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'...

Hi all,

Does anyone use this type of product anywhere in their system (on cables, etc.)?
I know someone who swears by it, but I'm curious to learn what the masses have to say.
Cheers!

It's getting close to that time of year again...
Just curious as to what everyone is salivating over this season.
As for me, I think it's time to replace my 10-year old D-ILA rear projection TV - stop laughing at me! :oops:

The big gauge satisfies a psychological, not electrical, "need".


Yeah, I know. :wink:
I only said "probably right" because that's how I talk sometimes, but it is absolute - 12 AWG jumpers are unnecessary.
So... silver interconnects anyone? :)

I was thinking even 18ga was overkill. Depending on how the drivers are patched together, the 6" jumpers might never even see a fraction of that current.[/quote]

Yeah, you're all probably right.

Silver.....comes at a premium $.....but appeals to small few. My thought is if you made the speaker cable pair, it would have to priced at an attractive enough level to get buyers interested, but that might end up lower than the material cost and the labour to make them. Yup, silver really is hit o...

It would require 15x 24 AWG wires to effectively achieve a 12 AWG jumper (assuming my math is correct)... you have yet to factor in your other materials and labor. Your math is 100% correct. I should be able to make 44 6" [for example] runs of 12 AWG, and everything would be insulated by hand ...

This is kind of a follow-up to a recent post of mine about "common" lengths, but it's a different question/premise entirely. I have a 100 meter spool of 5N pure silver rod [24 AWG, 0.5mm] that I'm just sitting on for the moment [I was going to make a power cord out of it, but I'm conflicte...

Hi, Without the fancy banana plugs I would pay $25 -30 for a pair of 12 AWG pure silver jumpers that would fit between the RCA female jacks that link separate pre-amp and power amp stages of many fine old integrated amps. Cheers, David Neice That sounds about right. Any thoughts on the gauge? Forgi...

Would it be less than drilling holes into 1 ounce bars of bullion silver? I understand that you're being facetious, but I'm just trying to spit-ball ideas. I have a 100 meter roll of 5N silver rod, 24 AWG [0.5mm], and it has been independently tested and certified as 100% pure, hence the title of t...

If you were going to the expense of pure silver jumpers why add rhodium into the mix? stick with the most highly conductive metals Silver Copper gold cheers Makes sense. I've had mixed results with silver plating though, whereas Rhodium plating hasn't let me down. There's just something about silve...

Hi folks, Just curious about your thoughts on something. If you needed/wanted them, what would you pay for a 12 AWG set [4] of 5N pure silver jumpers terminated with Rhodium banana plugs? Is that gauge too high? Too low? Just throw out anything that pops in to your head [related to the questions, th...

Could you just do large batch runs of the cable and then cut to order and terminate Thanks for the input J.P. Unfortunately [for me, not for any potential customers], the main body of the cable will be constructed in such a way that I won't simply be able to peel back what for terminations [I know,...
