XLR cable options.....suggestions

I have to purchase (20) XLR cables for my new processor, wondering if there are huge differences from one brand/model to another in terms of quality ? Seems to be quite a number of alternatives from various manufacturers , certainly price wise. I only have a short distance from my processor to the amps, will probably purchase 1.5 meter cables just to be certain.


For reference I'll be using a Stormaudio 3D ISP.32 processor . For amps I have two Yamaha MX A5200 .


Thanks

Probably your best build quality for the price option.

Here's five options to choose from:

Sescom 6 foot M-XLR to F-XLR Canare L-4E6S star-quad at Makertek, $18.49.

Sescom 6 foot M-XLR to F-XLR Belden 1192A star-quad at Markertek, $19.95.

Sescom 6 foot M-XLR to F-XLR Mogami 2534 star-quad at Markertek, $31.95.

Markertek has free shipping with orders over $25.00.

Equivalent Blue Jeans Cable lengths:

Blue Jeans Cable 6 foot Belden 1800F (similar to Mogami W3173 Long Run AES cable) Balanced Audio Cable, $33.50.

Blue Jeans Cable 6 foot Canare L-4E6S Star Quad Balanced Audio Cable, $35.50.

Shipping is additional.

The cables are all well known, high-quality brands. The connectors are all well known, high-quality brands. The only thing that will set them apart from each other is the price and the quality of the assembly—mostly the soldering. Buy one of each, disassemble the connectors and take a look at the workmanship. Decide which one meets your standards. If you need something to compare the workmanship to, use this standard.
