Thanks for the experience review on these cables.
It appears the price have gone up a little, close to $20/m now. If/When I get new amps I would need longer IC's, and would certainly give those a try.
When you tried the cable unshielded, you simply didn't connect the shield to ground (at the source end) in the RCA plugs?
To use the cable unshielded, you leave the shield unconnected at BOTH ends. I cut the shield braid as close to the outer housing as possible and then wrapped it with electrical tape a couple times to prevent any remaining strands of the shield from touching the conductors.
Thanks for clarification. For the shielded version, you normally wouldn't connect the shield to ground at the input end RCA plug no?
I was also going to ask about comparisons to the Duelund wire, as both are tin plated copper strands.
For the shielded version, you connect the shield to ground at one end only. That is usually considered the input end but the cable will work fine in either direction.
