Hosa AES/EBU Audio Cable

Hosa uses Belden's Best Series-1800-F 110-Ohm coax cable, featuring Belden's exclusive "French Braid" shield for rejection of EMI and RFI interference. They terminate these Excellent AES-EBU cables with precision-tooled XLRs, to create a professional-grade, no-nonsense AES-EBU cable that's second-to-none.

In the regular Hosa line, they pay strict attention to the basics of cable design and construction. Hosa make's sure that they're well shielded from external sources of radio-frequency and current-induced noise and that they're of the proper gauge and of high copper purity to ensure low capacitance. In addition, they use correct soldering techniques to eliminate "cold-solder" joints, which could cause intermittent connections or "ground hums". And finally Hosa makes sure that the jacket and head-shell/strain-relief combination are rugged enough to withstand the rigors of the intended application. Hosa provides all of these benefits in every cable they make, and they back them up with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

More-or-Less Obscure and Not-Necessarily-Related Cable Factoids
You may be surprised to learn that there is no standard wiring procedure for an XLR-type 3-pin connector when wired-out to unbalanced quarter-inch phone or RCA-type connectors. Pin #1 is almost always designated as ground (earth) by equipment manufacturers, but the "hot" or "+" pin is an arbitrary choice. Currently, most equipment manufacturers are (thankfully) choosing Pin #2 as the designated "hot" pin and Pin #3 as the "cold" or "-" pin, but some have stuck with old habits and continue to buck the trends with Pin-3 "hot" connections. What does this mean to you? Know your equipment before buying any XLR-type cable that is wired-out to anything other than another XLR! Hosa ships Pin-2 Hot by default.

There is no "hot" pin in a balanced connection. (Both + and - are in equal potential to ground.) This is not to imply, however, that proper phasing is unimportant!
In an unbalanced connection, the negative (cold) contact also serves as ground (earth).

Even though MIDI cables utilize 5-pin DIN-type connectors, MIDI information is usually carried on only three of them, and some MIDI-cable manufacturers therefore connect only three pins. "Not so at Hosa!," she said nearly smiling. All Hosa MIDI cables are wired 5-pin discrete to ensure that all-other system-exclusive uses for the MIDI cable will be fully supported.

In cable specifications, AWG refers to "American Wire Gauge". A smaller number indicates a larger wire diameter. For example, a 12AWG speaker cable is thicker than a 16AWG speaker cable.

This warranty excludes defects due to normal wear, abuse, shipping damage, or failure to use the cable in accordance with the instructions.
