    Mogami XLR Interconnects

    I have to move my equipment rack from its old position between the speakers to a side wall, so I need to obtain some 4 meter balanced interconnects to connect the preamp and amp. The previous interconnect used was Harmonix Technology MagicLink. Given the cost of an XLR interconnect of this length, I was considering trying some Mogami Gold Studio-15 XLR Microphone Cables or Mogami Gold AES-12 digital/analog XLR microphone cables. Have any of you tried these interconnects and what was your impression of them? Any other suggestions for a solution to this problem?

    Re: Mogami XLR Interconnects

    Hi,

    I have tried the Mogami Gold. It was actually pretty good. That was many years ago.

    I’ve since switched to Belden 8402 for the most part with other cables in between depending on gear.

    The Mogami is probably a little more neutral but a great performer. Price is right and depending on your personal taste, could be great.

    I have a 20' pair of Canare L-4E6S terminated with Neutrik XLRs you can try out, aka try before you buy (at a peanuts price comparatively speaking). PM me.

    Re: Mogami XLR Interconnects

    Mogami, Canare and Belden all make excellent balanced interconnect cables! You won't be able to hear any differences. But you don't need a microphone cable. It's optimized for low handling noise, flexibility and robust construction (at extra cost).

    Also you don't want a Star-Quad cable. They are for pro-audio situations with harsh interference conditions.

    Now a guitar cable is a completely different story.

    I use a pair of Belden cables to connect my sub to the pre-outs of my integrated. I’ve been pleased with the performance.

    Agree with the Belden 8402. I love mine and it sounds better than my Cardas Parsec and AQ Columbia

    Besides BTPA.com you can buy a pair of Belden 8402 that use silver connectors and are cryo treated for whatever that is worth from here-

    They are a bit more in price. A friend of mine bought a pair from them and loves them. I use the BTPA.
