    Connecting screens on phono amp cables

    I am using Van Damme cable with two conductors and a screen to connect up my valve phono amp kit .
    I have connected one inner conductor to the screen at one end of each of the four cables. My intention is to connect the screen up at each phono input and output of the pcb and connect just the inner conductors to the RCA sockets on the back panel.
    Is this correct?

    It depends. I have a phono stage which has a floating input despite single ended conectors. While it will work with one leg earthed, if you leave that leg floating and connect the sheild to the case you effectively have a balanced input which MC cartridges respond well to. So cartridge and phono configuration can matter. However from what I can tell, what you suggest should work as a default.
    Let me get this straight. You take a perfectly good CD and put it in a DVD player??!!
