I was brooding over the parts and not sure if i should use copper shielding or not. I plan to make the cable around 15cm long so i can retain some flexability.
I didn't anticipate the price difference to be so noticeable.
Crap, dude! I'm sorry. I haven't looked at this thread for a few days. I hope I'm not too late.
I actually used a third length of the same wire to ground both connectors. I then grounded the shield on just the side I'd designated as the source side and "floated" the other end of the shield. An unnecessary precaution I later learned. But just in case those expensive little wires do burn in directionally, supposedly, I've done it the "right" way. ;) Anyway, the way I did it works perfectly. No hum and it's shielded up the wazoo.
