OK see some mini techy stuff here (https://pinkfishmedia.net/forum/threads/elsdon-wonder-audio-ic-25-interconnect-cables.252069/page-2)
Hi Cliff and Gang.
As by now you may have realized I do like to experiment to learn and some time have loud bangs. The ISS1 IC-25 was very good but the conducting material and the ratio of dialectic constant was no spot on or we should say not quite right for me. Do not misunderstand me it was a better spec than cable I did in my past but I wanted more and also more flexible not a stiff rod. But not increase the cost to silly prices just for adding a Ag plated plug.
Now this next bit is going to raise a few loud voices and good on them it will prove how little they understand PSU designs. As you and other will understand we here use 220-240VAC ish, at 50Hz or even 110-120VAC at 60Hz and a few at 110V 400Hz 3 phase. So with that thought driving a load is no problem as long as the device does not require energy in short sharp burst. Because the main cable in the the standard IEC format has a large capacitance and is standard Cu material. This also has a problem at certain given rejection and absorption frequencies this can often be referred to as RFI,EMC or a bloody nightmare. So for those Radio Hams out there a 2M length is ideal for 144MHz and harmonic of that thus being a fantastic aerial (some light reading www.antenna-theory.com/tutorial/electromagnetics/capacitance.php) That is why some IEC cable have lumps in them it is normally a Ferrite based material. And at the most sensitive or radiating end of the wire. Now as some of you reading this may recall I did a bit of work for another company and wanted to solve this problem , I did work it out but making it and the very special tooling needed was silly price. And with the huge hike in price by this company and there distributor would have made it cheaper to by a Tesla car than a 1M IEC. But this left me with a problem like a fool who trusted so called friend and to be honest to honour his faith in me we produced this patent, more reading sorry. (https://patents.google.com/patent/GB2527777B/en) so this method was out for EWA and Alan. Back to chemistry we go, there are many magnetic materials but not all will bound with standard PVC and hardly any with PTFE and allow you to add a die. And in the case of the above patent a big horrid job with lots of problems. Now you have all heard of the great man Faraday (my hero) yep you guess it more reading (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Faraday) and is famous evil beast cage, ok read on. ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cage) And we also need engineers of the past (Yesterday Channel) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell's_equations) and my other Hero and not he over priced car (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Tesla). and you need to read this to complete the job. Well not quite you also need under the theory of electron drag and dielectric properties and a rare subject by my dear friend Dr David Yurth on Phitons and Torsion Fields., and that Irish Magic is not used at all sorry guys. (just some extra reading en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litz_wire)
(Lockdown boredom this will fix it honest)
OK digest this then we moved to part 2
Sorry about the Grammar and the poor spelling but some of you will understand my dyslexia and autism can be a pain, and thanks Alan and Alan for you kind patients. Love you both, or the the Daffs are doing great.
