I work as an electronic assembler/ tester for an electronics company that builds equipment for cable and internet services.
Until recently, I didnt realize that all the money I was spending on expensive 60-90$ cables was not even worth it. This past weekend, I spent 40$ on cables.
I bought 70feet of RG-6 75ohm caoxial cable and some gold plated RCA connectors. I made a digital coax cable to connect my computers SPDIF output to my Denon receiver.
I ran the cable 32 feet, with no loss of signal. I then made a subwoofer cable that was 40 feet long using the same method.
I had been using a standard RCA 25ft cable as my sub cable, but I didnt realize how much bass I had been missing out on till now. It helps to do and have knowledge of making stuff like this. Otherwise i would have been dumb enough to spend 100$'s of $$$ on the same sort of cable built by Monster or Acoustic Research again.
From what I knew 6 yrs ago to what I know now, I wont be forking out money for expensive cables anymore. I'll just build em myself and sell them to friends who are dumb like I was to go out and buy the "BIG BRAND NAME CRAP."
So for all you new people out there who spent the last 3 weeks reading up on how to do it yourself, you will save a lot of money. I know i did, and its likely just as cheap to buy 1000ft of 75ohm coax cable then it is to buy one Monster cable. Thanks for all the help guys.

You can even wrap it fancy looking nylon braids in different colors and sell it as audio boutique cables. Put your own brand name on it:-)

Lots of money to be made in fancy looking cables.

Nice idea, but there really arent any small time places in the city where i could sell stuff like that. But with any luck, if i decide to keep it up, i likely could make some nice coin with people i know. then maybe get referrals.

My boss from work was over last nite checking out the sound difference with my cables. He was quite impressed, now i guess he is gonna give it a shot and see whether is sub cable will do the same trick mine did. He said he noticed it was quite muffly using the rca, then i switched the connections, he liked what he heard. So bonus for me being a do it urself type of guy.

You can sell it on ebay. All you need is to market it as your own custom product. Give it a nice fancy name. "Volden Audio Cables" has a nice ring to it:-)
