It was needed

DB-25 to 8-Channel 3-Pin XLR

This would be a decent cable for a fixed installation or occasional remote usage. Care must be taken to avoid bending the rather flimsy molded-on DB-25 connector's flanges in transport/handling, as they can easily be bent. The XLRs are 'usable' but not of Neutrik or Switchcraft quality.. same for the cable stock. If I were using this more than occasionally, I certainly would have chosen a more robust (more expensive) alternative. I consider this Hosa DB-25 to 8-Channel XLR Snake good for the price and there were no issues with sound quality.

Good product. Great price.

Excellent for short cable runs. Considering all of the snake-oil (pardon the pun) claims for expensive cabling, this product is all you need unless you're looking at very long cable runs. I can't comment on the durability of the connectors, but in my application that is not an issue. Unless you have money to burn, and the ears of a bat to go with it, these connectors are a great option.

B & H Continues to be a great supplier

I have purchased items from B & H for our church and my personal studio. They always ship what I order. This snake was purchased at a very competitive price.

Good experience!!!

A classic cable still being used, and works!

Surprised that these cables are being used for new audio interfaces, but can't complain the interface wanting to save connector space in simply using the multi pin out... This connector I am using with my Antelope Orion Studio where I am sending audio to a speaker to my class while at the same time having a direct audio feed being played on the streaming video. Sound quality is great and efficient and doing the job I intended and looking forward to being able to send audio to multiple outputs for online streaming, performances, and recording. HOSA may not be the top of the line product, but when it works the item is the ultimate best bang for the buck.

Important to check the wiring

I bought this product to use it in my professional Cinema audio set-up. However, the wiring was so mismatched, that I can't use it. I only discovered this by visiting thr HOSA website and downloading the technical specs. So make sure, you check that before you buy this product - not all systems are wired the same and it's not always possible to change the wiring in your pre-amp. A useless spend of money and I have to try to re-sell that thing as a return isn't economical considering the international freight charges.

Is the pin assign compatible with Protools C24 ...

Is the pin assign compatible with Protools C24 console o other protools interfaces?
Asked by: Rafael
The wiring of this snake follows the Tascam wiring pattern, and will be compatible with most audio interfaces with a DB-25 output.
