    shielded audio wire instead of twisted

    Hi,

    just wondering, in the case of a preamp wiring, if there is a benefit in using 'modern' shielded audio wire instead of the traditional twisted pair for the various audio inputs, thanks.

    I usually go for twisting the wires. If I run into noise issues I use this one here: http://shop.gotham.ch/en/shop?page=shop.product_details&flypage=ilvm_fly_admirable.tpl&product_id=95&category_id=37
    This cable is also great for interconnects btw.

    For my fairly recent SP14 build I was fine using teflon insulated pure silver wires that I got from hificollective in the UK.
