German term or phrase: (Ader) durchgängig geriffelt
This is from a marketing website for hi-fi speaker cables. This section seems to be saying that the insulation is not printed on but is marked in some way: widerstandsfähige rein –weiße PVC-Isolierung ohne störende Aufdrucke, als Kennung ist eine Ader durchgängig geriffelt

The insulation around one of the two wires has ridges/grooves running along its full length, giving tactile as well as visual recognition, so that the two don't get get switched round during installation.

There are two photos on the advert, both of which you can zoom in on. The second photo shows eight ridges running the length of the second wire.
