    This was an electronics/wiring deal that was too good to pass up, especially because I just bought an EBMM 10' braided wire for $20! (for recording only) so these are great!

    Depends. If you're using anything buffered it doesn't matter.

    Even then, it's just added capacitance, EQ to compensate.

    This is a repeat from July 4th so they must have leftovers lol. I bought it then!

    Just make sure you compensate for the extra impedance...

    Be nice to know what brand or supplier the cables were from to know if they are decent or not. Chances are they are generic, but probably still a killer deal. I love braided cables.

    Just cut them to length and re-solder them. Custom length. They'd be great for patch cables too. Damn, now I'm gassin a little : )
