New York, NY (September 27, 2018)—Sommer Cable will introduce the new SC-Micro Duo Aramid shielded twin pair cable for hanging stereo microphones at AES next month.
Aramid consists of synthetic polymers, related to nylon, that yield strong fibers with thermal stability.
Intended for use in surround and multi-channel recording, the cable is said to be resilient enough to handle being hung from a ceiling or exposed to strong tensile forces. To absorb the weight of the microphones, fillers made of braided aramid fibers have been incorporated to act as an additional strain relief.
Compared to steel ropes, the aramid fibers have no negative impact on the cable’s audio transmission quality. The SC-Micro Duo Aramid is AES/EBU and DMX capable (110 Ohms) and contains concentrically braided OFC wires.
