Hello I am going to be making a whole new set of interconnects for my HT most pressing a a DVD-A cable. I am really tired of paying out the big $'s for interconnects. What I am looking for is some good online resources ( to purchase) for connectors and cable etc. And any advice to follow while making. Thanks

An interesting side note pertaining to the DIY cable link I provided. The Canare die is expensive and doesn't fit all Canare cables correctly, in the case of the Canare component video cable (L5 something) especially. I would recommend getting generic crimpers and dies in spite of what the author says. If you take your time it'll come out great. The stripping tool is really cool but only necessary if you're making a large quantity of cables. Otherwise, once again, just take your time.

Tim I was thinking the same thing. I have one of those $14 Ideal coax strippers from HD that I think I could get to work. How about Beldin vs Canare cable any thought on this? I see that signalcables.com uses Beldin while BlueJeans uses either with Canare connectors.
