Wire: GAC-3 10701 3 conductor double shielded balanced wire with hairthin stranding (96x0.05 mm).
Choice of color black or dark gray, and black or brown with 5.8mm diameter)
Why three conductors for an audio signal? Here are some answers:
Grounding/shielding: With the third conductor put to ground, together with the two shields, we have increased RF-rejection to 115dB (20dB better than standard) at 25 kHz.
Round Construction: 3-conductor constructions are round constructions, and since the cable has the freedom to move in all directions, especially on the strain relief of a connector, the cable will survive more movement cycles.
Phantom Power: The 3rd conductor can be wired as a drain wire for a reliable connection of phantom power to the microphone without affecting the shield.
Each of the three conductors consists of 96 (!!) strands of 0.05mm copper wires being the finest stranding for audio cables available which gives you improved flexibility, better signal transport and longer lifetime (moving cycles). (Heavy duty version with 5.8mm Ø also available)
Connector: GCXLRFemale1BK/male1BK (Pro-Serie with gold Contacts) XL strain releif -12mm.
