Okay, first let me say this - if you don't believe in upgrading wall outlets, that's great and I respect that, but this post is not for you and there is no need for you to comment on it. :| If you are still reading, I have a question to posit: If you were to upgrade your wall outlet(s), would you ch...

Hi all,

Does anyone who lives in or around Winnipeg own a Cable Cooker?
I may want to buy it from you, or see if we can work out some type of time rental arrangement.
Conversely, if you do live in or around Winnipeg, and you are interested in a group purchase/sharing arrangement, let me know.

Sorry folks!

Hi all, Just an informal poll about what material you prefer your interconnects, plugs, etc., plated with. If you have any personal experience with changing from one type to another, for whatever reason, please share it. Do you prefer certain types based on the application? Share that too! If you ar...

Live recording = eyes closed (pretending to be in the crowd)

Happy New Year all, Well, the sleepless nights continue, so I figured I might as well make them productive and get back in "bid-ness". On a different but related note, while on hiatus, I wasn't able to completely turn my brain off and I came up with a new design :idea: for a grounded plug ...

your query suggest you have little to no knowledge of the product, rather considering only its "upgrade" potential combined with that other difficult to characterize concern: "...the masses wouldn't label me a hypocrite/full-o-sh_t for offering them as an option..." ... No serio...

What are your thoughts on Furutech Fi50 plugs? Are they the real deal, and/or are they worth it for the right price? Or, conversely, are they over-hyped/over-priced? I ask because IF I was able to get a deal on them, I would need to be assured that the masses wouldn't label me a hypocrite/full-o-sh_...

In my experience having equipment on a stand between the speakers is not a problem given that the stand is behind the front plane of the speakers. Agreed. Get any "first reflection" issues taken care of [IE. bring the speakers out front as much as possible], and you're in good shape. Chee...

Hi all, First, a quick clarification - I changed my username from 'nrg1275' to 'NRG Custom Cables' Almost everything changed over to the new username, with the exception of old forum posts, which are still under 'nrg1275'. Sorry for any confusion. In other news, I've been cooking up a few things in ...

Hi all, Here's a sneak peak at a proposed new version of 'The .1' (The Point One). I know, I know - I really should look up the term "hiatus", shouldn't I? :P It starts with the new v2.0, in which I remove the the thick rubber jacket that normally encases the conductors and insulation, and...

In my very humble opinion, the only (currently available) Oppo that may be worth its salt as a CD player is the 205. I tried the 203 in an effort to have a single deck solution, but my Panasonic BDT210 is a better CD player. I couldn't bring myself to spend $1500+ CAD on the 205, so I'm currently in...

Hi all,

Just a quick F.Y.I. - we will be welcoming a new addition to the family very soon (the human family, not the cable family - yet), so I'm taking a little break from production until things settle down a bit (as much as that is possible).
Thank-you all for your patience and support.

Quick follow-up: The fabric is typically used as a lining for bags/purses/wallets/etc. to protect electronics and credit cards from being scanned/hacked, and the paper version is typically used in cell phone cases. Cost-wise, it would be equivalent to using a copper braided sleeve, and as far as it'...
