GB, just finished them,, Will be on their way to you tomorrow!
Those look nice! Can't wait to hook them up in my system. How long does it take to break them in?
In pro audio on location recordings, XLR cables of up to 300 feet are often used. At 300 feet total capacitance isn't a big deal, so at 25 feet it shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks for your interest... My xlr cables are about 30pF per foot. Only thing is braiding 25 ft. Of solid core cables is not trivial by hand.Tuan
Some amps are more sensitive to capacitance than others, so I'd be careful with the above generalization, especially if you aren't using pro amps.
Actually, big expensive machines have nothing to do with absolute cable quality. Sure, these big machines can make cables in VERY LARGE quantities and hold a certain spec tolerance the whole time. In that regard, consistency with VERY high production is great with machines. But the idea that only machines can produce high quality cables is absurd. Keep in mind that the big cable manufacturers are married to their machine investment. With machines come limitations that don't apply to the small manufacturer making small batches of specialty cables. With that said, there are some folks building small batches of cables that use VERY well made, super high quality, tight tolerance, individual conductors produced by machines on their products. What these folks are doing is bridging the gap between what can be made into the final product straight out of a machine, and better design geometries and material combinations that cannot be done economically in any other way, than by hand.
We are dealing with balanced analog interconnects, so a power amplifier's output is not a factor. With modern low impedance interconnect output stages total capacitance should not be a problem, but some microphones have much higher output impedance's to capacitance can be problematic.
