    We'll probably use two 4 channel's instead of one 8.
    XLR to XLR.
    Mogami?
    Hosa is crap right?
    Monster's got that warranty.
    any other good ones?

    It's going to be "buried" in the wall, so we want to get a really nice one that won't give us any trouble
    (i.e. having to rip open walls to find the problem)

    - thanks

    I have several snakes and D-Sub cables by this company. Nice stuff at good prices. Easy to get custom stuff too.

    Carefull of running standard cable in-wall. Sounds like you are doing it yourself so you can do what ever, if a contractor is doing it, class 2 wiring has to be used. Has to be "to code" and all. If you handy with a soldering iron I would suggest making your own and saving some money.

    How much $$$ do you want to drop?Canare I love Canare stuff.

    I think the Whirlwind stuff is great too. Hosa is crap, but sometimes crap is all that is needed. Horizon makes less crap than Hosa but not by a whole lot.
     
  6. I just got some nicely made 4 channel XLR mogami snakes from hotwired cables, They were reasonable (I got some stock cables from them on ebay, and then ordered custom) and easy to deal with.

    Aloha,
