Wireworks introduces AESX series audio cables
Wireworks has introduced a new line of digital cable assemblies called the AESX series. The new digital interconnect assemblies include Neutrik XX series XLR connectors for improved signal integrity and mechanical enhancements.
The new series includes both single-pair and eight-pair 110-ohm AES/EBU digital cable assemblies. The single pair cords provide two digital signal paths and are available in 10ft to 100ft lengths, while the eight-pair multicables allow for 16 digital signal paths configured with XLR fanouts on each end. Two application-specific models are available: studio select, with 26-gauge conductors for added flexibility in 10ft to 50ft lengths and Road-Tough assemblies, featuring extra low loss 24 gauge conductors and durable cable jacket in lengths from 10ft to 250ft.
All AESX digital cable assemblies feature Neutrik XX series black-gold connectors with a female contact cage design. The female connector also has an improved solid metal latch, which is larger and easier to handle. Additional ground spring contacts offer better shell ground continuity, and improved chuck type strain relief provides higher pull-out force. The XX boot is designed with polyurethane gland for higher protection to cable bending stresses.
