WTB Belden Cable 8760/82760
Hi, I would like to buy a few meters/feet of this shielded cable.
It goes under the Belden catalog #8760 or 82760 (I could also live with the 8761/82761), and it's almost impossible to find in Italy.
The only place that carries it sells it in 150 m. spools (500 ft), enough to last twice my expected lifetime!
If anybody has some length to sell, I could pay for it via PayPal and it could be shipped via mail.
Thanks for your help.

Can you post a pic of the cable?
I have many cables but they are not cheap, all MIL specs and better than Siltech G3 cables. ;)

Best regards,

Audiofanatic ;)

Audiofanatic, you can find all the specs and a drawing for this "Paired- Audio, Control and Instrumentation Cable" (balanced) on the Belden site (
I need it for internal cabling between different sections/boards of my DIY projects.
It's not suited nor do I need it for making HiFi interconnecting cables.
The nice things about it are that it's 100% shielded (continuous ribbon) and it has a balanced design with a nice stranding.
If you have something that firts this description and the intended use, please let me know.

Can anybody help? Any substitutes with similar specs?

I can't open the link to the cable you need.
Can you copy and past the pic of that cable?

If I where you, I'd forget about tinned copper and go for silver plated copper, all my interconects are made with this cable and I had Siltech G3, MIT, Audioqwest, KimberKable, etc. etc.

This cable is the best!

Let me know if you want to try this cable, send me a private mail.

Best regards,

Audiofanatic ;)
