should I get short xlr's for studio?
« on: February 26, 2004, 06:41:28 PM »
I have 17" Canare's for the field (thanks Nick) but I will be doing a WHOLE BUNCH of studio stuff.  Is it worth it to get another set of canare's with the neutrik ends somewhere around 5-7"?  TIA

yeah I mean feet.  should I use the  '  instead of the  "  ?

My only concern is that I read that the shorter the cable, the better.

i highly doubt that you'll notice a dramatic difference in quality unless your 17 footer is snaking through a jungle of high current power cable or other current induce magnetic fields.

but if you only need short cable runs like 12" or so, why the hell not.  Star Quads are really cheap in $ and so are Neutrik XLR3 ends.

go for eeeeeet.

yah if you are gonna do a bunch of studio work its time to begin building your own cables... great way to cut costs in the studio.
