John Moore:
The digital signal of the DMX line, and they were using std. mic cables for DMX was noticeable during load in and setup. It did seem to go away once the show started , but that may have been attributed to us not noticing due to volume, however even during the performer change outs, it was not there...really strange but next time we will separate DMX by some distance from the CAT5/6 cables. A Shielded CAT5/6 most likely/probably/would reject the interference for sure.

While this may not be the right forum for discussion, I must say, John, that the DMX being next to or on top of AES50 cabling will NOT do what you're claiming.

Why?  Because the signals are digital, if there was any corruption of the AES data you would lose word clock sync.  Shit would stop working.

The demodulated DMX noise was getting in somewhere, but it wasn't in the AES50 run...

Jared Koopman:
We used Belden 1583A for our install. FOH run is around 100 feet to the first S16, and another 50 feet or so to the second S16 on the opposite side of the stage.

Has worked rock solid so far, no crackles, pops, or loss of signal outside of user error. I know its not a touring solution, but for install it has worked.

Using the multi version of Gepco CT504HDX with Midas with no troubles.

Jonathan Kok:
Two S16's, Two X32's, one P16D, eight P16M.

S16-->S16-->X32 FOH-->X32 Record, using generic Cat5e UTP (install, through conduit). Roughly 100-150' runs. Also, X32 FOH-->P16D-->8X P16M, also generic C5eUTP. Add patch cables at FOH and the P16's (connected via Neutrik NE8FDP's).

No problems. Though figuring out how to get returns from Record to FOH took a bit of thinking.
