    Hi all.

    I am trying to follow the well known path of the TNT TTS DIY power cable.

    I expected to be able to obtain a 50m reel of dual strand, double shielded (1. aluminium foil 2. copper braid) mains cable without any probs - eg. maplin - but I am struggling to find a source.

    Can anyone point me to a quality source within the UK?

    You need to be looking at RSwww.com

    They have a double copper braid power cable, in a variety of configurations.

    The Cy control cable make a very respectable TNT TTS but do go for the higher current carrying versions.

    All my replaceable cables are TNT TTS and I have always heard an improvement in one or more aspects of the music reproduction.
