BENCHMARK STUDIO&STAGE™ ANALOG XLR CABLES
HAND ASSEMBLED IN THE USA WITH TRUE SILVER SOLDER
Analog XLR Cables combine the best cable, connectors, and construction
techniques in order to offer performance that meets the demands of world-class
studios, while providing the strength and reliability required for stage
applications. Our professional cables are also well suited for hi-fi
applications because they meet or exceed the electrical performance of the
best high-end hi-fi cables.
RELIABLE AND TRANSPARENT
These same cables
withstand daily use at all of our Audio Precision test stations. Here the
cables continue to reliably deliver precision measurements after experiencing
many thousands of insertion and removal cycles. Every converter, preamplifier,
and amplifier that we build gets tested, and every test requires the insertion
and removal of cables at the test stations. Our own daily use of cables at our
test stations has helped us to determine which cables and connectors are the
most reliable. We have found that Canare StarQuad L-4E6S cable and Neutrik XX
series connectors are a winning combination. Together they provides the most
reliable high-performance cables.
STAR QUAD L-4E6S
Canare Star Quad L-4E6S Microphone
and Audio Line Cable is flexible, satin smooth to the touch, and extra strong.
The 4-conductor Star-Quadconstruction provides excellent
immunity to hum-inducing magnetic fields. The high-density braided copper
shield provides excellent shielding from RF interference. The internal
construction keeps handling noise very low. The 40-strand conductors provide excellent
flexibility and resistance to breakage. The satin smooth jacket remains
flexible at low temperatures. The low capacitance per foot provides excellent
high-frequency response. Benchmark highly recommends Canare Star Quad L-4E6S
cable for microphone and line-level balanced interconnections. This is the
finest microphone cable available.
XX SERIES CONNECTORS
We use Neutrik's premium XX series connectors. These feature
gold contacts and a black housing. The XX series are the most reliable XLR
connectors available - providing excellent contact quality, strain relief,
pullout resistance, and durability. Neutrik XXR color coding rings can easily
be added to assembled cables if desired - order rings separately
Studio&Stage™ Analog XLR Cables are handcrafted in the USA with true silver
solder. Benchmark-branded strain relief sleeves at each XLR connector provide a
controlled cable bend radius to significantly extend the life of the cable at
the most common point of failure - the entrance to the connector body.
Look for "BenchmarkMedia.com" at each end of the cable - this is your
assurance that you have purchased genuine Benchmark Studio&Stage™ Analog
IMPORTANCE OF STAR-QUAD CABLE
the importance of star-quad cable! The geometric symmetry of this 4-wire
structure provides immunity to magnetic interference. Electrostatic copper
braid (or foil) shields block radio signals but they do not block magnetic
fields! Magnetic fields are transmitted from power cords, power supplies,
transformers, computers, AC power lines, lighting ballasts and the lines
leading to and from SCR light dimmers. Star-quad cables are highly immune to
these magnetic sources of interference, but traditional 2-wire cables have very
little immunity. Tests show that
star-quad wire reduces magnetic interference by as much as 25 dB (a factor of
18:1). These same tests show that Canare Star Quad L-4E6S cable is 10 dB ( a
factor of 3:1) more effective than Mogami Neglex 2534 star-quad cable.
