Advice on Jumper cables

Recommended Posts

This is not exactly computer audio but need some advice on Jumper cables at a reasonable cost. I am not a DIY guy but I would like to upgrade the standard jumper clips that came from the speaker manufacturer. Much appreciate any input from the jumper cable gurus out there.

Most cable manufactures make or can make jumpers. Otherwise Cardas makes some solid copper ones available at Parts Connexion.

DIY my own jumpers with multiple runs of teflon insulated, solid core, 24 awg silver wire. But when Nordost released the "Norse" series jumpers I got a set of them-seeing as I am a dedicated Nordost Homeboy!

Anyway, the Norse series are pretty reasonable in price, and offer excellent performance.

I bought some solid silver wire (uninsulated), only need about 4 inches for each jumper to connect the terminals.


18AGW or 1mm should do fine, checkout homegrownaudio.com.
