Who has good prices on Eichmann Bullet Plugs? It seems like a lot of the suppliers have quit handling them. I need a good plug for 9.2mm OCC cable, and the Bullet Plugs are one of the few that I can size out to fit. Even that's a pain but it's a lot cheaper than going to WBT Nextgen.


Try Derek at Europroducts in Vancouver, he's the distributor. europroducts@shaw.ca Great guy to deal with.

They carry a number of connectors and cables, and apparently carry some DH Labs products. A great (and the only?) Canadian place to pick up some floor-spikes for speakers.

I picked up various lengths of bulk microphone cable for headphone extension from Redco. I was pleased with the over price and quality. I believe the connectors and jack came from them too (Neutrik, Canare and Switchcraft)

The stuff I picked up from them is found here: http://www.redco.com/shopdisplaycategories.asp?id=17&cat=Balanced+Mic%2FLine+Cable

It's not so bad actually. I my items shopped to the GTA area at a reasonable rate. "Post your DIY Canadian Friendly Cable suppliers."

They sell the same Belden cable that the top DIY audio cable suppliers sell, Belden 19364, 83802, etc for power cords, I wonder what the price comparison is?

Take Five Audio's website says their cryo-treated Belden 83803 12-gauge shielded Teflon-sheathed cable sounds better than the non-cryo version. I would hope that to be true. I paid about $9 a foot for the standard variety several years ago and found it to offer only a small improvement over stock. That was with a Marinco AC plug and a Schurter IEC ; better connectors might have made a difference but these were already of good quality.

If I can find a cryo-treatment facility in Montreal I'll have my 83803 cords done and see if it makes a worthwhile difference.

Has anybody used RG59 (inner core 20 guage) or RG6 (inner core 18 guage) like cables before . I have used these cables for years they are much cheaper and the RCA ends are cheap on ebay. Just bought 24 ends for $11.00. There are many different grades of these cables. I use the solid copper core cables. I have used these cables for sub woofer cables , inter connects and speaker cables. Due to the superior shielding, they eliminate hum.

Just wondering.

RG-6 and RG-59 "CAN" work for DIY audio interconnects but they are really meant for video use because of their 75 ohm impedance which is all wrong for audio use. Just because tractor wheels and racing car wheels are both available in 20" diameter does not mean that you should put tractor tires on your Formula 1 car or racing slicks on your Massey Furgeson farm tractor just because you can make them fit. Though I would love to see a Williams F-1 car take a curve at 200MPH on tractor tires in the rain!!!

But hey, it works at least as well as Dollar Store interconnects and if you like the sound you are getting, knock yourself out!!!
