Once you go liquid, wire is so passe
Then explain why cables sound different.
A twisted pair is all one requires. The three wire Kimber is so they can weave the wire. Takes at least 3 wires to make it a weave... As for two ground. I would think Kimber actually listened to the results of two main, one ground, vs two ground and found it sounded better? Kimber offers three wire braid in bulk, and various four wire braided in bulk.
A shield is not required for most audio level signals. specially since the standard has move up to pro 2v vs the old audio gear 0.5 volts.
The one place an audiophile might need a shield is on phono cables, since that signal is pretty small voltage.
The link in my post #131 has several papers about why cables may sound different.But the quick answer is noise, interference, ringing or even oscillation.
Maybe there is a typo in my 1997 Belden catalog, because the catalog lists identical specs. Nope, my 1985 catalog has the same specs. There is an extremely small difference in the overall diameter.
The wire that made me go nuts was the Harmonic Technology pro silway 2, A guy brought one over plugged it into my system and the soundstage tightened up,the focus and clarity formed into coherent o bought one pair then a second pair later.Why it sounds so dramatic a difference beats me. so I unscrew the rca and see two 20 guage solid copper wire and two 20 guage pure solid silver wire . So that means each conductor is one copper solid insulated Teflon wire and one solid silver Teflon wire so they work together in quad twisted two different types of metal pair. The rest if a thick unknown constructed shield 9If I could only figure that one out). And locking rca. As far as I know if you don't have this wire you don't even know what your stereo really sounds like. In any case its marked me for another wire nut for life trying to find out how it even works.Id like to make one but if want any ideas heres one I just said above ,lol. now if I could only figure out what that shield is hmm?
Welcome to the strange world of audiophiledom. Where solid engineering knowledge is labeled speculation and discounted in favor of subjective evaluation. However, it shouldn't be a surprise......AC is full of members with the same thinking.Dave.
