Duelund shielding


I have some Duelund dual DCA12GA on order for speaker cable.  I'm seeking a richer, warmer tone and this unique cable is well recommended.  I am wondering though if anyone who is using it has gone to the effort of shielding it.

As far as I can tell, the cable is tinned copper and only wrapped in cotton.  There is no shielding.  I've also noticed that vendors such as Audiolund are repackaging it with added shielding.

Has anyone tried buying a metal braiding and shielded the raw cable themselves?  Did it improve the sound?

Because the shield is being used as a shield only - I run a separate, third wire for ground that is connected at both ends.

Ah ok @mitch2 so it is electrically equivalent to tying the shield to the ground, just it is not pin-1 but tied to another place on the devices?
