Re: RF shunting method
Actually Dai it's not just the shape but the actual dimensions that are important with RF.  
 
The element lengths of an antenna are actually resonant at specific frequencies. Even a reflector element or a ground plane rectangle is usually made a specific length and/or width to achieve a desired performance.  
 
Wire lengths at vhf or uhf frequencies can be resonant inside a chassis and cause problems.  
 
These factors are totally irrelevant at audio - resonant lengths could run to kilometres! Pigtail terminations look no different to a signal than circumference terminations at audio.
