Nicely done. Did you make these cables? If so, where did you get the red/black wrap (tech flex)

Over the past six months I have added a full set of Cullen Cable from wall outlet to speakers. I'm using the TOTL Crossover Series power and speaker cable and their Nitin Digital cable; excellent sound and value.

Cheers,

Scott

I make my own using Duelund wire. Speaker cables are 16ga unterminated. I strip off enough of the jacket to run it through both sets of binding posts and avoid using jumpers. IC's are Duelund 20ga with decent RCA's I solder myself.

IC are mostly Kimber KS1016 and KS1116. With a few Cardas Parsec
Speaker cable Kimber 8TC with a 1" cotton insert puffing it up a bit. WBT connectors
Powercords mostly Pangea latest. some DH Labs wire with Furutech 28 Rhodium plugs
Furutech GTX-D AC Duplex
Toslink Lifatec glass
SPDIF a Zu I bought years ago
Power conditioners: PS Audio P-600, and a Furman REF20i (all Duplex in them replaced with Furutech GTX-D)

Sooner or later I should upgrade the speaker cable? it is the oldest wire in the system.

I plan to evaluate my complete loom of Analysis Plus interconnects and speaker cables in 2019. I have Shunyata power cables and a Denali, which have been widely praised in reviews and from owners. I never hear about their speaker cables and interconnects. Why?

Audioquest, for example is well regarded and popular all around. Had thought there would be a fairly straightforward explanation.

Appreciated!
