    Default Information for diy power cables

    Currently I have lat cables and supra cables. Through the years and with changes these cables are too long and to be frank not really compliant so take a bit of manipulation. I would like to make some at the correct lengths so does anyway have any suggestions for a reasonable cable that's flexible . I looked at the supra 1.5 which may be ok but would love some recomendations or if somebody knows someone who does reasonably priced custom lengths that would be useful.

    Regards

    Colin

    Have you looked at the Mark Grant DSP power cables? They look reasonably priced.

    Find a Local building supply store, Buy a 12 ga extension cord and fittings to suit your plugs at both ends .
    Fit them. Could also go and buy some flex sleeving. Plastic Or cotton for that hi zoot ww2 appliance 'look'
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    I have considered that as well , if I can get some reasonable flexible Belden cable that would be ok but the last stuff I had was not very flexible.but I am open to all reasonable suggestions.

    That's what I would do.
    Although being skeptical re signal cables I suspect there may be significant variance between such.
    Not so open minded re power cablings though .
    In MY world they are either adequate to current demands ...or they are not :-)
