    Where can you buy Gotham GAC-1 UltraPro in unterminated lengths? Never seen it in the UK

    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    To the other cables you have suggested that are available 'off the drum', I would add (amongst others)

    RG 58C/U, or RG 58C/U-01
    RG 59C/U (particularly for digital interconnects)
    RG 174
    RG 223
    URM70 (also for digital)
    Gotham GAC-1
    Gotham GAC-2 (for balanced interconnects)
    Van Damme XKR
    Ive tried various configs of RG316/u and it sounded best that way. I intend to try doubling up the amounts again when I get some more. The RG316/u I bought used silver plated, copper clad steel as conductor.

    At audio frequencies the 'skin effect' doesn't have much of an effect, especially with a conductor diameter as small as that of RG316, so the current density is virtually constant across the diameter of the centre conductor. That is, virtually all of the current flows through the steel core and very, very little of it flows in the silver plate and copper cladding.

    Presumably because this is how one of the UK's bedroom manufacturers chooses to use it. However, as you say, the shield is actually a better conductor at audio frequencies.

    If the OP buys some, he can try it a few ways and stick with the config he likes best. I used my ears and I'm happy with the results. YMMV.

    I'll let you know when I get final costs for currency conversion and delivery.

    How much did you want Oliver?
