Just like you recommended in your earlier post. Red lead positive, white lead return, the black stranded cut flush at both ends, silver shield connected at source.
If the black was intended for the drain, they could have just left it out and save money.
Everything soldered with WBT. I really like those RCAs, they solder very easy and fit that cable nicely, a little tight to get on, but they have treads inside so they kind of screws on to the cable.
I just have about 10 hours on them, so far very detailed and transparent.
Silver shield connected at source ? What does this mean. Thank you.
There is a silver plated copper braid over the wires inside. You gather up the braid at one side and attach it to the ground, and that side goes into the source. It makes the cable directional. With a power cable you'd do the same thing but attach it to the ground post on the plug, not the neutral. It's a way to provide a grounded shield. What you don't want to do is attach it at both ends. That'll create a ground loop, which can cause hum.
