CDs/LPs/Lossless/DVDs/Bluray/Games / Re: Audiophile Demo Disk

I have heard very good sounding CDs used dealers as demo discs. These were clearly labelled not for sale. I think this is unfair as the music contained therein was out of this world. That I would spend the last penny I have to lay my hands on it.
It would be a good idea if guys knowledgeable with music can indeed compile such discs for public consumption if it's within parameters of the 'law'
I can't wait...

I think it is a great idea. Looking at the copper pipes outside my house - to the outside taps there still has not formed any verdigris on them. They do go dull and more brown in colour so I think they will look good for a long time inside your room and even if they go brown it is still very much in the steam punk theme.

Best you shorten the length of all your cables there is obviously a delay in the music getting to your speakers.

Copper will work. I have done this many times. It is useless to polish and use clear lacquer from a rattle can. You will spend about a day polishing one length of 20mm pipe and the clear lacquer will last about 10 months and then flake off. You need to coat it with very good automotive clear coat otherwise you are wasting your time.

Also prevent any short bends as you cannot feed the wires through these if you have two or more. Use a bending spring and pipe bender to create long radius bends.

No need to solder the pieces together. Once a clear coat has been applied to the pipes, you will have a press fit into the solder joining pieces.

Do not saw the pipes to length. Use a quality pipe cutter and expand the flattened inside lip with smooth rod. An old 4x4 shock's shaft works great.

Have fun!
Thanks for the tips
