Audio-Technica exhibited new microphone, guitar and speaker cables, as well as redesigned packaging for the company’s Wireless Essentials® and other pro-grade accessories at this year’s NSCA show. The Wireless Essentials and accessories are now available.
Of the new cables introduced, two high-quality levels are offered: Premium and Value. The Premium Microphone cables (XLRF-XLRM) are engineered for maximum signal transfer and minimum loss. Designed for low-impedance operation, these balanced cables feature heavy-duty construction (24-gauge stranded copper conductors) and professional Neutrik connectors. To protect signal quality, each conductor has an individual spiral shield inside the molded insulated sheath. A conductive PVC layer inside each shield dissipates static buildup during flexing. A wide variety of cable lengths are available, ranging from 1.5 to 100 feet.
The A-T Value Microphone Cables are available in two configurations (XLRF-1/4-inch and XLRF-XLRM). The Value Microphone Cables are backed by a five-year warranty and come in a wide variety of lengths ranging from 10 to 25 feet (XLRF-1/4-inch) and 10 to 50 feet (XLRF-XLRM).
The A-T Premium Instrument Cables comprise professional high-quality ¼-inch connectors with strain relief, dual-jacket design and 24-gauge stranded copper conductors. A wide variety of cable lengths are available ranging from 1.5 to 30 feet; a 0.5-inch length with right-angle ¼-inch connectors is also offered. The Premium Instrument Cables come with a limited lifetime warranty.
