Mogami 2552, 2549, or 2534 quad XLR mic cable for a 50ft run?

Which one of these would really be necessary for strictly vocals? Rearranged my room so now my Avalon is next to my interface & PC but is also now about 50ft from the mic. Or would it be smarter to run a shorter mic cable to the Avalon an run a 50ft TRS from the Avalon to my interface. Or with this 50ft range will either way even matter? Sole reason for moving the Avalon next to my interface is because I'm adding a headphone amp to the picture so.

The Mogami 2534 is definitely a good option when running signals long distances in an environment where interference is a concern. I take it you're in a home setup? Balanced line level signal is definitely less vulnerable to noise and interference, but long runs should be carefully planned so as to avoid anything that could potentially cause noise (such as large transformers in air conditioners and refrigerators). We offer all three of the above options, and I'd say the Mogami 2534 is definitely the most popular. Hope this helps.

For best sonics, place the preamp near the mic, use a short cable, a low loss cable.

I find the AES versions of these cables to perform best with longer lengths. Those have less hf losses.

Gotta love that "advice" from people who want to sell you stuff.

Indeed, as mentioned directly above, Mogami's 3080 (their AES/EBU offering) is an excellent choice.

Wow I wish I would of seen these replies before I placed my order a few days back, especially not seeing your website. Your pricings are way better than NYPROAUDIOCABLES. I'm in Orange County as well, so for all future cables I'll definitely be going through you. I ended up ordering the 2549 in a 50ft. length for around $60 =x
