    Can anyone suggest a good source for balanced cable and XLR connectors as I've got some hifi leads to make up.

    Up 'til now I've been using Neutrik gold plated XLR's and Quadflex/Starquad cable from Studio Spares but I'd like to look at some audiophile alternatives.

    umm, me!

    I have a 1/2 metre XLO balanced digital cable for sale that will be going on e-bay in January.

    If you or anyone else is looking for a balanced digital cable, let me know and I will email more details.

    or roughly translated you meen pay silly amounts of money for the same cable with a fancy name and some technical sounding bullshit on the packet:p
    starquad is wonderfull stuff it carries low level mic signals(around 2mv) over long distances ,and dosnt pick up any noise from those noisy mains cables the lampies string up every were,thats the problem its too dam good for domestic use:D

    I've just given it a try - yes, it is good, a slight improvement on my previous cable and cheaper too.

    I've used Van Damme cables before (mainly their installation cable for studio wiring) but I'd not tried this one.
