I am making a pair of DIY interconnect cables with 22awg silver plated wire. My model is Mark's DIY cable project using pure silver wire. My question is regarding the Ferrite Core 1/4" Cord Noise Suppressor.

I've read some opinions that those suppressors can attenuate the treble response.

Anyone have an opinion on Ferrite Core Cord Noise Suppressors?

No, I don't think that it does. However, I would suggest that you use types that snap on. That way you can remove it if you don't like it.

Mark's diy silver audio cables design works well with 30AWG silver plated wire wrap.

Cheers

Hmmm, not unless "treble" on your system begins at 30MHz ;)

If you're talking bead core, the highest permeability will add all of 250 ohms or so reactance at 100MHz, so I doubt it.

Cheers!

Thanks for your reassuring input.

>>>Mark's diy silver audio cables design works well with 30AWG silver plated wire wrap.<<<

30AWG? Do you think my silver plated 22AWG wire is too heavy?

Regards...jim

I build my RCA cables with 22 to 30AWG wire. I personally prefer 28AWG as 30 is quite delicate. You are ok at 22AWG. Mark used 0.7mm which is closer to about 21AWG.
