I looked at his braided interconnects, and I'm not saying they wouldn't sound great, much better than the ones I'm about to describe. But just to throw out an idea, I don't begin to see the rationale for so much wire, which makes his braids extremely expensive. I used to make cables roughly like that, with as many as 6 wires signal and 6 more ground. Then I discovered Stalth cables and quite making my own for my own system, since I couldn't come close to their quality. But I still make cables for friends with lower end systems, and I use as little wire as possible, even to the point of making a double interconnect, with only 4 wires total, 2 for left and 2 for right, and in each of left and right, 1 for signal and 1 for ground. I make a fat braid, NOT like Kimber PJB or KCAG, and one thing I'm absolutely sure of, from direct comparisons of braids done each way, is that a fat braid (at least 1/2" diameter) sounds clearly better. These interconnects have to be double so as to have enough wires to braid. Keeping the wires down to 1 for signal, 1 for ground, in the cables I've made, and not saying anything about the ones from the DIY site that I haven't heard, made them better-sounding cables than my former multiwire braids. And when using Kimber silver, you save a LOT of money!
Tom, I use the same 25ga. Kimber silver wiring in my interconnects as they use in their Select Series and Black Pearl Speaker Cables. This cable first starts off as a twisted pair (1 signal and 1 ground). When I first designed this cable it went through 3 stages of design. First was the twisted pair which I thought sounded good but it had a thin tonal character to its sound. Next I built a quad braid (2 signal and 2 ground) and here I thought the cables overall sound was warming up which provided much more extension. The braid cable (3 signal and 3 ground) offered slightly greater extension with a more fleshed in soundfield which I found appealing in many types of systems. The cable I'm very proud of is the Belden 88232 coaxial cable. In every system I have tried (solid state and tube) I have found this cable to be superior over many $1000 IC's. This cable has been able to remove a good -3 to -6db of background noise out of a system to provide a pure black noise level. Take care
In the "check it out" vein, look at the silver cables being sold by Home Grown Audio. They offer their silver interconnects as kits for incredibly low prices. Their Web site address is:
