Solid core conductor skin effect is relevant to audio.

Skin effect is relevant to audio when it comes to solid core conductors of which you are experimenting with.

Text taken from the Lavry Engineering forum link posted below:

Skin effect causes much less than 0.01dB at 20khz [for real-world analog audio cables].

Those measurements are of stranded conductors, of which the Lavry forum calls, "real world analog cables", as if solid core cables are not "real world". The matter in question is skin effect as it relates to solid core conductors for audio purposes, not stranded conductor cables. Furthermore, phase anomalies/audible smearing due to implementing a large gauge solid core conductor is a fundamental issue in question, not to be ignored.
