Recommendations on XLR Cables
11/04/19 at 13:09:47
 
I just got my ZBIT and is very nice and does provide and a real boost to my SuperZen's playing.  I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on the brand model of a reasonably priced pair of XLR interconnects.

Thanks for any input.

I went full bat shit crazy and bought very expensive (but heavily discounted) cables from VooDoo Cables. Their least expensive cables are very good, but the get better each rung of the ladder up and I went all the way. Not regretting it, but a lot of money, but I'll never need to replace them I believe.

Some nice cables can be had by a small builder, Dyson Audio, I bought a set from ebay. And I bought a pair of WireWorld Eclipse that are quite good for the 200 dollar or so price.

Steve has recommended Silver Serpents from Better Cables--I have never tried them.

I have Signal Cable Silver Resolution XLRs and they're very good and affordable to boot:

When I got my Zbit, I ordered XLRís from Grover Huffman. Very happy with them. I got his standard cables, but he also offers his Empress line - double the price, but supposed to be really nice.

I went for the Better Cable too. They have a new one not on the website and itís their top tier XLR now. Iíve been using it for a couple of months now and it is very nice. Replace a more expensive cable just experimenting. Itís really good.
