RE: DIY interconnects with DH Labs White Lightning Cable

One point I would make is that all three of the cables you have mentioned use different conductors for the Pos and Neg legs of the cable. The signal is a voltage potential between the two conductors so it makes sense to me that the two conductors should be identical. Those cables use a wire for the positive conductor and use the braided shield for the negative. Those two conductors have very different electrical characteristics. I just don't see why most cable manufacturers don't recognise this fact. I notice that DH Labs Pro Studio cables are constructed as I suggest. There are two identical conductors within the cable and there is also a shield. Anyway, thanks for bringing the DH Labs cables to my attention. I am going to make a pair of cables using the Pro Studio.
