My brother bought Danny's speaker cables kit and realized he didn't have the proper equipment to assemble them, so I built them for him.
Danny gave him instructions on how to put them together, but I don't think I followed those instructions exactly. Here are some photos of how I built my brother's cables. I'm not saying to do it this way. I'm just posting pictures for those who like to look at pictures.
The downside is that it took me about 12 hours to assemble, due to my OCD. The upside is that I got to listen to the cables for a day before my brother picked them up. Unfortunately, these cables sounded much better than the new cables I just bought from another company. Now, I'll have to assemble a new set for myself after I order them from Danny.
Here are some photos.
First of all, the cable is beautiful. It's constructed of 24 wires (12 white/12 clear) braided in a way that forms a tube.
I separated the wire into two twisted groups.
Each wire contained 7 strands of different gauges. For each wire, I isolated the two largest strands from the rest.
I took the larger strands from all the wires and twisted them together so that they would fit into a male tube connector.
These fit very tightly. I did not crimp the tube because I wanted to keep it round.
I soldered inside the tube first.
I wrapped the remaining smaller strands from all the wires around the outside of the tube connector and soldered them.
I applied heat shrink. Do you see anything wrong with this picture?
(My OCD failed me. I didn't notice that I had the red and black heat shrink swapped, but the mistake was obvious the first second I listened to the cables. I had to redo the heat shrink only on these two.)
I applied the white heat shrink over Danny's 'secret sauce' wrap (in red box) before the Y and covered all of that with white heat shrink.
I didn't use tube connectors on the opposite end so I formed it for bare wire use.
I ran out of red and white heat shrink. Here are the final results.
I drew red boxes around the secret sauce.
Here's a quote from my brother after he put them in his system:
"I don't think I have ever heard such a significant difference in a cable or speaker wire as these."
