OK I've just made a stereo pair of Cat6 (couldn't get the cat 5 stuff from Maplin so bought the UTP version from here http://www.datalinkcabling.co.uk/cat-6.aspx?id=9), using the TNT twisted snake pattern i.e. each side is 6 runs of Cat 6, I then terminated them with some homegrown audio banana's. I've replaced my Chord Odyssey and they sound slightly better in the Bass and Mid, a bit tighter I think (but I need the girlfriend to tell me what to think), however I'm finding the treble way to tinnie, so have I messed something up. I admit I had a bit of a nightmare soldering the banana's and switched to non Silver solder since I just couldn't get the silver solder to melt easily on the banana's (they are quite big chunks of metal to solder to). So should I try and resolder, would this solve my problem ? and has anyone got any tips on soldering these banana's ? Or should I go back to the Chord's and forget it ? Cheers Slingshot Oh the rest of the kit is Tag AV32, Arcam P90 power amp and PMC OB1 speakers, if anyone thinks any of that lot makes a difference.
