When having a mess of power wires like you got there ( no disrespect, I make the same mess or worse when prototyping), you may benefit from running shielded signal wires. Remember to only connect the shield in one end.

It's overkill

Go see any musicians shop and buy some micrphone cable or the like, or just salvage some from an old pair of headphones....

That is what i told him to do, we have been talking on line for the last fwe months and he asked for some help, however Peter insisted that it is not necessary.

it would cost no more than 5$ for mic cable

The stuff that he has pointed out from ebay, is what i use in my pre-amp's and aleph's and it works good, i even use it for other things like cables and speaker wire, best stuff i have yet.

Hi Dougie085,
Three wire mic cord is perfect. You know, for XLR connectors. Use one wire for ground, the other is hot and the shield is just a drain, grounded at one end only. If your grounding system is different, then do not use the second conductor as a ground.

Teflon anything is a pain to work with.

Well, since overkill included the words teflon and wire in the same sentence. It is not nice to work with (I belive I had the "pleasure" of working with this exact type at BAF07), and when I say not nice I really mean it, nasty stuff!

Go buy a pair of el-cheapo earphones, salvage the wire and chuck out the rest.
