Our Gotham Audio GAC-2 AES/EBU assembly is terminated with Neutrik's XX EMC series connectors, which are specifically designed for Maximum RF protection in live and recording applications. The connectors alone are $25.00; no other company can offer to terminate the GAC-2 AES/EBU with Neutrik XX EMC series connectors at this price.
Gotham Audio GAC-2 AES/EBU Details
Digital Audio signals in the AES/EBU format require an interconnect cable with the correct construction. A mismatch of the impedance, a too small conductor diameter (skin-effect) or an impedance change in a cable run will cause digital errors (jitter) which are causing costly problems on your digital recording. We have found the stability of the impedance the most critical point on an AES/EBU cable and our solution is the "Star-Quad" twisting of the two conductors with two PE-strands to hold the conductors always in place, even when the cable is being bent. Together with our unique "double Reussen shield" we have the perfect signal cable for AES/EBU Digital Audio without compromises in regard to flexibility and handling. The GAC-2 AES is a low loss, flexible AES/EBU cable optimized for use with XLR-connectors or installations with long cable runs (>100m).
Neutrik's XX EMC-XLR Series
is a specifically designed version of the XX series to give enhanced RF screening for critical applications in live performance and recording. The design guarantees a continuous RF shield connection from the cable to the chassis connector housing via a circular capacitor around the cable shield. The circular capacitors act as high-pass filter with a cut-off frequency around 10 MHz. An EMI suppression ferrite bead with 24 Ohm at 1 MHz between pin 1 and the cable screen provides a low-pass filter for improved RF rejection.
