Sommer Quantum 16-Pair Audio + AES/EBU Multicore Cable (Part number: 100-0451)

SOMMER EVOLUTION EMC AES/EBU/AUDIO MULTICORE For AES/EBU and DMX applications it would be difficult to find anything better than the Evolution EMC series. The impedance is precisely 110 ohms which is good news for anyone serious about digital transmissions.

This cable shares all the desirable features of conventional analogue multicores so can be used for analogue and digital together. Pairs are double shielded with a conductive AL/PT-foil under spirally wound copper. They are clearly numbered and use colour coded jackets (1-8 are grey. 9-16 are black etc.) Shielding is 100% so crosstalk should not be a problem.

The overall construction and PVC jacket material provides built in flexibility. This cable is suitable for mobile and fixed installation purposes. Available in 6 configurations: 2 pair diameter 8.5 mm Code 546-220 4 pair diameter 10.1 mm Code 546-230 8 pair diameter 13.3 mm Code 546-240 12 pair diameter 16.4 mm Code 546-290 16 pair diameter 18.6 mm Code 546-250 24 pair diameter 23 mm Code 546-300 Sold by the metre.



  • Each wire pair is individually insulated and shielded by a helical Cu mesh ( coverage)
  • Very low wire/wire capacitance
  • Highly flexible and reelable without twisting
  • In compliance with AES/EBU ()
  • Affordable price



  • Professional stage and live multicore for separate or central earthing
  • Creation of highly flexible studio looms, analogue and digital
  • Permanent Installation
