something for u guys to try.

 

experiment one

say copper and silver cables in an interconnect.

one copper and one silver for all the three channels

 

but...add capacitors parallel across the copper and silver

 

ipod----------silver----------------amp

xxxxx | xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx |

xxxxx = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx =

xxxxx | xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx |

xxxxx --------copper-------------

 

Note: Ignore the "x"s, they are there to counter the forum's post filtering, "=" sign is capacitor

 

this should add a delay, maybe allows the vocals or drum beats echo longer.

capacitor values can be experimented too.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

experiment two

as u know there exist several blends of solder

-regular solder

-cardas eutentic

-mundorf silver

 

how does each affect the sound?

-we only use a minute amount in the lod and mini jack.

 

what if we use them as the transmitting cable itself?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

experiment three

hybrid cables

in making hybrid cables we connect copper and silver cables end to end from lod to mini.

 

what if

ipod-------------copper------+++

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx +++---------------silver--------------mini

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

experiment four

imods 5g/5.5g video

sending the lineout to headphone out. there are several reasons for doing so.

-no need for lineout docks

-near zero risk of wires breaking loose to the pads

-right angle to right angle interconnects to external caps, resulting in simpler and compact implementation.

 

the pads for doing this should be the large yellow caps underside of the clickwheel connector.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

hope to hear from you ambitious diyers out there.=)
