The Van Damme XKE Starquad Microphone Cable was developed on behalf of the London 2012 Olympic Games. One of the requirements was to withstand interference even from high current sources and at the same time ensure the highest signal integrity over enormously long running distances. The product development was so successful that the Van Damme XKE Starquad Microphone was also used at the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 in the venues and for TV broadcasting by the BBC. 

It is ideal for cabling microphones, consoles and outboard with line level and active speakers.

Starquad cables are the next step in balanced cabling. The Van Damme XKE Starquad Microphone Premium has two wires per signal path (2 x + pole & 2 x – pole), which are twisted around each other. This increases the surface area of the cable wires. Noise is induced more evenly. This even induction means that more noise and interference are suppressed when the signals are inverted again. For this reason, as well as the enormously good sound properties, this cable is used extensively in broadcasting, as well as by professional recording studios with many power sources, and also on tours by, for example, Rihanna and Adele.

"Van Damme has consistently delivered quality cable solution to the studios for over 20 years."​

Mic | Line

Specified for analogue audio signals with microphone levels in areas of high electronic interference. Ideal for microphones exposed to EMI, RFI and other interference frequencies – for example, in close proximity to main power supplies or Bluetooth. This cable combines electrical integrity with mechanical strength without compromising flexibility.

Quad Mic Leads London 2012
Quad Mic Leads Rio 2016

The cable is suitable for microphone level signals in electrically harsh environments; especially in outside broadcasts, professional studios and the film industry. It is also suitable for analogue balanced line level audio and is particularly recommended for longer distances. It is made from a combination of silver-plated and high-purity oxygen-free copper conductors for unsurpassed sound quality.
