Several weeks ago I decided to build my own home theater cables using the Belden/Canare recipe that has been discussed on this forum. But, I didn't want to shell out the $$$ for the Canare tooling. After doing a lot of research and receiving a lot of help from the people on this and other forums, I've completed the cables and created a web page that describes the process. In a nutshell, I was able to build all of my cables and spend around $100 for the tools. DIY Belden/Canare Cables The site has descriptions of the tools I used and where I bought all the components. It has descriptions and pictures of the following cable types: Analog audio Composite video Component video Coaxial digital audio S-Video Speaker cables Please take a look at let me know what you think.
