We just received significant quantities of all our DB-25 cables. We have 5′ and 10′ versions of cables with DB-25 to TRS, XLRM, and XLRF. We also have a DB-25 to DB-25 in a 10′ length. The DB-25 connector is all metal with full shielding. The pinout is standard Tascam analog wiring. The fanout has been reinforced with double shrink tubing and every conductor is insulated with shrink tubing inside the connector as well. The construction on these cables is very rugged and it’s an obvious upgrade from the low-end plastic cables flooding the market.
One of the most common uses of DB-25 cables these days is with the Presonus 16.4.2 and 24.4.2 mixers. They have direct outs on the back panel in banks of 8 channels using a DB-25 connector. So, it’s easy to connect to a personal mixing system, external recording device or any other analog device that needs to be interfaced with the direct outs from the Presonus Studio Live mixers.
