Instrument TRS cables (stands for Tip - Ring - Sleeve) are also known as "Balanced" or "Stereo" although the latter is misleading. These cables are designed to interconnect pro audio gear with balanced phone jacks. You will also find TRS connectors on the stem of Y cables. These are used for mixer insert jacks where the signal is sent out through one wire and comes back in through the other. TRS cables are typically used for mono, not stereo, signals in most studio gear hence the confusion. The most typical application of a "Stereo" cable would be for running both left and right mono signals to stereo headphones.

A balanced electrical signal runs along three wires: a ground, a positive leg, and a negative leg. Both legs carry the same signal but in opposite polarity to each other. Any noise picked up along the cable run will typically be common to both legs. Assuming the destination is balanced, the receiving device will "flip" one signal and put the two signals back into polarity with each other. This causes the common noise to be out of phase with itself, thus being eliminated. This noise cancellation is called "Common Mode Rejection" and is the reason balanced lines are generally best for long cable runs.

INTEX cables are completely hand made from the finest components available. All connector parts are made of solid metal, from the brass M642/2-2 Military Spec connector & custom engineered shell to the plated steel stress relief spring. All cables are handmade with Belden 8412, an industry standard microphone cable for over 40 years. No compression or crimping is used to attach cable to connector, INTEX cables are welded insuring the strongest and most durable connection possible.

We've been asked a lot about microphone cables and we've always replied that we would come out with some after we designed a new XLR connector. The problem we saw with the XLR connectors available on the market was the lack of strain relief which is the cornerstone of our product line. After one of our regular customers asked for a custom XLR cable, we decided to look into this situation a little deeper. What we came up with was a way to modify a Neutrik connector to accept a steel spring strain relief. We decided to use Neutrik NC3?X-BAG connectors with black metal housings and silver contacts (gold is available but not recommended, call for more details). This industry standard connector is easy to assemble with only 4 parts and no screws and a chuck type clamp to secure the cable.

Of course we continue to use Belden 8412 microphone cable with all our products. This cable features 2 20 AWG tinned copper conductors and EPDM insulation/jacket material which makes it one of the most durable stage and studio cables available. The cable's 85% coverage, tinned copper braid shield provides excellent noise rejection. Every gold & platinum album of the 60's, 70's & 80's owes its success to this cable. Until we come out with our own XLR connector, this is amongst the finest microphone cables on the market.

Sometimes equipment has 1/4" Input/Output connectors instead of XLR connectors, so we designed this cable. The TRS connector is a mil-spec M642/2-2 also known as a PJ-051B. This is the TRS version of the M642/1-1 that we use throughout our product line. Our entire philosophy is about durability & reliability and the standard XLR connector had always been a liability.
