I did some reading up on the Canare brand cable and, hands down, this is the most prolific cable brand used by audio studio techs and engineers. In short, I will be ordering this brand to go with my Neutrik XLR connectors for our interconnect cabling. By the way, the Canare 2-conductor cable that also comes highly recommended is model number L-2T2S. The Canare "quad type" (4-conductor) -- which was already mentioned by poster TXBonds -- is model number L-4E6S. The 2-conductor Canare presently goes for about $3.49\/meter, while the 4-conductor Canare presently goes for roughly $4.59\/meter. \n\nDespite some early turbulence, this thread was very helpful...so I hope that it helps others in the future. ;) \n\n\nSorry for the turbulence, didn't realize you wanted just to spend more :) Are these for particularly long runs or you have need for such construction particularly?
