    I need an audio cable with a resistance of less than 0.07 ohms and was told that the lower the number the higher the resistance-- is that accurate? The cable I have has a resistance of 0.12 ohms. Is that good or bad. Here is what the actual brochure said "High loop resistances that exceed 0.07Ω
    (for each wire run) will cause the filter
    network to be mis-terminated, resulting in
    considerable degradation of sound quality."

    Is this cable a problem for me?

    You can use a 24 awg cable or a 12 awg cable and you won't be able to detect any difference in audio quality. So its your choice entirely.

    I'm sorry - I meant to move the original post to this forum. I'll close this and move the other, as it has more replies.
