What is the audio cables for AES? 

Need to use like 110obm high quality cable, cannot use the normal audio cable?


I use on Lectrosonics DSR4 , SRB with AES plate, and install in Lectrosonics Octopack with audio cable to Sound Devices Scorpio.

AES is specified to use 110 ohm cable, but in my experience normal mic cable will work just fine for shorter runs.  For example, I've used a 12 foot Canare star quad mic cable in a pinch on multiple occasions.  I have also used regular XLR to RCA adapters to go between AES and SPDIF because the specifications are close enough.
