Jupiter Copper Foil, Paper & Wax Cap Versus Jensen Cap 0.10uF 630Vdc Copper Foil Ceramic
Jupiter is the far better choice ...... if you want more inner detail, richness and spot-on tone.  The Jensen cap is very good, but not as neural top to bottom with an obvious darkening and thickening of the sound   
What are the best sounding DIY power cables and connections, opinions please ?
You should simply clean the stripped ends of the Duelund cotton wire with rubbing alcohol.  Clean throughly and no issues. The Cotton version is far more natural sounding with better tone and realism. The Polycast is more closed in sounding. Not a...

Steve, the Polycast is not meant for speaker cables really. It is made for power cables. The Duelund 12 gauge stranded and tinned copper in COTTON sounds better for speaker cables. Far more lively and open. Smoother with more realism and purer, mo... 
Update on Paul Laudati of Clear Day Cable
Paul was the best. Kind and full of integrity. An absolute gem in this industry.

No, not tube dependent at all on the Duelund.  I use them in SS and tube systems. They will help SS gear sound more like musical tubes 😁 
Who has Luv for the Lyngdorf 2170 and is thinking about the 3400.
I find my 2170 loves a balanced power isolation transformer based conditioner in front of it.  
Really bad sounding power cables ?
Never said I don’t like shielded power cables. At least that is not what I universally currently believe. I said that one specific power cable made with Duelund 12ga 600v Polycast wire sounds better unshielded. I tested several times after proper ... 
Perfect Path Tecnologies ‘The Gate’
Correct, talk to Tim as your concerns are leading you towards extreme statements of no real value here. Erik, you have gone from claiming snake oil to crying “fire...fire” in a crowded forum. Your desire to know more is both understandable and rea... 
Perfect Path Tecnologies ‘The Gate’
I know. Part of us all feel this way, but you have 90 days to determine if it is snake oil. No risk, no games, no snake oil with this fact. Also the builder has integrity as a person and professional. You will indeed be refunded if you don’t love ... 
What are the best sounding DIY power cables and connections, opinions please ?
I have tried it.  Not bad for the little money, but not near the musicality and realism of the build I outlined above. It was a little hard sounding and lacked refinement. In addition, solid core can be very dangerous when used in power cords. If ... 
Ribbon midrange pros and cons
Correct, Raal tweeters are fantastic and the sound coming out is also dependant on the overall speaker design. Just cannot say all ribbons sound bad as a blanket statement. Just not true. Robert of Acoustic Zen incorporates a ribbon in his Crescen...

Sounds nice @dgarretson ! How much did the wire cost?  
What are the best sounding DIY power cables and connections, opinions please ?
Sorry, but the above post is just not reflective of the truth in all situations. Far from it. Some folks know how to do things right and happen not to be in audio industry full time. There are DIY guys that are every bit as talented as some builde... 
Pulsars and the Mythical Armchair Speaker Maker
DIY is absolutely one very real means to great sound at astounding savings. Been there, doing that and so loving it!It does take some skill and experience to get to the point of making gear as good or better than big dollar brands.  That experienc... 
Perfect Path Tecnologies ‘The Gate’
I assume the Gate would have the same or greater impact on your rig at the breaker vs hardwired to your stereo room outlet/outlets. Right? Plus the rest of your home electronics benifit! Charge your iPad in 5 minutes!
