Lots of shielded cable.  Most interconnects and microphone cables are a type of shielded cable. 

Never seen nickel plated wire before.  Van Den Hul for eg rates nickel as a terrible material to use in the audio signal.  I donít know.

Thanks G...

I unfortunately would like some of those terribly rated things to try out something .. I seem to somehow have a preference for the ďbadly ratedĒ audiophile stuff ...

Just keep me in mind if you ever come across something close to that specs.

Me too, I've just been procrastinating because I'm not sure what I will need for adding subwoofers.

@Hi-Phibian , do you also do Mogami cable? I think I saw it somewhere in one of your threads.

Yes I can assist with Mogami.
Itís always worth considering that plugs and labour are similar in cost on a basic cable vs a more exotic one.  On basic cables plugs and labour can represent the bulk of the cost. 
Hence often the better cable with the same plug and labour content actually represents the better value.

For eg. Basic Mogami vs a Basic van den Hul RCA cable pair 1m.  The Van den Hul using Rean plugs (a Neutrik owned brand) I can do for R450, the basic Mogami about R290.  Hardly worth it imo.  It changes on long lengths obviously.
