Default You all do know

You all do know that some guy is going to build some of these things and sell them to the general audio public for 500 dollars a pop. I hate what has happened to my audio sport in the last 30 years in the USA. No schematics, no real information from manufactures just mumbo jumbo jargon.
It used to be that you couldn't sell audio equipment without a schematic... no one would buy it.
Geezz if I were going to spend kilobucks on an amp I would at least like to know what the hexx I.m buying.
End of todays rant...

@lf,

Your pictures show the correct use of the loops, as I understand it. Everyone should experiment with alternate usage and materials.

For the placement of the shrink wrap tube I usualy move the end pieces back from the wire ends. I do not imagine that it makes any difference with the results.

I'd like to add my thanks to @lf.

But, I didn't picture it quite the way you did. From bud's picture in post#40, it showed a length of litz wire exactly

as in your first diagram, (here's where we differ), Instead of forming it into an open loop, as you did, and Simon did in

his picture, I thought Bud folded it tightly in half. Then instead of placing the shrink wrap as you have shown, he used

the three pieces (one at each end , and one in the middle ) to bind the folded wire together, then slid it into a cotton

shoelace. His picture only shows the tinned wire protruding from one end of the cotton lace.

I'll be very interested to hear Buds' thoughts. Perhaps they're both right.

Well, Bud's thoughts beat me to the punch by a minute.

And it looks like my interpretation was wrong. So I'm especially grateful that it's been cleared up.

My placement of the plastic , when the wire loop is to be put into a cotton sleeve, is as you describe, but I do not put the plastic tube around both wires.

If you imagine a loop of wire that is squeezed down to two parallel portions, one portion has two pieces of plastic, with a space left between them just big enough that the third piece of plastic, on the other leg, will fit into that gap. This is only done to make the package look less lumpy. It is not important to the sonic event.... or, at least I don't think it is important.

Thanks for the drawings @lf, they will help many silent investigators of this foolish but interesting event actually try it out. And thanks to Phil for providing a quick and easy way to make a good enough wire bundle..

Bud
