4N Pure Silver Dead Soft Wire Project

Since I have an available set of platinum-plated with Teflon dielectric EIZZ XLR connectors, my obsessive quest to build high-performance home-brew AES/EBU digital cables continues unabated. This time taking the process another step further by implementing uninsulated 4N 99.99% pure silver dead soft solid core wire hand-wrapped with PTFE Teflon tape as a DIY insulation. This will be as close as it gets to a from-scratch DIY cable project that I've attempted. I plan to use very thin (typical white colored) PTFE Teflon tape to wrap each polarity of a pair of 18 AWG solid core 4N pure dead soft silver wires, then use a heavy duty thick (dark gray colored) PTFE Teflon tape to wrap the wires after carefully building a short-length 0.5 meter tightly-twisted pair, covered with Techflex sleeving to protect the vulnerable PTFE Teflon tape wrap jacket. I plan to post an AA report sometime down the road.
