I am new here so please forgive me for a vey basic question. I have a TASCAM iM2 in my possession. This is a stereo condenser microphone coupled to an ADC that connects to the the latest iPhone models via the dock connector.
I am in the process of dismantling it so that I can extend the physical distance between individual microphones. As you can see from the photo, there are 3 wires connected to each mic. I'm guessing that the black ones connected to the dock casing are ground, the yellow leads are probably a DC voltage to charge the plates and the red and white wires are probably for the actual audio signals.
I only want to extend the distance of each mic by 8 inches or so from the circuit board. I was planning on extending the wires using a cannibalised stereo audio extension cable (the ones with the 3-pin 3.5mm jack on each end). However, I want to extend the wires in a way that will not introduce much additional noise. One of the great things about this unit is that the ADC is so close to the microphones, so there is not much chance to pick up noise on the way. What would be the best way to shield this, or would the short distance I'm talking about not be a problem anyway?
