Why don't you ask Paul Speltz about the two conductor thingy?

I've got some and used them for a long while. After hearing Teo cables but baulking at the price I went on a mission to find something that out performed the Anticable XLRs and did most of what the Teos do. I came up short, the only cable I came across that offered a little more than the Anticable in my system was a top of the range Siltech at mega money and the owner admitted he'd struggle to pick between them blind.
None of the midprice options (and still expensive)like Supra/Siltech/Audio Note offered the transparency of the Anticables. Theres plenty of good stuff out there but the the Anticable offer is genuinely good compared to very expensive cables ime
Thanks for sharing your thoughts/experience on the Speltz XLRs. One last set of questions. Where did you find them most beneficial in your system? From Source to Preamp or Preamp to Amp? Normally I like to use the same brand of cable in the whole signal chain but I'm operating on a cut budget now and only have funds for 1 set of Morrow XLRs now.
My understanding is that XLR is such a leap over RCA (signal quality, especially over longer cable runs) that even a decent but budget XLR will bring advantages over a high-end RCA.
The problem is that most vendors do not include XLR interconnections on their gear. i.e., the audio industry is dragging it's past behind it similar to a dinosaur dragging its tail. I've tried to go XLR, but even my high-end Ayon integrated has only 1 XLR and several RCA connections! My 3 month old Raven amp has no XLR connections. Bummer. Take a look at the coveted Atma-Sphere line: XLR XLR XLR.
