Audio signals are AC. The signal doesn't flow from point A to point B like DC current, it goes back and forth.corgan4321 wrote: One way down the cable there is technically less resistance but often unnoticeable.

Anybody know whether or not this is snake oil?
I don't know about the "one way" terminology in that application, but ground lifting is used (the shielding effectively only being connected at one end, typically the console, but does travel the length of the cable) in a star grounding scheme.Embrace wrote:The "One way" would be referring to a single end shield - I've seen some planet wave "instrument cables" that are only shielded on one end, something to do with possible ground hum issues.
Embrace wrote:The "skin effect" happens in super high voltages where all the electrons flow on the outside of a conductor. Whether or not this affect happens with high frequency low voltage I have no clue.
This is even more better
