You can get Cardas dual RCA from Percy. But you can also easily build your own, using single RCAs. Both boards have solder pads at the bottom to accept home made dual RCAs

For power and speaker connections I'm using Cardas hookup wire (19.5 ga). Since I'm using it in umbilical cord, solid core wouldn't work. Also, Cardas seems to work better than everything else I tried so far. Solder pot or high power iron is needed for termination (multiple enameled strands).
Thanks for the information. Do you mean the Vampire Cast Copper Wire 26.5 guage? ($5 for 50 ft) chassis wire?

I found Cardas hook up wire very nicely priced at http://www.partsconnexion.com . Are there any US places that sell it? According to their website there is no US distributors....

Where did you buy your S&B102 TVC, I assume you are using this transformer in the power supply for your amplifier. I did a search for the Vendors Bazaar but with out a specific page turning up there is a lot of searching to do in this topic. Google pulls up nothing I found useful for S&B102 TVC.

Sorry about the lame questions as I would image you prefer technical ones that can improve things or correct them

Percyaudio.com sells Cardas wire as well. That's the Vampire wire I meant.

S&B102 TVC stands for transformer based volume attenuator; since I build them regularly, I have lots of cutoffs I'm using for signal wiring.

The balanced (and buffered) version will be available at some future time as well.

I'm also working on an integrated with TVC front and balanced GC ouput.

I have been looking over Plitron's transformers. Could I get a little help selecting one? I figured on going with a 300-400va for 8 ohm speakers (I really can not see myself ever having 4 ohm speakers). Based on a price of a 300va on Mad About Sound I assume some where under $50 is reasonible?

I have been looking on Plitron's website but I am not sure how decipher all of the specifications.

$48 US..... I just figured I should buy from some where based in the USA.

Oh yeah could I just get a couple optional specifications? Who manufactures good ones? How good does it need to be? I can get a lot of electronic stuff, but most the time it is not audio worthy. I can get 40% off of stuff from Newark and similiar prices off with other major industrial dealers.
