In the audio world,cablesare king. And of all the audio cable types, the balanced cable is one of the best in the business. Every venue, studio, and home recording setup requires cables of some sort. Even wireless stage rigs have cables discretely hidden out of the public eye. But why do old-school cables reign supreme in today’s ultra-modern world? Shouldn’t technology have made balanced cables obsolete and brought in a new wave generation of wireless music gear? Well, the short answer is no. Balanced audio cables are simply more reliable than any wireless signal. They don’t rely on batteries, they ensure a stable connection, experience less interference, and transmit data just as far as a wireless signal could.
