Actually my Q1 is related to Q2. In Q1, since dielectrics are said to be not perfectly linear and can distort the signal (eventually sound I assume), I don’t know if the thickness of the dielectrics play a part in the degree of this nonlinearity (or sound distortion)?
Re A2: “Depends. Using a thinner dielectric clearly reduces the bulk effect of the insulation (i.e. its contribution to increased capacitance). Whether this would ultimately lead to lower overall distortion will depend on the nature of the distortion between the dielectric used for the thicker insulation and the one used for the thinner.“
In the A2, it seems that because of increased (due to thinner dielectric) or decreased (thicker dielectric) capacitance, it brings different degree of distortion. How about the thickness if the same dielectric is used for both the cables (thicker dielectric & thinner dielectric)?
(p.s. sorry for the not-so-well organised questions)
