The USB 3.0 standard specifies that cable lengths be no more than 3 meters (about 9 feet). If the LC device is mounted in the back of the room near the ceiling this presents a problem for connecting the wireless USB Microphone Base Station. This extension cable provides active signal enhancement which allows a cable length of 5 meters (about 16.4 feet). The base station plugs into the active head of this cable and the tail plugs into the recorder.
This product is rated for USB 3.0, 5 Gbps transfer speeds, 5 meters (16.4 feet) length.
