When is shielded CAT5/6 cable recommended?

SymLink bus and Dante network connections.  In addition to EMI and RF protection the shield also helps ensure the same ground potential between units.  Under normal controlled conditions it’s unlikely that using unshielded CAT5 will have negative results.

Audinate recommends using only CAT6 cable for Dante as it can support larger bandwidth than CAT5.
