We’ve been getting some nice cable from Shina – I mean China.
It has 4 conductors plus braided shield complete with XLR’s at each end.
I’m used to seeing the opposing pairs wired together then connected to either pin 2 or 3 of the XLR.
In other words, if the conductors were numbered 1 thru 4, normal wiring would bond conductors 1&3 together,
then bond 2&4 together.
The problem is, these cables have conductors 1&2 bonded together and 3&4 bonded together.
I thought, is it me or have we come up with yet another standard.
I took a look at Belden’s site and the Chinese have it wrong.
I thought I would get a second opinion.

What kind of opinion? Beyond how much I hate working with the stuff?
But that's probably just me.
