What is the Best Sound Tools Cable for long data cable runs?

SuperCat XM is specifically designed for long data runs.

Are CAT6a, Cat 7 and Cat5e interchangeable?

Yes to some degree. Cat6a and Cat 7 can be used when Cat5e is specified. Cat6a and Cat7 can typically be used interchangeably for short runs less than 30 meters. For long runs of 100 meters, Cat6a tends to be better than Cat7.

Is SuperCat XM as easy to wind and as flexible as SuperCat sound?

No, SuperCat XM has thicker wire gauge conductors and special insulators that are a bit stiffer. SuperCat Sound is our strongest and also lightest weight cable

What kind of shielding does your cable use?

The SoundTools SuperCAT XM cable uses has a braided outer shield and a foil shield for each twisted pair. We connect the shield to the RJ45 plug for continuity over ground.
