Thanks. Been doing myself all the cables I use on my home hifi system, but I have little to no experience making cables for portable audio. I had some fun, though. I am not worried about the twisting rate of this cable; for this distance, capacitance and interference don't bother me. My objectives were that it looked good, was tough and had a little bit of stiffness to help hold the dap and amp together. I think it does a good job in those regards.
