Breakaway cables
on Jul 7, 2008 at 12:14:22 am

Im in the process of making some more breakaway cables for my kit and wondering what other people used for connectors in their cables?

Im using 7 pin XLR connectors with...
Pin 1 earth
Pin 2 L+
Pin 3 L-
Pin 4 R+
Pin 5 R-
Pin 6 L return
Pin 7 R return

A friend of mine uses 9 pin "D" type computer connectors but he seems to be repairing them often (they dont seem not robust enough in my opinion)
Does any one have any other suggestions?

Hello Brian and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Sound Devices uses a 10-pin Hirose. Care and best practices must be taken to ensure a good cable.
