Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

1. I doubt you will need any shielding. I have used unshielded wiring for my tonearm wires for years with no hum whatsoever (and with a 0.25mv MC cartridge). I would definitely try the wires first without shielding and only resort to shielding if there is hum. In my experience, unshielded wires sound better.

2. I recommend you try something other than V-Twist wire. I have some V-Twist interconnects and I just don't find the sound to be very good. Sure, it checks the boxes on the audiophile evaluation list (smooth tonal balance, decent detail, decent dynamics) but it always sounds synthetic or artificial as opposed to natural and musical. I have tried several RCA plugs all of which sound different but nothing so far makes me want to leave them in the system. By the way, V-Twist needs lots of hours to break in fully. Mine have over 1000 hours.
