RE: US vendor

Duster, I'm wondering how you intend to get even close to the specified 110ohm characterisitc impedance?

Or do you agree with me that it's not important? (Although I'd argue that with a low resistance wire it actually *is* important, unlike a higher resistace conductor like, for example, carbon fibers)

btw, I find no mention of 20% tolerance in the AES3 spec. If the characteristic impedance mismatches the source or load impedances by any amount you will get reflections. Curious to know where this 20% tolerance figure comes from.
