From what I understand, it is somewhere between the standard cable and the double Helix. So it's using multiple gauges wires but the interlacing is that of the standard cable, not the painful double helix process...
Also, as I mentioned, the XLR terminations are not standard and cost quite a bit. I happened to be very happy with the same plugs for my Edition 9 recable (APS v3) so wanted the same plugs for this cable.
From another thread, I think we have the answer. I should add that Fidelity Audio is now called Warren Audio, which Rick changed to after a few people had serious issues with his cables.
How in God's name do you start up a cable company if you can't even ****ing solder?
