Yeah, but get them too close and you'll have far too much capacitance for some amps, which can result in instability and well, maybe some not so great things happening to your amp! IMO, you're better off with them separated by at least a few inches and then you'll get the single-wire inductance based on the dims of the foil. I will refrain from offering any opinion on this. I'm just posting to keep folks from destroying amps.
Speedskater offers good advice. These cables will act like excellent antennas. In fact if you wanted on purpose to create an antenna in order to pick up stray signals and emi noise you probably couldn’t do better than these cables. So you should be very careful in locating and routing them based on what other cables, power supplies, and other electrical noise sources are nearby.
What is the width of the cable? I use a ARC tube amp with negative and 4 and 8 ohm posts fairly close together.
Here are the Fidelium Cables hooked up to GoldenEar Triton Reference speakers and Pass Labs INT 250 amp.
Jeffrey Smith's patent application provides useful background to the design and hints at the alloy that he uses. some of the possible alloys include lead so anyone willing to buy a lead paint test kit should be able to confirm or rule out those alloys. The basic idea behind the invention is that by using LOWER conductivity than copper metals propagation velocities can be made to be uniform across the audio band; i.e., no phase shift within the cable as a function of frequency. I would like to try a pair but I have never spent over $100 for cables so $1000 is a big jump up rather than down for me. And my bank account is still recovering from new amps.
