Have today make samples of this stranded wires from copper UTP cable

I try them in my amp prototype

Works extremely well, especially for small signals eg input wires on Pearl 2

With respect to soldering, nobody is arguing with him. He described a methodology for cleaning leads which he introduced to techs building some product to produce product which looks prettier. He also mentioned their surprise on the procedure he showed them.

I pointed out the problems that can result, why it could be a problem, and how to solve the look issue while maintaining metallurgical integrity.

No arguing. A simple discussion of chemistry, metallurgy, process control, and visual criteria for soldering.

BTW, most large companies, especially ones where critical equipment is made, will not allow an electronics designer to simply walk into the production line and modify how the techs perform their work. There is a very good reason for that. More cases than not, problems will result down the line, either short term, or long term.

I use a Met-Cal I bought on ebay. Special circuitry maintains tip temperature under load.

Hi,

as for the initial Q of this thread:
Quote:
Best solder and wire for Pass diy amplifiers ?
Iīd say the solder and wire has to be marked īPASSedī.
Make, type and alloy donīt play any rule whatsoever ..... just let it pass.

jauu
Calvin

ps. no pun intended, just joking

Two consecutive thoughts which are mutually exclusive.

Electro magnetic interfearance will modulate/effect the signal. it will also likely become magnetized itself. It is supposed to be a ground sheild.
