All that said, which factors affect SPDIF digital cable quality?
4. conductor material?
I've read that copper clad steel -now frequently used in coaxial cables- is affected by skin effect as signal travel on copper wire surface avoiding steel center wire. Is skin effect a problem also for digital transmission?
Found elsewhere on the net someone talking about unshielded digital cables based on same old cat5 (wrong impedance, I know, but he looks so happy that I wonder if...). He's quoting a 'less is more' approch by 47 Lab (Ota cables).
