Am I the only person on HeadFi that thinks having an UNSHIELDED interconnect is preposterous?
That's like running your multi-thousand-dollar HiFi rig straight from the wall socket!
For example, the Headphile XRS is bare wire, which means it's going to just soak up EMI/RMI like nobody's business, at least in theory. I don't understand how non-shielded "audiophile" cables (especially those used in computer rigs) can get rave reviews.
/me is at a loss.
EDIT: i'm not bashing Larry or his XRS cables, just using them as a point of argument, because some have commented on them as being sibilant, bright and/or "lifeless", and I wonder if this is at least partially subject to the lack of shielding.
