I have a small recording studio set up with various mics and cables using a mix of DLX and Studio One. Is there a difference? I have a matched pair of small diaphragm mics that I set up side by side across from the 12th fret of my acoustic guitar. The Roland Octa Capture interface has "auto-sens" which allows you too play for an amount of time, and at the end, automatically set the gain. It is a very good and accurate device and saves a lot of time when you have a group of people to record with a number of mics. Everyone plays together and each mic gets set, without clipping.
One mic had the Yorkville DLX cable 15 ft, and the other a 25 ft Studio One. Octa Capture set on Bypass to eliminate the compressor feature. The DLX supplied mic had a gain setting that was 10% higher over the Studio One mic. Cables were switched between mics and the test done a number of times. The same 10% increase in gain was required with the DLX cable. Not a huge difference, but when you listen to the noise floor between the mics with good headphones you begin to understand what that 10% difference will give you, especially with vocal recordings.
I then replaced the DLX with a 6 ft Studio One to compare with the 25 ft Studio. The "auto-sens" matched the gain for both mics - no difference basically, The 6 ft was at 35.0 gain and 25 ft was at 35.1 gain - out of a scale of 50.
The ONLY complaint is that the Amphenol connector on the Studio One is very tight going into the mic, and it will not lock The DLX cable locks on all my mics. The Studio cable is held tight and takes quite a bit to remove from the mic, so no fear of falling out using a mic clip mount. A hand held mic with a singer moving about could be an issue.
The issue with the Studio One cable is the rubber spacer grommet acting as a buffer when you plug the connector into the mic. It's too thick, by a fraction. Remove this spacer and the connector clicks into position. Switch the grommet from the DLX to the Studio and it locks. So the thicker grommet is the issue. Other than that - great cables.
