RE: Good Question

It depends of what make/model analog XLR interconnect cable it is. The established specification of a balanced AES/EBU XLR digital cable has a wide-range characteristic impedance, so perhaps the specs of your specific analog XLR interconnect cable falls somewhere between those extremes. The major difference between a typical analog XLR cable and an XLR digital cable is an AES/EBU digital cable tends to feature filler a.k.a spacer rods that act as a former for a twisted pair, in order for the conductors to have a more consistent and precise geometry from end to end. BTW, what's the length of the cable, and what make/model is it?
