Camden 500 doesn't have CAST, but the 500R8 and 500ADAT do. CAST must be used with a shielded Cat5 cable as it is 4 twisted pairs plus the shield.

Nope - both lines per Cat5 channel have the same ground referenced impedance. And full balanced-impedance noise cancellation is carried out on every pair.
