Really Long XLR

Looking to move my front end gear to the side wall in a new listening room.  If I don't want cables running across the floor in front in my speakers etc., then I'm going to need a set of XLR interconnects in the 40 - 45 foot range.  Wondering what other members have done and what cables have been selected for a very long run.  Obviously the companies asking $$$$ for a one meter set are not in the running.  All suggestions are welcome.  Not afraid to build my own if anyone has had great experience with bulk XLR cable.  Thanks.


It depends if your amp and preamp are true balanced.  If they are something like Mogami is fine.  I run Mogami XLR cables in my balanced system between amp and preamp.  I’ve compared this run to using Cardas Clear XLR that I use everywhere else.  There is no difference in sound.  Now doing the exact same thing in another system I have which is not balanced, there is a pretty significant difference.  I believe Atma-Sphere has some white papers out on this subject.

Glad to hear you are pleased with Audio Sensibility XLR’s. IME, cables will continue to improve upto 300 hours mark. Enjoy your superb investment for years to come!

Sounds like a good buy. I have been considering upgrading my BJC XLR's to OCC, either Zavfino or Audio Sensibility. I like the Star Quad configuration of the Impact, but guessing I would not see much of an upgrade over what I am using. Looking at the Statements, flexibility is a concern for me due to space constraints, how much clearance would you say is needed between a component and the wall for graceful installation of these cables?

@zlone  The back side of my amps are 7 inches off the wall and the Statement cables make a natural loop to the side without any stress on the cable.  I would say that is close to the minimum distance you want to work with.  Cheers.
