8 channels in and out, gold contact male and female XLR's to DB25. Mogami 3162 AES digital cable. Fits Apogee, Mackie, Sony, and Yamaha machines. Made with 3162 AES cable.
For live and studio recordings, Mogami Digital Interface Cables support all popular digital recording formats including models from Digidesign, Lynx, Mackie, RME, Sony, TASCAM, Panasonic, and Yamaha. Mogami Digital Interface Cables capture every detail of your recordings and are designed with rigid adherence to 110 ohm AES/EBU standards.In order to properly transmit a completely digital signal, it's critical for the impedance of the cable to match the AES 110 ohm specifications. Many cables come close to the spec for short runs, but longer distances reveal impedance variations that cause signal reflection and loss of information. Not with Mogami digital. Based on the technology of our acclaimed Neglex analog cables, our AES/EBU digital cable uses precision dielectrics and strict manufacturing procedures for loss-free transmission in lengths up to 470 ft.
There's a reason why Mogami is called "The Cable of the Pros." Virtually every major recording facility is wired with Mogami, which means that just about any music you listen to has passed through Mogami somewhere in the recording chain from Fleetwood Mac to Foo Fighters, from Prince to Pearl Jam, and countless others.
Why do so many discriminating artists and studios choose Mogami over other cable brands? It's simple. Mogami is unmatched for accuracy, extremely low noise, ease of installation, flexibility, and superior quality. Professionals and enthusiasts alike rave about the amazing clarity and silent background of Mogami"”technicians swear by it, not at it.
Their story began decades ago when Mogami scientists began researching the causes of audible differences within signal cable. The research was groundbreaking, and controversial, as most engineers at the time thought cable all sounded the same. Mogami's approach was unique. They invested years into researching low-loss signal transfer, the result of which led to the development of Mogami Neglex, a series of cables that changed an entire industry.
The World's Best Cable Does Nothing at All. Mogami has a clear-cut philosophy. Design cables that offer the most accurate signal transfer possible. This may seem like a logical goal, but in fact many cable companies alter the signal for what they perceive to be the "best sound." The problem with creating this unnatural distortion is that it permanently alters the signal flowing through the cable. The distortion may make a particular piece of equipment sound better at one frequency but worse at another. The essence of the original signal is lost forever.
There is no single magic bullet for cable design. Superior design is a mix of conductor material, dielectric, conductor and shield geometry, jacket stiffness, along with fanatical dedication to manufacturing quality. Only technical expertise combined with years of experience can result in the kind of performance that transcends the ordinary. Mogami uses only pure OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) for the best signal transmission, as well as XLPE (cross linked polyethylene) insulation for high dielectric strength and dimensional stability.
You could fill a book with specs but in the end it comes down to the purist philosophy that runs through every Mogami cable. It's why Mogami is a top choice for studio professionals and touring bands everywhere.
