Canare star-quad has been the cable of choice for years for installations. =
That said, shielded cable in general is meant primarily to reject electroni=

Truthfully 50 M is not that long a cable and flexibility should also be a c=

 noise at these lengths and so I prefer braided cores. Shield material not =
