I continue to tinker with my main endpoint, where I do most of my listening. I have a couple queries I thought I would get people’s input on.
The first picture is my speaker wire. I have recently taken delivery of some blue jeans 10 awg cable that I have added a sheath to. I needed 4m to accommodate the distance the right speaker is from the kit, however the left speaker is basically right in front of the rack leaving me with an excess. I have read coiling wire is probably not a good idea, and to try and put into a figure of eight where you have an excess. So this is what I have tried to do. I don’t hear any hiss or similar from the speakers (unless I literally put my ear on the tweeter), so I assume the configuration works, any thoughts?
The second picture is of the top of my rack with an HD Plex 200w to the right, which powers the switch, streamer and roon core. On the left is the roon core, an i7 NUC in a fanless case. My question is in regard to the power cables. In an effort to keep the rack neat I have zip tied various power and data cables together but separate from each other. The cables you can see in the picture are loosely clipped power cables. Is this safe? Or in any way not advised? They are not tightly clipped and are in no way hot or even warm.
Anyway, any comments are very welcome.
