Looking to make some custom cables to use with my new Sound Devices MixPre-6 and would like to use some low profile XLR connectors. There seems to be two on the market but the pricing difference between the two is substantial. So I thought I'd ask around here and see if anyone out there has experience working with both and can comment on the differences. There is the Cable Techniques option, which retails for about $15/connector: LINK And the Remote Audio option, which retails for about $25/connector: LINK Both have options for color coded caps (though the Remote Audio colored caps are more expensive) and both require a thinner cable to be used for which I was planning to go with Mogami W2697 miniature microphone cable (LINK). Anyone tried both of these and can comment on whether or not the Remote Audio connectors are worth the higher cost? I am planning to purchase 4-8 of these in male and female configuration so if the Cable Techniques are the same quality or better it would save me quite a bit of coin to go with them.
Hi guys Just needing a little assistance regarding the cable techniques Rx emergency unit which I recently bought. I'm finding the noise floor extremely high and I'm sure that shouldn't be the case. I'm using a Lectro 411a, outputting line level @ 0dBu from the receiver into the mix in of my 302. I'm getting decent audio levels but the hiss is bad. I've tried it on my other 411a with the same results. The one possible cause I thought of could be the balanced cable which I wired myself, however from an XLR to TA3F the wiring is straight forward 1 to 1, 2 to 2 and 3 to 3. Unless I need to add a resistor somewhere. Any help would be appreciated! Sebastian
