RE: Phono Cable Shielding.

As it turned out with the MI330 cables there is a drain wire in the cable connected at the preamp end which is in partial contact (intended or unintended I don't know) with a kind of metalized plastic sheath. Cutting the cable end and reapplying the connector to the fresh end making sure that the drain wire was in contact with the metalized plastic sheath reduced the hum enough that it was not a problem. There were no negative effects to the sound. Perhaps this was the manufacturer's proprietary method of implementing a sheath without negatively impacting the cable's performance.
