        Comments about ENERGY TRANSFORMATION SYSTEMS ETS PA205 Series 3-Channel InstaSnake Phantom Power Compatible XLR Audio Baluns:

        Use these constantly and haven't had any problems yet. Love the fact I can send or receive multiple channels through a skinny cat 5 cable. Beats running 3 or 4 separate mic lines.
