Unhappy Anyone found a cable with low inductance and capacitance that would be good for tone

They have a wide variety of cable. I've the GAC2-V1, and 2 pair versions for phono cables with great success. Don't get too caught up in specs, with a relatively short cable run there may be no significant losses.
Gotham should have a distributer in your area.

just putting this out there...i have not measured these cables, so I don't know....but I know they sound really really nice in my system.

I use 30 awg (hair thin) magnet wire in a helix pattern for all my interconnects. I got a 6000 (not a typo) foot roll for under 30 bucks online somewhere (with a gun to my head I can't remember). The price per one meter interconnect pair is in the pennies. And they sound much better than my store bought (30 to 40 dollar range) cables.

Again, I would be glad to measure them for you and post the results, but as of yet I have not done so.
