It is difficult to get Belden cable here. So, I use a cheap local coax cable equivalent to Belden 1506A.

Yes, I have experience with 0.6 mm pure copper strand and of normal insulation material, probably PVC or similar. For me, I prefer the silver-plated and Teflon-isulated, which offers somewhat brighter upper frequency sound.

I equally like the interconnects made of the coax cable and the twisted two lines with the siver-coated and Teflon-insulated.

Inside amps, I used 10mm-dia tin-plated wire, naked, for p2p wiring. Between wires, I give enough air space, considering the dielectrics and to reduce capacitance. If you look over inside my amps, you might laugh. Haha... I am a pure DIYer.

How big are your parts then?

You, you...

Parts are micro-small.
Only the wires are very thick.
The thicker...the better...the thick...
You know? Our 10mm is your 1 mm. Just different culture.

JH, glad you have tried different materials.
I reckon/agree that teflon gives a brighter/livelier HF sound but I find it unnatural and fatigueing.
Pvc gives a duller telephone sound but I prefer that, but best is no insulation ime.
Bernards use of close twisted wires with very thin enamel dielectric sounds to me like it ought to be very good - even better I reckon is to make them the non directional Star Quad setup I propose.

"Inside amps, I used 10mm-dia tin-plated wire, naked, for p2p wiring ..... you might laugh......"
Hey, I'd be seriously impressed.
