FYI - I just found two more sources for coaxial cables

There are plenty of cables available on Tao Bao as well, there's a decent one that's made from Furutech FX-Alpha-Ag and we've gotta pick the right option Hicon 3.5四节- ATL RCA 15cm

Since those sellers don't really ship internationally, we could also ask Ghent to make something similar to his E06 but not quite the same

Simply inform Ghent that's gotta be TRRS (instead of TS) as explained below

For DIY cables, Canare L-5.5CUHD could be a great choice

Thanks much for the pointers.

The special order Ghent looks promising and the price sure is right.

Much appreciated. 👍
