    This forum has been a great help to me, so I would like to ask you guys a question again. I am planing to buy bulk cables and bunch of Neutirks connecters. Mogami is kind of too much of the price. Is Belden good enough for home-studio? If so, which model could be great? What would be the other alternatives?

    You could use Canare model L4E6S Star Quad...even comes in colors...and...the "twisted pair" leads in the Star Quad cable configuration will allow you to "double balance" your cables.

    In case you haven't heard of double-balancing cables you solder both of the twisted pair lead wires in the Star Quad cable on each lug on the Nutrik connector, instead of the normal one lead wire per lug....this is supposed to produce an even quieter cable than standard balanced cable procedure does.

    Check out the diagram on the "AUDIO CABLE" page of this site.


    The guyz below advertise Canare Star Quad for 44 cents a foot.

    I was aware of doble balanced cables, but was not sure how the things were constructed.

    I'm down-river from the windy city...about 250 miles...across the river from old St Lou.

    I bought Canare Starquad from FullCompass (http://www.fullcompass.com) for $29/ft - that was a while back, and I bought 250 ft to get the price.

    I've bought from FullCompass, at least once, in the past...they usually have very competitive prices...I just wish they'd set up a regular online website with a shopping cart system, instead of forcing you to call them to place an order.
