I've searched this forum and came up empty on what I'm looking for. I purchased a used set of tools and all my materials to follow the recipe provided in http://www.bus.ucf.edu/cwhite/theater/DIYCable.htm to make DIY cables. My Outlaw 990/7125, and Oppo 971 will be delivered today...so tonight I will be making cables. I want to test each cable as I make them. I'm assuming I can use a volt ohm meter just to make sure the cables are at least connected correctly. Is it simply checking conductivity between the ends and between the ends and the outer part? or is there more to it than that? Any other last minute recommendations/hints or suggestions? I'm using both the L-5CFB and the LV-77S wire. I have the proper RCA ends for each wire. I'm also making some with FP-C5F ends.
