The CIM MV microphone cable is used for balanced transmission of audio signals, for example from drum machines, interfaces and audio workstations to studio monitors or other mixers with balanced XLR inputs.
NEUTRIK® has developed this REAN SILVER® XLR male and 6.3 mm stereo jack plugs. 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 thus allows good spooling.
The CIM MV is in many points the cheaper alternative to our CPM MV, but the capacitance values (conductor/conductor) are higher, so that attenuations in the signal are possible especially over longer distances.
For unbalanced transmission of mono audio signals to an XLR input, we recommend the CIM MP.
