What about using 1505A for digital video and analog stereo IC's?
What is the opinion on that?
I am already invested in the strippers and the crimp tool to do the Canare or equivalent RCA ends as well as BNC connectors and I love making these cables!!!
If you like 1505A for this purpose how does it compare to the better commercially available cables on the market today?
Thanks

It should work in reasonable lengths.

If you are going to put it in walls or ceilings, 1506A is plenum-rated and therefore likely more fire-resistant.

- update - I agree with the following post - its overkill for audio. But its not being sold for high end audio prices.

"The opinion"? Surely you jest! ;-)

Be careful of transforming a mole hill into a mountain!

Gross overkill for analog audio. It's not going to make any difference over standard audio cable.
