otherwise complete trash. Out.
I actually wasn't looking for inexpensive specifically, but thanks. I'm happy enough with the Cardas cable and after this experiment will likely leave well enough alone. I just read a lot of hype on the Duelund and figured for the admission price, why not give it a go. Obviously not for me.I’m not surprised. I have never had Duelund wires sound good and I’ve tried a number of different types.
A good inexpensive wire for interconnects is Belden 1192a. It’s a shielded quad-wire where each of the 4 conductors is a 22g stranded copper. I am using a short pair of these (with WBT 0102 Cu plugs) for my SUT outputs and they are now my favorite for that spot. I also have a 4m set with ETI Copper Link and they are also very good.
