RE: 4N Pure Silver Dead Soft Wire Project

If I were a solid core silver rca interconnect cable fan vs. a solid core copper rca interconnect cable fan for line-level analog cable applications, I'm sure I would like to try cotton tubing as a dielectric.

While a balanced digital signal is a different animal than a balanced line-level signal, both require a twisted pair in order function properly with balanced I/O circuitry. As for cotton tubing being absolutely better than a very thin hand-built layer of PTFE Teflon tape, I prefer a minimal-mass, very thin PTFE Teflon tape layer approach for a tightly-twisted pair, and I doubt there would be a profound difference from an audible dielectric absorption POV. You may like to try VH Audio's AirLok insulated OCC copper wire to hear how good a minimal-mass cellular FEP Teflon dielectric can sound.

BTW, what make/model connector is your Paul Speltz cable(s) terminated with?
