    However would require other material such as graphite added to be partially effective as a conductor, with then shielding as perhaps one flamboyant use

    Mylar on its own is a excellent electrical insulator, which unfortunately does not have properties as a electromagnetic shield https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_shielding

    Yes, but the mylar used for shielding has a thin aluminum alloy metalized layer that acts as a shield.
    I think we are debating semantics.

    Hi Gran, would you recommend this cable to connect from router to a streamer?

    Cheers

    I have used this cable in that same position and it is superb. Just bought another to connect Laptop to router.

    Thanks Jimbo. I have been looking at the Chord and QED stuff but this is a fraction of the price so will give it a go.

    I have been in a similar discussion, it's not semantics.

    Mylar is a film and non-conductive, Aluminium is a foil and conductive. So the shield is the aluminium and conductive, the Mylar film is acting as a supporting carrier.

    Thumbs up Supra is positively SUPA!

    This is the best ethernet cable I've used at reasonable cost: https://www.futureshop.co.uk/supra-c...ethernet-cable

    It significantly improved both the sonic performance and stability of my music streaming, over the 'bog standard' CAT6 cable I was using previously. Never misses a beat. Highly recommended!

    I believe cat8 has all strands of the cable individually shielded?

    Probably why it's 10timez the price.
