      Comments about Livewire Advantage 16x4 Snake with XLR/TRS inputs and TRS Returns:

      First of all, this is a great piece of gear in terms of functionality. It is hard to find a snake like this with the Neutrik combo connectors. I love that it has 16 of them and 4 TRS returns for headphones. This arrangement works great in my small/medium-sized recording studio. There really isn't a whole lot to say about the product, as it is very simple. It does what it is supposed to do, however...

      My main gripe about this thing is that it imparts horrendous noise into the signal path from an instrument or mic to the audio device (Saffire Pro40) to which it is attached. I have yet to figure out why this is happening, but I can say definitively that it only happens when this snake is in the signal path. It acts as an amazing antenna with any guitar or bass that's plugged into it, very clearly picking up a number of local radio stations.

      If I figure out a specific cause, or a solution, I'll do a follow up here.

        This snake is simple, heavy duty, and sounds great. When you need that extra length to connect your gear, this snake will always come through for you.

        Comments about Livewire Advantage 16x4 Snake with XLR/TRS inputs and TRS Returns:

        I needed to buy a snake for my studio about a year ago and when it comes to studio work, the shorter the cables the better. I couldn't find any 25' snakes with enough inputs so i went for this one at 50' and it has performed flawlessly. I used it in my last band for practice twice a week and the 1/4" returns are great for headphone mixes. It's nice and heavy and has high quality neutrik connectors, should last a long time. The only thing I would like is a heavier duty strain relief on the box end,but it's only half size snake so it should be fine, will last a long time I'm sure.

          Functional, solid build quality overall but seems slightly on the lighter side. Works great live and in the studio. Would definitely reccomend.

          We needed to expand our sound system in a small meeting hall. This snake has more leads than we need, so it has room to expand. We are running a powered mixer for our church live praise band and this was just the ticket!

            after the first time out it did what it needed to do, if your in the market for a snake this seems as good as any. I don't know what the long term reliability or durability is yet, but like any thing, if you use and abuse it will break, use and take care i don't see this as a problem piece. feels well made, and sturdy, connectors look good. this should be a piece that i have for awhile.

              Itss very light weight compared to others i've used.

              they should have added a wire strain relief on the xlr/1/4" end, connected to the jacket like most others have, to keep tension off the wires when its connected to the mixer. The signal is clean and clear. lets see how long she last.

              As i was looking around for a cheap snake for a traveling group at my school, i came across this cheap in price snake. i go to a small school with a small sound budget so i was excited to see the price and was impressed with the reviews. i was even more impressed with the product when it got here. the soldering on the ends were pretty well done. it was a little heavy on the solder but thats how most snakes come. there is no metal support around either the box or the pig tail ends. but other than those two facts it is built very well. the connections to the heads were well done and attached well. overall for the price i would definitely recomend

                Have only used this product a couple of times, but it works flawlessly and helps to get the sound board farther away from the stageso our sound tech can do a better job of mixing for the main house speakers. Thanks

                Comments about Livewire Advantage 16x4 Snake with XLR/TRS inputs and TRS Returns:

                I purchased this at a good price for use in my home studio. It is really well built and although I expect it to be totally road-worthy, I'm using it for a fixed installation. All of the connectors are nice "neutrik" style and the bundled cable is rugged but flexible enough to handle easily. The cable ends at the fan-out are clearly marked and securely bundled. Couldn't ask for better at most any price. I did note a review from one user about hum problems. From the other post, I surmise they were trying to use unbalanced 1/4" instrument lines without the benefit of a DI box through the combo connectors. Of course, that's a no no, since most units would look for a low impedance input from the terminal XLR. For my use I havent had any hum issues through this snake.
