This follows the discussion about FFRC, and my attempts to improve on its performance. I consider the insulation to be the weak area. \r\n\r\nIngredients required to make approx 2 x 2.5m stereo lengths.\r\n\r\n1 roll of 0.7mm enamelled copper wire cost approx £5 \r\n5m of polypropylene cord [orange]\r\n4 red, 4 black, beryllium copper 4mm banana plugs\r\n\r\nFix a small hook to an immovable object, secure a second into a drill chuck.\r\n\r\nThread a loop of wire about 3m long between the hooks and secure at the drill end.\r\n\r\nMadly spin the two cores together until the length is reduced to about 2.5m.\r\n\r\nCarefully release the wire as it will try to impale you as it unwinds a little. \r\n\r\nRepeat this twelve times. \r\n\r\nThen take 3 of these twisted pairs and twist them together tightly enough to so they hold together when released. \r\n\r\nYou will need to carefully cut the wire from the fixed hook. At this point it worth label up the three positive and the three negatives of this rope.\r\n\r\nRepeat this four times. \r\n\r\nTake the orange cord and two of the wire ropes and plait the three together loosely.\r\n\r\nUsing a multimetre identify the positive ends and the negative ends\r\n\r\nTerminate the wire ends with the banana plugs.\r\n\r\nStick it in your system and leave to settle down .\r\n\r\nThis cable has not got the sharp top end of my FFRC , but hasa smothness, neutrality, with better bass and imaging, trade off's that I can accept.\r\n[of course this is in my system !].
