As always Mike, I think you get what you pay for...unless you are in the world that believes cables do not make a differnce, then buy all the extension cable you want :P

I do use home depot cable on my subwoofer where I wanted all copper cable anyway, so it works fairl well though it sounds a bit wooly to me.

I don't buy that someone was rebranding hd cable and asking 3 grand for a second, at least not anyone with the slightest amount of integrity.

your link is dead.


I tried some HD cable from a 12 gauge extension cord.
They lasted only as long as it took me to break out my beloved's again, and get them back into place. A wasted half day.

Hmm, it seems that I can no longer find it on Home Depot's Canadian site at all.  Very strange, in fact I can only find something like 3 different outdoor extension cords listed period.  Not like when I first posted and I came up with more then a dozen different ones.
AKG C4000 > P-mod UA-5 > NJB3 (48KHz) > SVU-2
DPA 4061 (x1, hat mounted) > MPS 6010 > P-mod UA-5 >  NJB3 (48KHz)

Looking for another 4061 or even a pair of 406x mics to replace my single.  Please help me stealth in stereo.

Honestly, most of the extention cords are going to work about the same as long as they are pretty hefty and the guage that you want.  I got mine from Menards and it works just fine.
