Cotton Sleeving Upgrade

This week we have a write up from A.C. about upgrading cables with cotton sleeving:
"I made a pair of silver foil speaker cables using your cotton sleeving, and the sound is astonishing! I expected an improvement in the treble and detail compared to the old copper foil cables but I was pleasantly surprised by the transformational change in sound. 
The instrument placement seems much tidier yet more natural, and music overall is very toe-tap inducing (I guess the proper audiophile term is PRaT). I know I'll be enjoying this holiday very much.


Several details regarding my DIY recipe:
1. The silver foil was taken from a 14awg alpha core inductor.
2. The black tape at the end of the cable is TA-32 vibration damping material from Japanese company Fo. Q.
3. The cotton tube is in direct contact with the silver foil."
Cable sleeving is a cheap way to upgrade a system so it's great to get some positive reviews back about it, many thanks to A.C. for writing in!
