I learned long ago, when working live sound, how to work up cable needs and how to terminate them. These days I only make my own for stuff that is not readily available fairly cheap, such as DB25 type cable for my older Dolby Cinema Processors. The old models also require Phoenix connectors, and I like to make sure the individual wire colors match the Dolby standard when possible, so I've lopped off ends of those (DB25s, I've got boxes of them that I've picked up here and there over the years) more than a few times, to match up and terminate the Phoenix.
I got an old CP45 last fall, and hadn't had to make any new cables for about a year, so it was nice to get back to it. The processor cables take me about 2-3 days to finish.

I really can't beat Blue Jeans Cables for the other stuff I need. Their terminations are superb.
