So in case anyone cares..... I just ordered the following:
Two: Neutrik NC3MX-B XLR connector
Two: Neutrik NC3FX-B8 XLR connector
10 feet of - Canare L-4E6S Star-Quad Microphone Cable
It was about $28 shipped. The guys on the phone at Markertek were super helpful
I'd like to assemble my own cables. I'm very proficient at soldering etc. What is a good source to get short lengths of cables and fittings without a large minimum order?
Will be making XLR and RCA interconnect and headphone cables. And I know its easier to buy but i'll DIY for fun.
So I caught the drop for the SU-8 a couple days ago JUST as i was going to buy from Amazon. Saved $50! But little concerned about the warranty... anyone know if I should check anything on the SU-8 before the return window ends?
Also caught the 789 drop so this should be a nice combo for my...
Wow, sorry I must have had a brain fart there. I edited my OP to take out the USB note.
I was confusing the DAC and amp requirements. So Im ok with unbalanced for this since I'll have the big boy in May. Resale as in I can sell it late. Or whatever. Just looking for a small, unbalanced, fun...
So I ordered a THX AAA 789 on drop day (or drop hour I'll call it) but doesn't arrive til mid May. For a DAC I'm mostly decided on the SMSL SU-8 since I need USB or Optical. (no RCA on my motherboard) Amazon can deliver the DAC by Saturday so I want a "temp amp" to work out any gremlins show up...
So I caught the last drop in time for the 789. It's my first amp. Right now I'm just listening right from the 3.5 mm jack on my PC. The HD58xs are very nice indeed.
Can you please recommend a DAC to pair with my setup? I am thinking since balanced DACs are so expensive that I can go with...
