Cables on Demand, a division of Amphenol Corporation, is pleased to now offer a suite of premium XLR connector products for the professional audio market at CablesOnDemand.com, its exclusive online storefront. Engineered in Australia by Amphenol Audio Products, these XLR connectors are available in a variety of configurations including panel (chassis) mountable and in-line (cable) mountable versions. The XLR connector, commonly referred to as a “balanced audio connector”, is the industry standard connection found on professional microphones, mixing consoles, and audio processor racks.
Amphenol's half-century of audio interconnect manufacturing expertise shines through with each and every product in the Amphenol Audio catalog according to Nick Blas, Product Marketing Manager for Amphenol Cables on Demand. "Quality audio interconnect manufacturing is just as much an art as it is a science. The finished product should combine superior ergonomics and aesthetics, while maintaining the highest degree of spectral purity, wear resistance and road-tested reliability. We’re ecstatic to add such a high-caliber product to our existing inventory.”
The first XLR connector platform offered via Cables on Demand is Amphenol Audio’s AC "Z" Series XLR Metal Chassis Mount Connector. According to the manufacturer, “The metal chassis mount “Z” series connectors are designed for the audio user where durability, reliability and strength across a wide range of applications are important. All AC products are manufactured to the highest quality standards and will withstand the harshest environments. This range complies with IEC268-12 and AES14-1992 standards.” The AC “Z” series is ideal for custom audio projects and are offered in either matte black or satin nickel finish to match the look of your specific chassis.
