        Comments about Sound Devices XL2 TA3-F to XLR Connector Cable Pair:

        These cables are fantastic for having direct outs from each channel of our SD552 to a multitrack recorder. I'm giving them only 4 stars instead of 5 because of the price. It IS a specialty product, so I guess there should be a premium paid for it. In any case, the cables are great.

          Comments about Sound Devices XL2 TA3-F to XLR Connector Cable Pair:

          I use these cables to convert my Sound Devices 702 line outputs from TA3 to full size XLR output. The TA3 cable end snaps and locks into place on the 702. Pushing a small button on each of the cables at the TA3 end of the cable releases them from the 702. When not using, these cables are compact enough to store in the front pocket of my Audio Bag.

          After accomplishing this conversion, I use a standard Peter Engh breakaway cable between my 702 and FS100 to simultaneously feed audio line input to the camera while dual sound recording while the 702. (make sure to setup camera XLRs to line input)

          Makes syncing dual audio a snap and provides for robust audio throughput system.

            I use the cable to come out of my mixer to ISO record each audio track.
            plug it in and the magic happens.
            do they come in more colors?

            Wished they could have been cheaper, but its only cable of its type on the market. I use it to send audio from a 7-series sound devices recorder back to camera on video shoots.

                      Used it to run direct outs from 442 -->breakaway-->inputs in RED ONE for a webisode shoot. They worked well for the situation.

                      I only wish there were more TA3 cables on the market, but Sound Devices is always reliable.
