    $55 shipped. They'll need some cleaning up (lots of labels), but I am gonna need something to bring the I/O panel 'round front on the M-520 because it will be pretty much inaccessible once I scoot it into position...plus I've got an acute case of patchbay envy after seeing post #15 in this thread...

    we're living parallel lives cory!
    i just ordered 2 of the very same units last week. fedex says they left Syracuse for Montreal in the wee hours of this morning.
    I also bought a box of 100 neutrik NYS352 rca plugs (you can save BIG buying these in bulk). my fingertips are slightly burnt from all the cable-making i've been doing.

    Pete...yeah...I have made so many 8 and 16 channel TRS snakes and insert snakes over the past year...I'm not sure I've got it in me to make them up in RCA flavor... Plus I find RCA's the most difficult to work on.

    What are you using for cable?

    Anybody know if these are any good?

    The neutrik cables i use are very easy to solder. i tried some of their high end made-in-Liechtenstein ones but they were a bit tougher to solder; uncomfortably tight to plug into the m520; not to mention mega pricey.
    I only had to pay something like 52cents each for the NYS352.
    For the cable i ended up using a Canadian-made type called Clarity by Delco. The store i bought from was out of Canare.

    Yeah okay...I made some custom insert snakes (both send and receive off of one balanced 3-conductor run...more tidy and cuts cost) for my PE-40's using the NYS352 connectors...I do like those connectors...really nice for the price.

    I can get the 352's from Redco Audio for 0.68US...ugh...do I really want to do that...?

    The cable that you are using though, is it 2 or 3-conductor cable? I'd need to make a mess of snakes ideally and I can't see spending $$$ for balanced multi-channel cable if I only need two-conductor y'know?

    Got mine locally

    I picked 2 of them a few onths ago at the local "surplus gizmos" store. $10 each

    Be careful what solvent you use to remove the tape with (try windex to start with) as that the paint can be removed....

    Ethan...what surplus gizmos store was THAT?!?!?!

    I must patronize!

    I've been successful using iso alcohol to get label goo off of most stuff, but like the carpet cleaner says, "test in an obscure location first for color fastness".

    Not much audio there. But I did pick up a bunch of polystyene caps....
