    Hi
    I'm making up a DIY cable similar to the Russ Andrews 3 wire interconneccts/power stuff.
    So 3 wires braided like the Kimber stuff are all 3 wires terminated ?
    I so what is better 2 for the signal or 2 for the earth.
    Cheers
    Rob

    UK power leads are (or at least can be) 3-core. :confused:

    I'd use one for live, one for neutral and one for earth. TBH, if you're not sure about this stuff it might be wise to do some more research on the subject as it has the potential ( :laugh: ) to be very dangerous. :)s

    Hope ur having a laugh :D ,not using it for mains power,already made up some nice Belden stuff from TNT ;) making up a silver power interconnect between a NOSDAC and its 12v DC PSU.
    A RA powerpak 2 I've got uses 3 wires for the DC connection I just want to know does he term all 3 or just use the extra 3rd wire to create the weave(if the 3rd is not connected I wont use silver to create the weave)
    thanks
