Look at the end of my cable measurements & impressions post: http://www.head-fi.org/t/623013/new-philips-fidelio-x1/4320#post_10475263
lead resistance isn when you ground both the red and black meter cable? mine is 0.8.
ground to ground - 1.8 ohms
ground to terminal 1 loop - 1.7 ohms
ground to terminal 2 loop - 1.8 ohms
ground - terminal 1 through left driver - 35.0 ohms
ground - terminal 2 through right driver - 34.8 ohms
I also used the sony extra cord, which has 1.4 measure -.08 = .06 omhs resistance? I can only notice a slight tightness in bass, nothing more. details and reproduction of everything from lows to high are pretty much all the same.
gold plated 1.0m auxilary 3.5m-3.5m cable, $1.80 from a mobile phone accesory shop.

ground to terminal 1 loop - 0.8 ohms
ground to terminal 2 loop - 0.7 ohms
