Studio construction...cable advice

So, I am taking a (small) plunge.
An apartment came available near our house and I decided to rent it so I had a dedicated space taht wasn't just a room in the family house. Now this is Japan, but it is 30 square meters, with 2 rooms.

The bonus. A friends mother is giving me their Yamaha sound proof room because their daughter no longer plays piano and they want it out of the house. It is completely sealed, has a nice window, and all that. There is also a ligh, fan, and 1 plug-in jack inside. I realised do I get the cables in when I want to record something.

I called yamaha and they said they could add the cables when they rebuilt it in the new space.

So the question. What do I need in the wall? It is a 1 time build and no real option to add more later. It is going to be a small space, so don't see needing more than 6 mics at any one time. Also monitoring, etc needs to be considered.

I was looking at a Peavy Audio Link, but they have a fan in them and I don't want the noise.

Would something like this work or is just a snake of cables a better option? I would have to add something for the monitoring to the snake though right?

Thanks for any suggestions and tips you may have.

But if I drill holes in the sound proof room, which is a prefab deal...the Yamaha gents will put it together, and it is apperently pretty well sealed, hence the sound proofing, wont this open up holes that will let the noise out. From what I have read even the smallest breaches will make a pretty big difference? They said that they can add cables if I prep them before they bring it by, so I think they place it into the walls of the room.

Am I mistaken here?
