Microphone cables are used for microphones, as well as line signals for hardware and active monitor speakers. They differ from each other by their structure in shielding and capacitance. The higher the shielding, the lower the risk of interference signals. Starquad cables are optimized for applications in harsh environments with many interfering influences. The capacitance is noticeable in the sound image, because it is always accompanied by a roll-off in the highs. Thus, a cable with 125 pf/m has a larger height drop than a cable with 50 pf/m.
