An answer from L-Com after all :

Our CENTER CONDUCTOR: 18 AWG. SOLID SILVER COATED COPPER. I hope that helps define your purchase.

What does this mean ? My English is not 100%. Reads like silver coated with copper ? nah ...

Hi Peter,

The windows de-activating itself is happening more frequently now...three times today.  The first time this morning it just went into its automatic pausing ritual and then twice today windows logged me off while playing music creating a thump and scaring the pants off me.  I was left there with the windows login screen and nothing to do but restart the computer because I could not login.    What I have here at the moment is a problem that is sooner or later may cause damage to the equipment.

I will research more about windows activation.  I am not game to play music right now for fear of being logged off without notice and causing a thump.  I am convinced that the automatic logout behaviour is windows software protection related and I need to find a way around it.



Hi All
I got exactly the same problem. After playing an album in unanttend mode  windows 8.1 ask foractivation. Of course windos is activated and legal. I have to say there is no internet connected and everything works in minimal operation system.
With w7 I had no problems here. Is this something that I (we) have to learn to live with it or am I doing something wrong?
Also, I am aware that such service be switched-dependent activation out.
I also believe that every time there is an activation is requested that does something with the SQ in the negative sense.

Sorry for the bad english, but fortunately there is google translate .. Cool

Kind Regards,

About 75 versus 50 ohm:
When I was checking for the adapters I found a lot of them that said they were usable for 50 and 75 ohm.
But if you look at the attached picture you can see a difference inside the plug which results in a gap between the inner insulation between the plug and the adapter when using 75 ohm wire. This will give a discontinuty in the impedance of the cable probably leading to the dreaded reflections.
But then maybe not?

No response from L-Com yet, and while it might run towards the end of their day, I'm about off as well (you know, dinner-happiness and such Wink Wink).

Hope 93 ohm will match the NOS1a ...

So Georg, notice the actually better technical possibilities for stranded cable. Still, for audio this can work out quite differently than a single core cable. So let's see !

I will try the Aircell-7 cable www.ssb.de/pdfs/6070_Aircell 7_en.pdf, because it's build from OFC copper. The cable manufacturer is manufacturing the 50 Ohm connectors too.

No news from L-Com yet.

Meanwhile I just finished a pair of 93 Ohm (RG62).
Now I'll grab a beer and will press Play. Uh-oh ...

Hi Peter,

shipping costs are? 25$ ?


Joachim, I don't know yet. We (from out part of the world) can not process the orders in full because the shipping costs can not be calculated (as how they do it). However, I could give my UPS account, and then nothing needs to be calculated and at some stage I will get the bill for it. But this will merely be something like $100 I'm afraid ...
Maybe they can ship by normal mail, but then it can take weeks ... (my shipment is due tomorrow).
