Specs, schmeks!

I have used L-4E6S for 20 years with a ribbon stereo mic which  
requires a fair bit of gain at the mic pre. I have 35', 50' and 200'  
lengths. I mostly use the 35 and 50, often combined for 85'.

In all those years I have never had an RFI problem and only maybe  
three times EMI, when the cable was very near a wall wart.

Based on this, I would buy L-4E5C for your purposes without any concern.
