Ethernet Cable to Carry Audio data

Posted 01 September 2009 - 06:59 AM

Hi guys

I am wondering if there is any difference between ethernet cables.

I work with a group of people who use a fairly sophisticated sound system, which actually uses an Ethernet cable to carry audio data to the musicians on stage from the desk. (This is so the musicians can hear what they are playing as well as the rest of the band, and control the volumes themselves - they use something call Avioms).

Still, the last weekend, this cable ended up being broken in a few places.
Where I work, we have some CAT5E cabling, and I was wondering if this would do the trick (just in case we cannot get the original repaired in time).

Many Thanks


Quin

I would guess that they are the same. I would use a shielded cable.

Did you try a cat5 Ethernet cable to see if works?
