I’ve got some more information for you on the upcoming Duelund DCA12GA tinned-copper tone-wire!

The DCA12GA raw tinned-copper wire.

In the photo above you can see the raw tinned-copper wire used in the DCA12GA tinned-copper tone-wire.

The new DCA12GA will use 65 strands of 0.25mm tinned-copper wires versus the 26 strands of 0.25mm tinned-copper strands used in the DCA16GA.

The first kilometer of DCA12GA being pulled through the oil impregnation equipment.

Frederik told me that the DCA12GA uses the exact same oil-soaked and baked cotton dielectric (above).

The new DCA12GA is so heavy Frederik had to have new equipment constructed to perform the oil-soaking step!

Above is a short movie of DCA12GA being fed into the oil-impregnator.

Frederik says he plans to have the new DCA12GA wire finished by next week, and then it will be shipping to Parts ConneXion.

Parts ConneXion will have exclusive distribution of the DCA12GA for the first 3-4 months after its release.

Chris at Parts ConneXion told me he hopes to have the DCA12GA in stock by Friday, April 21st, so they can start filling orders the last week of April.

You can pre-order now, here, and Parts ConneXion will offer the DCA12GA at a special introductory pricing of $16.99/meter, which after the exclusivity period will go to  $19.50/meter. The MSRP Retail List Price of the DCA12GA is $22.95/meter.

I’ll let you know more information as I receive it!


I want to thank all of you who have donated to help me recover Jeff’s Place from the recent hacking event. Thank you so much!

I appreciate all your encouragement, advice, and donations, it really helps!

I’ve placed a PayPal donation button above the comments section, and if you feel like you would like to donate to keep Jeff’s Place secure and up & running, I’d really appreciate it!

I am fortunate that I was able to get Jeff’s Place back up quickly, and it looks like most or all the content has been recovered, thankfully. If you see anything that looks amiss let me know!

I’m working through adding in security software and plugins, backup strategies, and other security techniques that have been recommended to me in order minimize the risk of a similar hack happening again.


As always, thanks for stopping by, and may the tone be with you!

  1. Thanks for these updates… Looking forward to trying out this cable.

  2. I preordered some DCA12GA for trying in place of my DCA16GA speaker cables between amps and Analysis Audio Epsilon.

  3. 25m of DCA 12GA came in today. I whipped up a quick pair of bi-wire cables to go between my Pass XA30.8 amp and Selah Tempestra Extreme speakers (~86db efficiency). They will obviously have to break in for a while before I can evaluate them, but they already sound as good as the much more expensive speaker cables they replaced. Thank you Jeff!

    • Hi Todd,

      Keep me posted on your impressions of the DCA12GA, you are the first person I know of who has listened to it!

      It’ll be a while before I get some and can give it a listen, so appreciate any insights you can share!

      Kind regards,


      • I’ve been running them in for a couple days. Curiously, I haven’t really noticed too much of a break-in change during this period. My initial impressions are that the sound is “Rubinesque” in nature. Nice sold mid bass, gorgeous vocals and very very listenable for long periods of time. The soundstage is very wide and deep, as good as speaker wire 10 times its price. The high frequencies are a bit rolled off, resulting in a loss of some detail, but making it much more easily listenable. Getting really hot in my music room these days and will probably be turning off my Class A amp and running some Class D amps to keep the heat down. I have a hunch that these will be a good match with the Class D amps.

        • Hi Todd,

          It’ll be a while before I’ll get a chance to give them a listen, so I appreciate you sharing your impressions.

          Let me know what you think after you get some more time on them!

          Kind regards,
