Not the way I understood the intention. One length of cable is +, another length of cable is -, don't use the shield.

Slowly, but surely assembling/upgrading this room.
Just put a new rack together....a few more pics.

The pro-ject is upstairs in the 2-ch rig with the LSi's. I have a vintage sony TT in the sda rig right now.
Here is a pic of the Pro-Ject 2.9 before I put the Grado Gold on it.
