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

    75 ohm impedance, not resistance. Has nothing to do with the resistance of the center conductor, which is simply copper conductor of a certain gauge size. The conductor doesn't have "75 ohms" of resistance--how could it--you haven't told the cable how long you need it to be.

    The shielding probably isn't all that important. Can't hurt, though. Look at what shielding did for the transformer of the AI-1 interconnect, and it's Dreadnought cousins.

    Damned fine performance/dollar ratio.

    Could be. I can't argue against it.

    Why do none of the boutique cable manufacturers list the RCL values of their cables? RCL + noise = the "sonic signature" of a cable in a given system. There is no voodoo in cables, there are differences in R, C, or L, and there are differences in the noise of a cable. Yet nobody making cables wants to talk science. They want to talk voodoo.

    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.
