I believe you will never be able to make a cable better by adding L, C or R.
Why don't you try it? It's not exactly a major investment.

I use Mogami studio cable, their best grades. I feel confident enough that it does not do hocus pocus because not developed synergistically to unknown taste in high end environment, but documented for characteristics and tested by thousands of studios. Good approach?

I've never tried them, do you have a link?

As long as you are happy that the cables have as little as possible influence on the sound, it should be good. I guess for some that will be any cable.

Depends on the task. My amp can get capacitive enough cable, ain't a Spectral or a Naim, its DIY $700 in parts, so I go 3082 in my speakers for instance, since I use Speakon too. Not heavy currents bcs they are 95dB and my amp is 20W triode so its OK it isn't heavy. Interconnects I go thin too. Has a thin line. I generally avoid much metal. Akward, non bending, and if there is something into materials, certainly less can be better. You would like the 2803 for IC because you are a cable guy, but its a pita to strip and solder.

"...delivers all the emotion of your performance without loss, coloration or exaggeration. With our Platinum cable, you'll discover the most explosive dynamics, inner detailing, and complex articulation available from your instrument - as it should be. Exhibiting the highest level of transparency, purity, and power - no matter what your style - the new Platinum cable reveals it all as you've never heard before. You'll hear greater articulation from solo passages, along with wider dynamics and frequency response."

Found this copy on some audiophool cable website. What hilarity!
