Gepco shows new high-bandwidth microphone cable
Gepco, now owned by General Cable, will showcase its XB201DBM X-Band microphone cable at the AES 2009 convention. The extra-flexible, high-bandwidth microphone cable features a double braid shield for added noise rejection that makes it ideal for recording studio facilities or live sound venues.
The XB201DBM has a wide frequency response and exceptional RF/EMI noise rejection, which are achieved by utilizing a gas/polymer dielectric that significantly reduces the capacitance, as well as cabling the pairs with a tight and precise twist. Conductors are made from finely stranded, oxygen-free copper to maximize conductivity and protect against corrosion. Shielded with a double (2X 95 percent) copper braid, the XB201DBM provides exceptional noise rejection. As with all cables in the X-Band series, it features proprietary matte PVC compound that is both flexible and durable.
