The first problem with SPDIF is the horrible RCA connector, this realy limits the design possibilities.
Back soon, on this course so I've goto do some work!

krajnc, did you try making these cables without the ground wire? i.e. not using a wire but a hollow tube or something?
also, can you please share your impressions basing on your experience?

I made some interconnections, not tested yet,
it is ok to use hollow tube, if you have power connector with two wires,
drain wires are not part of helical interlacing elements,
but will help to physically ties conductors

Why power cables and speaker cables use dual helix geometry(two drain wires/cores) but signal cables use single helix geometry?
