Stranded, but do be sure to tin the ends
first before you shape them to purpose.

I prefer tin/silver or tin/copper/sliver.
with a squeeze bottle of corrosive water
soluble flux. Yes, corrosive!

I prefer Kester 60/40 when drowning the
finished board in water is not an option.
The old fashioned multicore tree sap flux
is reliable, if messy...

Never use pure tin (SN100), its crap...
Never "no clean flux", crap on crap...

Keep solvents and alcohol away from
enameled wires, especially inductors.
Most water soluble fluxes have alcohol
in the flux itself. This might be the one
case where you would use a "no clean"...

I like Sn62 solder, 2% silver. Ersin Multicore is my favorite brand, mostly because I think their flux works better than Kester's. Radio Shack solder has particularly crummy flux.

"When solder melts and forms a joint between two metal surfaces, it actually forms a metallurgical bond by chemically reacting with the other metal surfaces. A good bond requires two things, a solder that is metallurgically compatible with the metals being bonded and good metal surfaces, free of oxides, dust, and grime that prevent good bonding. Grime and dust can easily be removed by cleaning or prevented with good storage techniques. Oxides, on the other hand need another approach.Oxides form on almost all metals when oxygen reacts with the metal. On iron, oxidation is commonly called rust, but it happens to tin, aluminum, copper, silver, and nearly every metal used in electronics. Oxides make soldering much more difficult or even impossible, preventing a metallurgical bond with the solder. Oxidization happens all of the time, but happens much faster at higher temperatures, like when soldering Flux cleans metal surfaces and reacts with the oxide layer, leaving a surface primed for a good solder bond. Flux remains on the surface of the metal while soldering which prevents additional oxides from forming due to the high heat of soldering.For many applications, the flux included in the core of the solder wire is sufficient. However, there are several applications where additional flux is extremely beneficial, such as surface mount soldering and desoldering. In all cases, the best flux to use is the least acidic (least aggressive) flux that will work on the oxide on the components and result in a good solder bond."

Like always intellectual understanding is far from put hands on.
Kenpeter thanks one +up
i try it experiment on free pcb at home

for Zen Mod
With today nanotechnology we never now i joke
but you are absolutely right 0,1mm solid core
for input audio silvered copper not pure silver
why if be not big buck and short?
Its about copper conductivity and musicality of materials?
Silvered protect against corosion?

yup

silver against corosion

tiny dia for sound

find screened Belden UTP cable - there is plenty of proper 0.1mm in outer screen

1m is enough for good

Hi Mr dB
http://stores.acrosales.com/catalog/rosincore-EN.pdf
its look interesting and work with Ersin give clear
bright and solid fusion points.
Thanks for share
