Balanced digital audio cable (110 Ohm) – AES-EBU with XLR plugs
Balanced digital audio cables with XLR connection and 110 Ohm impedance, which are utilized for transmission of high-res digital audio without noise.
Balanced XLR cables for the AES-EBU standard (IEC 60958) distinguish themselves by being incredibly immune to noise exposure, and can thus carry digital sound more purely than regular unbalanced, digital coaxial cables with RCA connectors.
These digital XLR audio cables are often used between high-end CD players and amplifiers, or between front and power amplifier that support unbalanced digital sound transfer.
The cables have an impedance of 110 ohms for proper transmission.
