DPA 4021 (and other compact mics cable) cable
« on: December 23, 2012, 07:55:39 PM »
Does anyone know what brand and model number do DPA use for their compact mics? I have been looking for some very narrow and lightweight cables but can't find any as thin and lightweight as the ones DPA uses for their compact mics.

Can someone recommend me on a very thin and lightweight balance cable that can be rolled up and put into the pocket of a coat (cable length as least 30 feet) - cable similar to the one used by DPA?

THANKS!!!

I just bought a few meters of a Mogami 2769 cable (miniature star-quad) @ 1.62 £/m (0.77 $/ft) in the UK (http://www.hhb.co.uk/product_detail.php?id=2371).
At 2mm (0.508") overall diameter (with 4 conductors + screen) is difficult to go lower in size.
Hope it performs well, I still have to receive it!

Anyone know if this is a thinner cable than W2901?

Yes. It's 1.6mm vs 2.1mm.

Best to just browse mogami's website rather than a vendor's as all thr specs will be listed.
