    if youre making these yourself, my advice would be to try it first without the screen,

    adding a screen can dull the sound a bit. I used to make cables when I worked for LFD, and most of our cables were unshielded.

    I'll buy some of this of cable and give it a listen.

    But I will probably strip out the two wires , twist them, then use spiralwrap, and then braid.

    That would be good, and cheap,

    and regarding directionality, my boss always said its better to keep the wires flowing the same way that it was strewn off the reel when the cable was made.

    so at LFD that's what we did,

    probably doesn't make any difference but hey

    But more expensive than just the cable, which is already twisted?

    That was my conclusion as well, just lost a bit of the sparkle and transparency when the screen was connected. I have a bit of a snake pit of cables which caused interference, otherwise I would have left the screen disconnected.

    Wont be expensive, and what's outside the cable does make a difference, I might even try using ptfe sleeving, that was something we did at LFD on some interconnect cables.

    This hifi lark can get a bit geeky at times
