Made up two DIY mains cables today to replace some Naim PowerLineLites. \n\nGot some;\n[LIST]\n[*]Belden Mains Power Cable “New 19364 – 83803 Combined Design”\n[*]Braided nylon sleeving (in black to tone down the red mains cable)\n[*]IEC C13 heavy duty (for larger diameter mains cable, up to 6mm2)\n[*]Re-used the Naim Type G plugs, (as I liked the floating cable retainer\n[/LIST]\n\nThe original mains lead had a cross section of 0.75mm2, whereas the Belden cable has a cross section of 2.5mm2, so a bit bigger. \n\nAll went together well. However, getting the cable to fit the plug was a bit of a struggle, but got there in the end, by careful manipulation of the routing of the cable. \n\nThey’ve been installed for a few hours now and have noticed a difference. They appear to be louder, with more detail for both the bass and treble, noticed some cymbals that I hadn’t really heard before. Slightly brash in some areas, but I’ll let them burn in for a number of hours and see what happens. \n\nMight keep an eye out for some heavy duty type G plugs for larger diameter mains cable to give a bit more space in the actual plug. Any one used some larger plugs, which they can recommend.\n\nIf it doesn’t work out, I’ll have to resort to Plan B and buy some ready made cables. \n\nIn the meantime, I’ll just have some fun listening to the Jazz\n\nDG….
