The CAT Tails MX from SoundTools allows four lines of balanced analog audio, AES/EBU, DMX, and Clear-Com signals to be run down a shielded etherCON/Cat 5/6/7 cable hundreds of feet away. The CAT Tail is a fully passive unit that supports 48V phantom power and can be used for input directly into analog or digital consoles. Each channel is isolated, which means channel 1 can send a DMX signal while channel 2 is sending balanced analog all down the same shielded Cat 5 cable.

SoundTools CTMX Overview

The CAT Tails MX from SoundTools allows four lines of balanced analog audio, AES/EBU, DMX, and Clear-Com signals to be run down a shielded etherCON/Cat 5/6/7 cable hundreds of feet away. The CAT Tail is a fully passive unit that supports 48V phantom power and can be used for input directly into analog or digital consoles. Each channel is isolated, which means channel 1 can send a DMX signal while channel 2 is sending balanced analog all down the same shielded Cat 5 cable.

Additionally, the CAT Tails extension system consists of a male XLR sender and a female XLR receiving unit (both sold separately). This allows you to send four XLR audio signals thru a Cat 5/6/7 cable hundreds of feet away and convert it back to the four XLR balanced analog audio, AES/EBU, DMX, and Clear-Com signals.

Send or receive up to four audio lines down shielded Cat 5/6/7 cable

Snakes in a Bag

I have several 50' and 100' 8-channel snakes in my travel kit for larger jobs. However the SoundTools CAT Tails and CAT Boxes are ideal for smaller jobs with 8 mics or less, or Ambisonic 4-channel mics. I keep them in a bag small enough to loop over a cart handle, with enough Ethercon cable to run 25' (if possible) to 200' (if necessary) without large spools.
