Balanced Connection


Balanced XLR to stereo jack

The CIM FV microphone cable is used for balanced transmission of audio signals, for example from a microphone or multicore to stereo inputs of audio interfaces, mixers, or audio workstations.

NEUTRIK® has developed these REAN SILVER® XLR female and 6.3 mm stereo jack plugs in subtle black. Combined with our Essentials Cable 1 bulk cable, this cable offers a conductor area of 0.22 mm² (AWG 24) and a spiral shielding of bare copper wires. It is particularly flexible due to the single strand construction (28 x 0.10 mm) and can therefore be easily wound.

The CIM FV is in many points the cheaper alternative to the CPM FV, but the capacity (conductor/conductor) is higher so that attenuations in the signal are possible, especially over longer distances.

For unbalanced transmission of microphone signals to a mono input, we recommend our CIM FP.
