Hello everyone, Quick question... after reading some post I decided to order some cable (Mogami 2549) and connectors (Neutrik NP3C) to build my own... so, I did and when I tried one out by inserting a RNC into a RNP... it didn't sound very good... sounded lofi and a *tiny* bit crackly... I cut the shield on one side to see if that was the problem, and yeah, that wasn't a good idea at all! ... so I thought it might be my equipment, and I tried a cheap Hosa patch cable in place of the Mogami/Neutrik and... it sounded fine... clear and everything... Now, a hosa cable should not be able to outperform these according to what I've read in other posts... do you know what's wrong? ... I'll try to re-solder tonight and see if that's the problem (I tinned the wire and tried not to make it too gobby)... Thanks in advance for any and all help!
