        Comments about MuxLab 500025 MonoPro XLR (Male):

        I bought both this and the XLR female side, so this review is for both items. In short they work great, I've used some older audio to UTP adapters in the past with good results but they were for unbalanced connectors and were clunky. These have good build quality, and have a terminal style connect for the UTL cable, requiring only 1 pair of wires. I just put a couple of RJ45 ends on both sides as that suited my needs, but its nice to have the option to just go straight to whatever wire you are using.

        In this case I was working on an install where the original integrators thought it would be a good idea to run all their audio right on top of power, so I needed another way to feed audio from one side of a building to another. Running new cable was not an option, but luckily there was a spare cat5e cable which I was able to use and patch throughout the building to where the feed was needed. Using these adapters cleared up a long standing sound quality issue and left everyone very happy with the solution. For reference the total length of the cable used was around 500'.

          Comments about MuxLab 500025 MonoPro XLR (Male):

          Guess I didn't read up enough about the product before buying, but for those looking at the MonoPro XLR, do NOT assume that you can just use a Cat5e or Cat6 patch cable with it. You will need to cut, strip, and screw mount a few wires from the Cat5e or Cat6 cable for connectivity. Once you do, it works like a champ! I can also confirm that you do not need to use the MonoPro XLR in pairs, and that MonoPro's tech support is quite good. I ended up having to use a connection other than one stated in the manual, as I was connecting to an Air 3 Radio Console.
