Can someone please explain in layman's term :) what

Nom. Capacitance -
Nom. Conductor DC Resistance

are and what they do for digital coaxial cables?

    Both contribute to signal loss, though it's debatable whether it's significant over normal lengths. The lower the spec the better.

    also keep in mind that coax is digital, meaning it will either work right or not work at all, generally unless your running 200ft of cable it won't matter.

    Since I own some Blue Jeans and Signal cables (and have been very happy with them), I decided to try out our friends at Monoprice. Since alot of the higher end cables tell the specs of their cables I asked Monoprice's about theirs. They came back with this:


    Thanks for your patience while we got the information you requested.
    The information we received from the department that gets that
    information is as follows -

    Nom. Capacitance - 54 pf/m

    Nom. Conductor DC Resistance - 0.22 ohm/m

    Nom. Inductance - you can ignore this, becasue the testing result of
    the cable will be different from putting the cable in straight and
    cercle


    I have 3 of their premium cables and have them connected from my AVR to my Cable Box, Blu-Ray player for audio AND use one for my sub-woofer cable. After listening to some movies/TV I am VERY pleased with the results. Hope someone else can find the above specs/info useful.
