    Hey Folks!
    I am Bi-Wiring my AR9 mains and I need a source for the
    black nylon braided covering like you find on a set of
    Better Cables Bi-Wires.. The Shack has all the banana
    terminations I need but they don't cary any sort of
    wire sleeving. What I plan do to is install the dual
    runs of 12 Gauge Rope Braid OFC inside this braided
    nylon jacket and then PVC Heat Shrink each end leaving
    roughly 2" of split cable with terminations.
    I checked The Shack and Parts Express and neither has
    anything to cover wire with, other than spiral or Split
    conduit (neither of which I want)
    Thanks in advance....
    Sincerely
    Brett D.

    Thomas,
    Thanks for the reply and sorry I hadn't replied sooner.
    A fellow HT nut helped me out with the braiding (shiped me
    some from the UK) and my Bi-Wires are now complete. Here are
    some pictures.
