Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

All:

Pulled this off AudioKarma. Your thoughts?

Cables can and do make a difference and directional cables can in fact be of benefit as the cable on directional unbalanced interconnects has the shield only in contact with the connector at the source end.
Some say that a floating shield is detrimental to its effectiveness.

The following courtesy of Blue Jeans Cable:

Quote:
Twisted Pairs, Coax, and Audio Cable Design: So, what's it all mean to audio cable design?


Confusion of these concepts is fairly common, and understandable. One will often hear in audio discussions that "twisted pairs provide superior noise rejection," because it's often assumed that it is the cable construction itself, rather than the equipment circuitry, that accounts for common mode noise rejection; as we've discussed above, it's really the combination of the two which account for the phenomenon. This misconception sometimes leads to people using shielded twisted-pair balanced audio cable as an unbalanced interconnect; they will ground one of the two signal wires at both ends of the cable, and then ground the shield--sometimes at both ends, but sometimes only at one end, causing a loss of shield effectiveness. The problem with this sort of construction is that it dramatically increases the capacitance of the cable by adding the shield to the one side. Instead of just the capacitance between the two conductors, one now has the total of (1) the capacitance between the two conductors, and (2) the capacitance between the signal wire and the shield. As capacitance in audio cable is very definitely an enemy, this is a serious sacrifice to make, especially when there is no noise rejection benefit. Coaxial cable, not twisted pair audio cable, is the right choice when connecting unbalanced components.

Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

FYI: Before/After pics of my upgrade from cheap, crappy interconnects to James' custom made ICs. The quality/fit/finish is excellent, and thus far the sound is sublime (only 1 day listening time thus far):

Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

Just beautiful. Plus, you have a pool table. I have a pool table, but back in the woods, no one to play with. When I came home from the war, I was an ace pool player as we had a lot of down time. I moved to Charlotte, and went out to take the local players apart. It went well until I got into the real games, then I went broke. I might have had to leave town, but I met a guy named "Preacher". I will email you the tale. Give me 3 months notice, and I might still be able to give you a game.

I understand you forget more about audio everyday than I will ever care to know. I like it, that like me you just stack stuff close and don't need all that "rack crap" till you hit the lotto.

Blue Jeans Cable uses Belden wire. BJC doesn't design or make it.

I'm not that good of a pool player...merely adequate, barely~ 8) You can email the tale to my email button at the bottom of my post~

Thanks for the compliments. Don't be so sure that I know all that much about audio, either~ I've learned a TON on this & other forums over the past few years. I just read & try to understand/absorb what I can. I couldn't use a rack if I had one because my dearest puts up with my system, but won't tolerate moving her desk~

Re: CARVERaudio.com Interconnects

Sorry about that, my PM box is full all the time, and the forum dumps them so fast sometimes, i can't go back to some.

The IC's are usually 1meter or longer. I did make a few in the beginning that were 1/2 meters, but they were REALLY short, and I opted to just stick with 1meter and up.
If you really need 1/2meter jumpers, it can be done, but I suggest going with the longer cables for ease later on.
The overall wire length is cut to 1-meter, after the ends are stripped, and soldered, the finished cables are about 41-42" overall. Next time I have one in my had, I'll measure and post the actual length.
Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it... because nobody else will.
