I am deterred by lumpy shrink-wrap, although I do have it on 1 or 2 cables.

Perhaps you should try it and then let's talk

Although Steve's opinion is well respected by me especially about MasterBuilt...I think this cable peaks my interest solely based on design and John McDonald.

I have had good luck with Synergistic Research Galileo and Audioquest Diamond. Shunyata Venom is also good.

I am definitely a Cable Guy, but definitely do not like talking about cables. You can never get past the conductor before hitting IP.

I have tried a few and found that as long as it is shielded there isn't major differences between the good ones I have tried.

TotalDAC USB cable which replaced an Audioquest Diamond which had replaced a Wireworld something er' another...

They all sound different, the TotalDAC wins hands down especially for the $.
