“The AES/EBU digital wire was designed to meet the AES3 PHYstandard,” continues May. “Manufacturing the cables, plugsand terminating it all in-house provides us with significantadvantages. This allows us to control the levels of attenuation,crosstalk, resistance, product life and other metrics detrimental forhigh quality audio performance. The end result is a superior cableassembly. The wire is for AES/EBU digital audio applications where youneed to connect a console or router to any other source or destination,such as a digital recorder. It is a 24-gauge cable that comes in two,four, six, eight, 12 or 16 pairs, so regardless of the application, wehave a cable that meets nearly every requirement.
