Audio-Technica AT822 cable wiring
« on: May 05, 2022, 10:57:34 AM »
My Audio-Technica AT822 stereo microphone comes with a 0.5m long 3-pin XLRF to 3.5 mm stereo mini plug, but I'm going to make a new cable using the Low-Profile Right-Angle XLR connector from Cable Techniques. All parts have already been prepared.

I wonder if I can use the wiring diagram of Hosa XVS-101F Mini Stereo Male to 3 Pin XLR Female cable.

I would really appreciate your advice.  :)

Those stubbys are neat. Is the plastic cap compression fit?

That AT822 was one of my first mics.  I was just listening to a 1995 Chuck Berry recording that I made with mine yesterday.  I never liked that little short mini cable but your replica looks really nice.  Great work!

The red plastic cap is secured with two grub screws.

Is there a preferred wire size/type for making XLR cables?

I usually make XLR cables in the size I need.
I made one more for AT822 today.  :)

That's a big question depending on who you ask and probably a question for a whole different thread but the short answer is -

Two conductor cable between 18 and 26 gauge (22-24 being the most common) with a braided shield. Conductors on pins 2 and 3 and the shield to pin 1.

SD Mixpre6 || Oade Concert Mod DR100mkii

I have some left over cable from Ted chopping down a set of AT853s and was going to make an XLR to miniXLR cable with it.  I see that there are actually 2 sets of red and yellow wire in it and assume they just get tied together?  If so, does this double wire change/help/hurt the signal?

That is the Audio Technica miniature star quad cable. Yes, you tie the colors together and get additional noise rejection. It’s great stuff, and I use it for field recording because of its low bulk. I’ve experienced no signal degradation with 25 or 50 foot runs.

It was my first mic.  Ran it straight into my Sony D6.  I can still enjoy listening to some of those old tapes.  I'd run an AT822 today in a heartbeat for old time's sake.
