Balanced audio interconnect cable with XLR plugs (2 meters/6.6 feet)
Our take on the McIntosh CBA2M by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Engineered to maximize the performance of McIntosh components
Wouldn't it be great if you could get your hands on the same interconnect cables that audio designers use when they're testing and fine-tuning products? If you own any McIntosh audio gear, here's your chance. McIntosh balanced audio interconnects are designed to enhance the ultra-low noise performance of McIntosh components. Use them to connect McIntosh's XLR-compatible preamplifiers, power amplifiers, and sources.
McIntosh uses two balanced conductors with separate ground, while also adding a fourth chassis ground to further prevent interference. McIntosh balanced cables eliminate induced background noise, leaving only the music.
