The braided shield would need to be grounded to (-) terminal of the I.C. to be effective at shielding. Preferably at the source end only.
Freak out...Far out...In out....
I'm aware of that but any opinions on the overall idea or should I work on either a purpose built DIY phono cable or store bought model?
BTW, the VH Audio V-Quad is said to provide hum-free performance without a braided shield for a phono-level application. Even though the cross-connected star quad geometry of the V-Quad is a self-shielding design, I'm still surprised to hear that it does not require a braided shield for a phono-level turntable application. Another option that may help to reduce hum is the use of a shielded power cord for the TT motor.
