Thanks Dave, I needed the help.

Toby, I got the tutorial fine, I could read it. I just couldn't find the pics when clicking on the image icons.


I do see what you mean. Lambs, apparently. :roll:

On the tutorial page, the links to the parts sources are outdated. One gets a 404, another is some kind of heavy metal speaker cap. Not the cable parts the OP helpfully wanted to show.

And of course there is the Belden 85259 recommendation, which was current several years ago, but which I have not seen recently.

I think the image links are just too old, like the other links. The pics which were once there are gone into some webmaster's bit bucket. And I think the tutorial is just fine, but the parts and sources need to be updated.


OK hey thanks very much for checking it out Toby I'm off to look at some 8402 :)

Some of the older Belkin cables sold on ebay as excess stock..are actually made from PC-OCC wire.

There are 6 PC-OCC manufacturing stations/systems on the planet, from what I was told, when I was told. Neotech is one of them.

The US economic crash came just as Belkin tried to go high quality, and used PC-OCC wire across many products. They were excellent product for the money. Big time. Yet, that crash came along and the bottom dropped out. Most of it seemed to end up on eBay and the like.

If you know what you are looking for, you can still find some. The speaker cables are particularly excellent for the money. IIRC, about $40-50 for a 50ft roll of 16g 99.9997% PC-OCC solid core and ribbon wire. Cut the outer skin off, for a better sounding cable. (simple twisted pair for neg and pos runs)

Here's a finished set, not the raw roll. Tough to beat for the price.

Hey, lets not forget OZ Enterprises Unity line of cables....check those out. Big bang for the buck there, and you can sometimes score a really good deal on his ebay auctions. :wink:

Very pleased with all my cables from Omer...plus the top-notch sales and support that come with the purchase!


+1 I just recabled my whole system with the Solid Links. Great cables. They are just out of your price at $70 for a 2 ft - but if you can swing it, great cable. He picks up shipping too for CAM members!

I am looking for a recommendations for a new cable, including ground wire, from my Pro-Ject RPM 1.3 turntable to my Pro-Ject Tube Box S phono stage. Lots of options out there in the $100+ price range, but I'm feeling that's overkill.

Prefer something available online in Canada.

Hey Shawn: Consider Wireworld (WW) cable; if you can stretch it a bit (the price) consider the WW Solstice 7. If not, the model below has received very good reviews.
