Good point.

This pretty much definitively answers the question I've had since OP. Thanks, I do genuinely appreciate your participation here in the n00bie subform.

The Sanken COS11 with 1/8" TRS connector has a 5.9 foot (1.8m) long cable. Are unbalanced cables longer than 18 inches & shorter than 6 feet subject to significant interference?
