RE: They are all pretty good- and they all have problems

"such a low impedance that the inductance and capacitance of the cable just doesn't play a role."

Hmmmm, I wonder what that would be? Apparently 100 ohms is too high if I am to ascribe my experiences to that factor and that seems to be the common Zo of the things I have, most of which are getting old and should be about ready to graduate from "old junk" into "desirable vintage".

A voltage source driving a terminated cable should be good but I went the other way and built up the outputs to 300ohms and use terminated open air lines. Kludgy but sounds good.

Why on earth would any cable cost or be worth $24,000? I guess we all have our bullshit limit...
