I was going to make a desktop cable for the Alpha Dogs and was considering venturing into the Tempo Electric's solid cord with over-sized Teflon. I was going to order different Teflon that would still be over-sized but smaller ID/OD - Something like ID:2mm OD: 4mm. To make it cheaper, I did plan on using copper grounds. Doing unbalanced to begin with. I'm assuming the dielectric of the ground wouldn't really matter, yeah? Cause I thought it would look cool to spiral some color of Mogami or Canare grounds around the outside of the Teflon and finished it all off with some Techflex.
Would it be better to keep the ground further separated rather than my intended plan? I had considered placing a sleeving around the Teflon and then running the ground around that.
Not that worried about it breaking as this is an experiment. Whatever the results are, so be it. That said, I'd like to implement the design of the cable for maximum theoretical benefits, and then make adjustments from there. Thoughts?
One final question pertaining to the design of Tempo Electric's cable/interconnect style. They quote studies about air dielectric and it's benefits and how over-sized Teflon mimics those benefits (for the most part). Then they use heat shrink at each end for obvious reasons. That comes in contact with the wire, albeit for only a short length of the wire, but still is a constant on the wire during operation. Isn't that almost purpose defeating? (Not sure, that's why I'm asking).
