L1 Powerstand connectors and B2 Bass Bin connectors
I have read several posts about cable issues with cores breaking at the plug point on B2 Bass bin and other places.
On many occasions I have encouraged folk to change the style of connector - as in my view the standard Neutrik connector does encourage signal breaks in the manner in which we use them.
Straight connectors coming up from the Powerstand produces large loops of cable - which put a bend stress point on the few millimetres entering the Neutrik plug. Over time the copper cores can break.
In addition, cables sticking straight up from the Paowerstand also represent a trip hazard -- which if tripped on can also damage the cables.
I have changed all my Neutrik B2 bin cable connectors to right angle connectors.
Unfortunately - at the Powerstand end they turn to a direction I'd prefer they didn't but they still perform and make less of a hazard. I'd love to turn the socket 180 and have it face the rear end instead.
I am now changing the IEC mains plug to a right angle - leaving the only cable to stick up and weaken itself being the Ethercon - I can't find a right angle plug...
On the B2 bin - the right angle Neutrik now hangs the cable downwards producing zero stress point and a much reduced trip hazard.
Here are some pictures to demonstrate;
Does anyone agree with me?
