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.
This is my first post and I can honestly say this site is very informative and I've taken a lot of advice from several postings. I thought I'd share my experience in some Low Profile Cables I had made recently.The Low Profile XLR -> TA3F Cables were built by Matt Radlauer over at http://www.clearcutaudio.com/custom-cables/. I am very pleased and highly recommend his cables. The PayPal payment process was seamless as well as the turnaround time.
