Remote Audio CABETASD633 Reviews

Solid build

I use my 633 for single camera interviews and run-and-gun work. I need a cable that sounds good and can take a beating sometimes. Remote Audio has made a great, robust cable. The connection between the camera end and the rest of the cable is solid and releases easily and the 90 degree BNC out for TC is a nice touch. At 20', the cable is a little short at times, but it is by no means a deal breaker. It might seem pricey at nearly $300, but I will tell you it is worth the investment. It quickly became a vital part of my 633 kit.

Almost Perfect

Remote Audio makes quality breakaway cables. I've used them with Sound Device 302's for many years with perfect performance. The addition of timecode in this breakaway is a must for most shoots these days. I can't understand why this cable would only send timecode and not receive it. I would return it but there isn't an option on the market that I could find that would send and receive timecode. I want it both ways!

Just Right

This cable is perfect for production work, although the TCG is one direction only (from mixer to camera). The cable seems to be engineered with the working professional in mind, it is pliable yet durable with the only exception being the headphone jack on the camera side which feels a bit flimsy compared to the rest of the cables.

Great!

Outstanding cable, super useful in the field.

633 isn't complete without this

If you have a 633 this is must have. Plain and simple. Even if using wireless hops, there is always a need for a wire. Having the added Timecode built in with a return is absolutely amazing.

Great product

It's clear that this was made for a professional sound mixer. The length is perfect, it has the carabiner on the mixer side for strain relief and the velcro strap on the other side does the same thing for camera and also wraps it up at the end of the day.It's a cable, and it passed audio and timecode just like a decent cable should, so I don't have much to add there. It's worth the price tag.

Necessary for 633

This is a must have when doing any kind of locked-down interviews - allows you to send timecode, a LR mix as well as monitor the camera return. The cable is very sturdy and well built, and feels like it’ll be able to take some abuse out in the field. Get one!

Expensive, but worth it.

This works great and provides exactly what you need for run-and-gun shoots or interview setups. I wish it was cheaper, but it does seem high quality.

question

Is the RTN on this cable really mono? The Sound Devices 302 and 633 both expect stereo return.
Asked by: Scott V.
The return on this cable is mono, using a balanced (stereo) 3.5mm connector which is compatible with the Sound Devices units.

Would this work on Zoom f8n or even Mixpre-6II?
Asked by: Gustavo
The Remote Audio ENG Breakaway Cable with Timecode for The Sound Devices 633 has a 5-pin LEMO connector for timecode to accommodate the 633, but the Zoom F8n uses BNC for timecode input/output and MixPre-6 II both uses 3.5mm for timecode.input/output. Other than that, the XLR and 3.5mm connectors on the Remote Audio cable are compatible with both recorders.

question

Will it work with Sound Devices 302 as well? I Know theres one Breakaway cable intended for FP33 and SD 302, but I would like to know if this one has same capabilities as the mentioned and also has timecode in it.
Asked by: Fernando B.
It will work as an audio output tethered to camera via XLR. But the timecode side of things will not be usable as the 302 does not have a timecode function. The return into the 302 should work, but I've never personally tested it.

question

I have a Sound Devices 788T and want to get a break-away that also sends timecode. This looks like the only one. Will it also work with the 788T? By looking at the picture, I can assume it will--with minor adaptation. 1) I already have TA3 to XLR cables for the mixer outputs and 2) would just have to adapt the 1/8 TRS back to TA3 or XLR and use an input channel to monitor return--or get a switcher box and use the 1/8 straight out. Am I making all the right assumptions here? Safe to buy? :-)
Asked by: Tommy S.
Can't see why it wouldn't work the way you've described. You could also have Pro Sound or Gotham Sound in NYC make you a custom end for the 788 for this.
