I'm hoping removal of the PCB might make a meaningful improvement (like getting the wheels aligned and tires balanced on your sports car).
My ***plan*** is to remove the PCB, then reinstall stock cable. If all goes well (and my phones survive surgery), next step will be the Nordost cable.
gotta run -- late for work!!!
