    ok. i now have some dope gear, but i think good cable will make all the difference [as in i'm using a friggin' RADIO SHACK spdif cable from my APOGEE rosetta to my paris rig. ^#$%ed up, i know]

    so good patch/mic/digital cable?

    and where to get it...

    also: any input on good power conditioning?

    i want clean power so i can actualy tell distortion from fuckign dirty power.

  2. Furman makes a line of balanced power converters that claim to reduce noise floor by several dB (maybe 10-12?). A friend has one and he swears by it (not at it).

    Mogami, Monster, Canare, and Belden all make excellent cable.

    Oops, almost forgot, where to buy. GC/Mars/whatever should have a S/PDIF cable of acceptable quality. Be prepared to pay out the nose for it. Maybe someone else can provide suppliers for custom cable.

    Hello David,

    Try http://www.markertek.com. They offer cables or all the connectors and cables for you to make it or, they custom make 'em.

    I use Canare 110ohm AES, or 75ohm if you need SPdif. Its flawless as far as I can tell. I custom make them in any length with gold ends and silver solder. email me if you need something. :cool:
