Can I cut a longer RCA run to two shorter ones?
flutters,Virtual Dynamics used a form of damping in their cables.  In some instances, it was a form of aggregate that was inside a tube through which the wires passed.  You can go to YouTube to get an idea of some of what Rick did.  I know this be...

Upgrading coupling caps - which ones first?
I concur the furtherest up the signal chain.That in itself isn't much help though.  Perhaps, think of it like this: the capacitor is a bell and music signal is a hammer.  The further up the chain the smaller the hammer and the less the bell will r... 
RCA to 3.5 mm ??
I tried a BUNCH of different things. I found the greatest gratification when faced with a 3.5mm to RCA connection to use standard RCA interconnects and then the Mapleshade 3.5 to RCA pair adapter. It is cryo treated and looks ordinary but sounds n...

Magnet Wire Question
This is really bad advice.NEVER use a drill to twist wires together. If you do, you'll majorly mess with the structure of the wire material and spoil the sound.

Owens Corning 703
Pop,Your designer is on the right track. However, what you describe results in an absorber, not a diffusor. And, it will be a pretty big one at that. Moreover, it will not likely work at very low frequencies since it is only 1" thick and it is pla...
