Are these cables directional? I don't see any arrows.

I don't think so. I've used them either direction with stunning results. Smiley

Seeing as 'Audio' is an AC phenomenae, (i.e. it is a 'wave') of course they are not directional. Steve, you really should jump in here and explain a few audio basics about cables and stuff and the propogation of sound. I think the greatest revelation re: HiFi, that I learnt, back in the (gosh) '80's, when I first started out in the wonderful world of sound was that sound = AC = everything.
I'm sure you have primers describing all this, but some folk are slow on the looking.

The DSR cables are not directional.  Directionality is a function of the shield, where the shield is connected only at one end of the wire (the input end).  DSR cables are not shielded so no directional markings are needed.
