Originally posted by Pio2001 When I was experimenting on this, I found differences for CD Playback, but not for Vinyl playback. I think the sound of vinyl was not accurate enough to be affected by the cable quality.
Originally posted by Pio2001 Are you saying your cable is not shielded In that case, change it at once
Originally posted by fewtch Not only that, but those expensive cables are "directional" (probably something to do with molecular alignments in the wiring)
Originally posted by Case You do know that this is BS. The direction of the cable has no effect on the signal going through.
Despite an increasing tendency for manufacturers to mark cables directionally, no evidence was foundunder controlled conditions to support the notion that speaker cables are directional. It was found, onthe other hand, that merely laying a cable diffe rently could affect the inductance and capacitance.
Originally posted by fewtch Why not? It depends on the material the cable is made of.
all I found was this. I find it amusing
When biwiring, the two cables used must either be identical, or have essentially identical designs. If the cables have different inductance or capacitance, they will cause different amounts of phase shift.

Wow ! At last we know WHY silver is used in cables
