With audio and COM over Cat5, we've run balanced analog as far as 600 feet in our workshop.

CAT Tails are all-black, all-analog units with clear, laser-etched numbers 1-4 on each tail. We chose the best in entertainment grade Neutrik connectors and AES3 grade cabling, and then housed the connections in ultra-rugged machined anodized aluminum that is so tough we have a lifetime guarantee. CAT Tails are compatible with all of our RATCAT series of products, including the SoundTools CAT Box, CAT Rack, and WallCAT. Mix and match for the ultimate in modular snakes.
