Basically it is an industrial spec cable that might possibly be used between inverter drives and three phase motors. And obviously as everywhere there is industrial cabling and then there is INDUSTRIAL cabling, if you get my meaning.
I did experiment with servo drive cabling too but preferred the sq of the ac motor cabling.
Not particularly cheap but anything worth having usually is not anyway. However cost even with connectors and a bit of fancy outer braid is still a lot less than some designer cords.
All I will say is that my price was..... well , gratis.
Leftovers from various installation projects.
Just something I started toying with a couple years back tbh.
I was fortunate enough to jump off the ever increasing spiral of cable “upgrades” a while back and miss the designer cables not one jot.
All my power cords are home made from cable most people here could only dream about.
Speaker cables are also home brewed from not quite so exotic materials, simple Western Electric copper cabling obtained on eBay.
Interconnects are even simpler cable but still not of a form available commonly on the street.
All in the rca and xlr connectors cost more than the actual cable.
Nice looking braided outer cover also on the cheap on eBay.
My old Weller is working very nicely thank you.
Some advantages of being industrial installation electrician working alongside Siemens and similar ilk.......
I don’t believe I got around to mentioning actual gauge but I might have gone overboard on a couple...lol.
An Anaconda would be easier to wrestle into place behind my rack than a couple of the 2 foot cords I made.
Connectors are a necessity, bit of colored braid just makes it look purty.
Lipstick on an Anaconda if you like.
I’m sticking to Discworld theory here.......
I just saw Elvis jogging.
And then he is having tea with Hitler and Michael Jackson.
Whoops sorry... Spoiler alert... doh.
Good luck with the knee, mine is probably 95% now so no complaints here.
I just finished watching season 2 of Altered Carbon couple nights ago.
Ready for Poe to resurrect Tak!
So you do NOT believe in system synergy then?
Where different components and different cables WILL give different results all dependent on ones particular system configuration.
A WireWorld Platinum Starlight 8 ic will sound different in my system to yours to a.n.others.
And thanks to Almarg for putting into words so eloquently what a lot of us KNOW by ear and experience.
The same cable in two different systems with differing components WILL sound different, sometimes shockingly so!
Reviews of cable can be usefull but until you try them in your own system you are just never going to know.
So companies like The Cable Co with their lending program are very usefull in this situation.
Good luck to all, stay safe and Happy 4th of July if that is possible in these uncertain times.
Of course it is is possible that the same cable in two different systems COULD yield similar results, I do not believe anyone said that was not possible.
Just not very likely unless all the components from both systems are similar in capacitance , impedance etc for the same functionality .
With the vast profusion of equipment out there from many varied manufacturer Inc home brewed even, I would hazard a guess most unlikely.
I was waiting for some witty snappy comeback.... But I guess that will have to do.
Over the years GK I have figured out there are indeed sides on this forum.
And then there is you......
Well this sure went to hell in a handbag real fast.....
Yes we have double chocolate chip!😁
Come to the dark side.....we have cookies!
Gee whizz GK.... That is just so..... You.🙄
I expected better GK.....
Maybe another coffee?
To get sort of back on track have some borrowed speaker cables that will be going in this afternoon that I have heard in another system.
Be interested to see how they " sound" in my system.
Because if everyone really believed this then no one would be recommending any wire
Which is exactly why I rarely ever do.
And why I cover the vast majority of my statements on suggestions of anything with verbiage like , " in my system, to my ears etc".
Not as some prefer to try and insist their views are law and irrefutable facts.
Sorry MC but if it came down to a choice of placing my faith in yours or Almargs viewpoints I have to veer towards Almarg.
With GK coming in a very distant last place.......
I see truths in Miller’s posts
I see truths in Almargs posts
I see truths in GK posts.
But I choose to believe what my ears tell me.....
I also see dead people so please just ignore me.....
Methinks the plot has truly been lost here.
Not only freebie rubber power cords, but lamp cord to the speakers.
Not totally accurate statement is it now?
- Signal Cable Digital Reference Power Cords.
- Vampire Wire Speaker cables.
We can all read MC, well I hope we all can.
There's gotta be SOME value in my two cents worth...
Oh for sure... About 1 cents worth....
First you have to define lamp cord.
Then what gauge, colour, blahblah.
Becomes nearly as tedious as Audiophool cables......
I know Al is more than capable of speaking up for and defending himself on here although my guess is that he is probably done with your banality but.....
WTF is wrong with you?
This from a guy who has the arrogance to name system parts after himself, I mean seriously... Miller Solid Core Door???
I guess I have to post again as you willfully ignored these parts of Als system.
- Vampire Wire Speaker Cable
- Signal Cable Digital Reference Power Cords
Now yes he does also state stock power cords but you know I have some of those too, like on my Nak cassette deck where it is a captive power cord, did you ever think along those lines at all?
Actually did you ever think before you decided to deride a member who has been of great service on technical questions to MANY members here over the years?
Yes I had noticed his ego is writing checks his abilities cannot cash.
Who do I consult to clarify that? almarg? millercarbon? Choices, choices...
Try a crystal ball, as likely to get an answer you like.
Or the old standby, the 8 ball.
I dont think I have such a good laugh for, well forever actually.
Keep it up boys and girls!
And the world waits with baited breath.
Or is that bad breath?
No fishing, no beaches, no golf, no beer...darn why DO I live in Florida?
Oh thats right, no state income tax......
No vehicle inspections....
