    Just recieved my new van den hul d 102 mkIII interconnect and at one end of the cable is a sticker with ground end on it.The cable is not directionable so what end would everyone connect the ground side.

    i figure that if you connct ground to the source it means that the noise enters the component furthest from the speakers so is good..... but this likewise means that that noise will be amplified further than if you connected ground to the non source end..... so i cant really be sure which is best
