An extremely flat, uncolored, quiet, and neutral cable. Gotham Audio believes a cable should carry a signal without affecting the tone. We recommend this cable for studio use.
Gotham Audio GAC-2 AES/EBU Details (10601)
Digital Audio signals in the AES/EBU format require an interconnect cable with the correct construction. A mismatch of the impedance, a too small conductor diameter (skin-effect) or an impedance change in a cable run will cause digital errors (jitter) which are causing costly problems on your digital recording. We have found the stability of the impedance the most critical point on an AES/EBU cable and our solution is the "Star-Quad" twisting of the two conductors with two PE-strands to hold the conductors always in place, even when the cable is being bent. Together with our unique "double Reussen shield" we have the perfect signal cable for AES/EBU Digital Audio without compromises in regard to flexibility and handling. The GAC-2 AES is a low loss, flexible AES/EBU cable optimized for use with XLR-connectors or installations with long cable runs (>100m)
We can also cover the cable with a protective clear sleeve, aka EasyCoil™, and/or our NoKink™ tertiary jacket that prevent the ends of an XLR cable to sag, or bend easily.
The EasyCoil™ technology, as the name suggests, assures the cables are extremely easy to coil due to the secondary jacket. This helps the cable to hold its form (when properly wound) and provides extra protection, resulting in a longer life. Our NoKink™ practice is geared toward protecting the ends of the cables. Since XLR connectors are heavy, cables often develop kinks at each end over time. Our tertiary “jacket” is applied to both ends to prevent this from happening. With these two features combined, the result is a high-quality, easy to manage cable that will go the distance and then some.
