A Shielded Duelund DCA20GA Interconnect for the Weekend! Updates!

I’ve been wanting to try the Duelund DCA20GA tinned-copper tone-wire as a shielded interconnect between my Intact Audio SUT and vintage McIntosh MX110Z tuner-preamplifier for a while now.

Yesterday after I rewired the high-frequency circuits of my Westminster’s Duelund CAST crossovers with the Duelund DCA20GA tinned-copper tone wire, I was so excited by the results that I decided I wanted to rewire the low-frequency circuits too. It was spur of the moment decision to rewire my crossovers, so I didn’t precondition any of the […]
