Copper Star mains cable kit for DIY assembly.
The ‘Copper Star’ SF DIY mains cable takes 20-30 mins to make, and saves you £35.00 off our identical manufactured version. The kit of parts includes detailed instructions. The cable and sleeving are cut to length, so all you have to do is strip the cable to length, slip on the sleeving and fit the two plugs (see photo showing the parts).
The fine-polished unplated Copper Star DIY cable kit uses our silicon rubber 3 x 1.5mm copper cable, that we know offers a great sound, together with the MS HD Power fine-polished UK 13A plug (with 13A fuse fitted) and fine polished IEC plug at the other end of the cable. The kit can be bought in 0.5m increments, from 1m up to 4m and then 5m to 10m in one metre increments.
This is our cheapest mains cable option in the DIY Star range and you may ask why one would buy a more expensive plated plug option? The only advantage to plating is to be assured of a perfect electrical connection at all times because Gold and Rhodium do not oxidise. They do also impose their own ‘sound’ quality as well in some small way. However, if you are willing to clean the oxidisation off the polished unplated copper pins, or simply pull out and re-insert 4-6 times a year, unplated pins offer as good if not better mains power delivery and sound quality improvement as the plated options.
As you can see from the photographs, when made up this DIY cable kit looks like a professionally manufactured cable, and you have saved some cash as well!
If you are unsure about making this cable up yourself and want this quality cable already made up, we do sell it assembled in the power cable section.

- MS HD Power MS-328 13A Gigantic UK Plug
