Canare is a Japanese manufacturer of audio and video cables, connectors, patchbays and fiber-optic products for the professional A/V market and television broadcast. With a track record of innovative products and proven reliability their manufacturing excellence is amongst the best in the world and the quality of their Star Quad cables in our opinion is unmatched.
Canare Star Quad Microphone cable comprises 4 identical conductors arranged in a precise twisted geometry so they occupy the same space with corresponding pairs terminated to pins 2 and 3 of a XLR connector. This precise arrangement means electromagnetic interference affects all conductors at the same time effectively balancing or cancelling out the interference. This method is so effective that it reduces magnetically induced noise by 10dB to 30dB. A standard 2 conductor cable cannot achieve this level of noise rejection because its two conductors cannot be arranged to occupy the same space like Star Quad.
So if you are running microphone cables near power cables, lighting rigs, air conditioning or equipment racks with high electrical current gear, our Canare Star Quad cables perfectly terminated with Neutrik XLRs should be at the top of your list.
At Cablesmiths our speciality is custom made Canare Star Quad microphone cables to meet the broadest range of stage, studio and industry needs. To achieve this we stock Canare L-4E5C in both black and grey which is the smaller diameter version of the industry standard L-4E6S low noise microphone cable at only 4.8mm. It is great as a visually discrete microphone or instrument miking cable and rack wiring and tight spaces. Through our customiser app you can design your own small diameter Star Quad cable and customise your cable length, connector colour choices and heatshrink logo and even colour match your long life premium cable tie that’s included.
