XLR Male to XLR Female Cables. The workhorse of the audio industry. We make this series of cables from Canare 4E5C star quad cable. Oxygen free copper and the tightest of the tight woven braid shield. We solder Neutrik XLR connectors with gold plated pins. If you need the most rugged cable with the finest audio quality this is it. The tight braid remains tight over years of use and tens of thousands of flexings. Spiral braid cable, on the other hand, gets holes in the braid through flexing, negating the shielding properties of the shield. Further, the star quad configuration of the conductors-4 wires twisted tightly together and used as two audio pairs- gives much better reduction from magnetic interference.than does a single pair of wires twisted together under a shield. Canare 4E5C is about 1/4 inch in diameter. All of our cables come with a two inch long piece of water clear shrink tubing. This allows you to install the label of your choice onto the cable. Your name and phone number, for example, would be of great assistance in getting your cable back to you should it stray in the course of a job. All of our cables over six feet in length come with a Rip Tie installed on the cable to keep it neat when coiled.
