emphasis on rectangular, but I get your drift ED. the main thing for me is being able to choose the conductor and termination to a better quality connection. not that i'm even that tempted as yet to get these. the best construction of course to get rid of skin effect is many very thin individually insulated wires rather than regular stranded. but you are correct that my statement/wording there left me with my pants down to a degree
note to self; do not post matter of fact statements when tired as buggery. stupid thing is, my head is spinning on all the R&D on skin effect ive been doing lately for digital cables. so many different opinions on it. I do like foil wires though.
as I stated earlier in the thread; it does appear to be a very well constructed cable for a stock cable; one of the best ive seen, so to improve on it, there is more required than just using better wire.
I do still feel its too thin though LOL, but thats just me
