Default Re: 'Cable Break In' - I never knew that!

This is correct. It's called the skin effect and is dependent on the material and frequency.

Skin depth of copper at about 100KHz (way above audio spectrum) is around 0.2mm which makes the whole problem rather insignificant compared to conductor sizes.

At RF things are different which is why you end up with litz wire etc.
