    I thought skin effect effects thicker cables more as they get thicker? hi freq travelling on outside of cable

    Skin effect is the tendency of an alternating electric current (AC) to become distributed within a conductor such that the current density is largest near the surface of the conductor, and decreases with greater depths in the conductor. The electric current flows mainly at the "skin" of the conductor, between the outer surface and a level called the skin depth. The skin effect causes the effective resistance of the conductor to increase at higher frequencies where the skin depth is smaller, thus reducing the effective cross-section of the conductor. The skin effect is due to opposing eddy currents induced by the changing magnetic field resulting from the alternating current. At 60 Hz in copper, the skin depth is about 8.5 mm. At high frequencies the skin depth becomes much smaller. Increased AC resistance due to the skin effect can be mitigated by using specially woven litz wire.

    it looks rather tasty if you read all the burb,are you going to try it as an interconnect ?

    Yes, Of course!

    However, I need a massive XLR plug to get three cores in.

    Its 5mm thick so needing 3 cores is going to make it an expensive cable and then the plugs are gonna be about the same. Think I quoted 400ish recently to an interested party.

    Is skin effect a factor at audio frequencies?

    Yes it does. It still doesn't matter though.

    My understanding is that it is all about impedance. Skin effect increase impedance and we don't want high impedance. The higher the frequency the higher the impedance. So it is more of a problem at high frequencies. At audio frequencies it only adds a tiny amount of impedance that is swamped by the impedance of the amplifier, the wire itself and the loudspeakers. You're never going to be able to distinguish the tiny contribution it is making.
