Similarities between some non rg6 cable and and something meeting the rg6 spec does not make it rg6. Aiui, over 90percent of my dna is identical to that of a rat. I am not a rat and rats are not human despite significsnt similarities in our dna. See?
Perhaps it would behoove us all, if you read every word of the spec document and then went on to visit other such vendors specifications of the same cable type. They can all pass AES or SPDIF...
Its about bandwidth, which is the product of more then the gauge of a cables primary conductor. The a cables egression and permitted ingressions (current requirements aside); the smaller the primary conductor or conductors can be.
Solid core Cat5E can pass it all! As can stranded Cat5 E, or higher! As an easily verifiable fact, mogmai, monster, canare, belden, west penn, delco, whirlwind and others that I cannot recall at this moment all make multi-stranded, multi-conductor, twisted pair, AES/EBU digital audio cables. Which can be terminated to any TS or TRS connector in the world!

be sure to scroll down the page and read everything, and the debate should com to an end.
Please stop talking about rats and DNA and read the spec, or look up others. Or remain in the dark, but please stop injecting false truths into this thread, as it may actually mislead some members and onlookers, from outside the body of membership.
I am right and everyone else that has posted in opposition to me, is wrong!
