3 Conductor to XLR (Neumann) Microphone cable wiring instructionHow to wire 3-Conductor cables to XLR connectors:
3 Conductor cables 10701/10801 will best be wired/soldered as follows:
Each conductor to each Pin: Pin1= green plus shields, Pin2= brown (Signal+), Pin3= white (Signal -). Put each a few strands of each layer of the shields together with the green conductor to the ground Pin 1.
Cut away any spare strands from the shields and secure that no loose strands are hanging around. Use a shrinking tube to avoid short ciricuits. We do not recommend to put any ground to the body shell on either side of your XLR line. The connector shell will get to ground once pluged into a recepacle. The round construction of a 3 conductor cable will give many more moving cycles to your interconnect cable as the perfect round cable will distribute/allow any movement in any direction of the cables bending point at the connectors strain releif. This will give an extremly better (longer) livespan of your cable.
RCA/Phono/Jack unbalanced wiring: Many clients use our 3 conductor perfect round cable also for unbalanced interconnects. In thgis case we recommend to only use 1 conductor (brown) for you signal and put all other wires or parts tereof to ground with the shields. this will increase your noise protection! However for umnbalanced application we do have our perfect unbalanced wires 1001x, and 1000x.
+/- 1m You can adjust the desired cable length!
Prices indicated are always per piece with a 3 meter length. If you need a pair, please order 2pc. We assemble each cable manually in our own lab in Dietikon. Allow a few days delivery delay. Some stock available for immediate shipment. We can only invoice full meters but you can ask your cable per cm specifyed. Therefore 1.50 meter would be charged like 2.00 meter. We will confirm/quote correct price/delivery after receipt of your inquiry/order. All cables are made individually and indicated dimensions and lenght are
estimated and possible tolerances of +/- 3% are possible. All cables are per piece, if you like a pair you need to order 2pc please.
