I just ordered up a batch of the Duelund 12awg 600V cable myself based on this thread.
Very excited to try my hand at making a couple power cords for the system.
Up to this point, I have not allowed myself to indulge in nicer power cords. cheaper but nicer looking amazon cords, and from places like signal cable, etc.
However, my components are to the point now where they are far more deserving. A recently acquired PS Audio Powerplant P10, My Directstream Dac, and Primaluna Dialogue HP. All need proper power cords.
So thanks to all for their input on this. Good stuff.
I second the question concerning the braiding technique. Your 2 way hot/neutral with opposite direction of the ground vs. a more traditional 3 way weave? Any thoughts?
Also, I remember reading somewhere about how you experimented with double strands of cable for each run of hot,neutral, ground. Am I making this up? If not, care to elaborate on that creation. Benefit? braiding technique? Impression?
Either way, I'm inclined to rely on your expertise in in the matter and use your single strand braiding method for my first attempt.
I went ahead and picked up a couple IeGO connectors to use. Lots of options in the connector category as well.
Copper. Gold plated copper. Silver. Rhodium plated silver....oooof.
Aint nothing in this hobby straight forward.
