Tile says most of it. I am looking for ideas for shielded audio cable that I can solder into s 9 pin subd connector. I was thinking of finding some small audio cables from radio shack, then cut off the connectors and just use the wire, unless there is a better source for abot 4 feet of cable?

Thanks

How many conductors do you need??

Jameco sells a 4 and 9 conductor with shield.

RG-174 coax (or one of the Teflon variants) works for a single shielded wire.

Don't forget serial cables (9 conductors + shield) or parallel cables (25 conductors + shield). If you get creative, and need a DB-9 or DB-25 connector, and cut carefully, you can salvage the connector, but will have to destroy the rubber hood.

I wired all mine with CAT-5 and RJ-45s.  I used patch panels to connect all the voter equipment.  If I want to add another receiver, just plug it in the patch panel, set the levels and go.  Most people would gasp, but, knock on wood, haven't had any issues.
