Benefit of shielded ac wire? Any downside?
@cleeds . It is standard wire. I just braided it myself. It is a double run, normal wire for in wall use twisted in starquad. Pitch twist about 4 inch. It took a while for 15m. A good foundation for my system. Direct connection to my star wired di... 
Benefit of shielded ac wire? Any downside?
I recently moved to a new house. I have wired my system from the breaker panel with starquad 12 awg solid core wire direct to my distribution block. And a 10 awg , counter rotating, earth wire. Starquad has the advantage that it is a selfshielding... 
Dynamic range - effect on different speaker cables - even very high quality ones
"Cables may get over saturated with sound". The only thing I can think off is that the current can be too high for the given AWG and the dielectric is getting overcharged and starts compressing. Is the cable getting warm? The cable dielectric can ...

EM busters
I agree with the OP. RFI hunting and EMI reduction is key for good sound. A big step was with the JSSG 360 tweak from the computer audiophile website around DC cabling, Ethernet, usb and interconnects.XLR, RCA, HDMI caps were also closing a pathwa... 
Duelund conversion to DIY Helix Geometry Cabling
I use a dissected eupen GNLM for neutral and earth. They both have emc/ferrit powder around their tinned strands that acts as a rfi filter for the live wire. It really works. No stray voltages, no rfi, low induction. Pitch black background and oom...

Is Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF) sexist?
Off course it is sexist. Every difference between people can have a positive or negative connotation (all in the eye of the beholder). I like being a sexist between the sheets. 😜 But for audio... I don’t care and the stereo doesn’t care either.It ...

Try the Townshend f1 fractal interconnect, very holographic
