What I have now:
2 x Schoeps KC-L cables that terminate in 3 pin Lemo connectors
1 x 15' Schoeps KC cable that ends in Lemos on both ends.

Here are my options:

1) Keep the lemo set up and just change out a couple of lemo connectors $80 and have them make me a matching extension cable for $100.

Pros:Lemos offer a sturdy connection
Cons: Two cables versus one KCY

or

2) Make the two KC-L cables into one KCY that terminates in a 5pin binder connector $186 and have them build me a an extension cable for $100. The KCY would have 1' of lead from the splitter box (suggestions;longer or shorter?) Then I would have to sell the lemo extension cable.

Pros - 1 cable/easy setup and can be used with the Schoeps stereo body.
Cons - 5 pin binder is succeptible to wear and tear

FWIW, I never found this to be the case.  I had lemos on my old Neuamann's, and while I didn't use them, just from touch & feel they seemed less robust than the 5-pin binder.  YMMV.

I think that is the option that I am leaning towards. Just sucks that I have to sell that extension cable on Ebay. Doubt that anyone here on the board would need such a unique cable.

looks like a KCY is in the works. Hopefully I should have it sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Isnt this the exact cable I need to go from MK41>Lemosax ??? I want the one thats 5meters[16feet]. Isnt this the correct cable? Pro Sound in NYC told me it is in fact 5m[16'] but was just wondering what yinz had to say. I DO NOT want an extension cable like I would need for the KCY 250/0. The 250/5 is 5meters long, correct?

Right you want the KCY 250/5 if you do not want to use an extension cable.  The one in the pic represents the KCY250/0 but from the price it looks they are selling the KCY 250/5.

So it looks like this is the right cable just that the pic is misleading.

Latest pricelist is here:

Look on page 10.

You may want to ask here for one used before going new. As you would save a few hundred bucks.
