RE: 4N Pure Silver Dead Soft Wire Project

I have fully explained in this thread as to why I don't consider a fluffy cotton, or even an oil impregnated cotton tubing without any air as part of the dielectric for that matter to be suitable for use as a precision twisted pair in order to build a proper home-brew AES/EBU digital cable, in my own personal opinion. Again, if I were interested in building a pure silver analog interconnect, or a pure silver speaker cable, cotton tubing would be on my short list of designs to consider, but not necessarily the only option to choose from. Anyone who has not experienced just how incredibly thin the typical white colored PTFE Teflon tape actually is, and the notion of only implementing a single run of PTFE Teflon tape with a half-overlap that effectively provides 2-layers of tape wrap for each wire, might like to spend a buck for a roll of it from a local hardware store to see how little dielectric mass, and thus dielectric absorption is involved in my intended design.
