I use RJ45 to DB-x connectors for my server connections, and some
recommend _not_ using twisted pair for RS232 because it can introduce
crosstalk that untwisted cables wouldn't. I have no idea if this is
true for RS232 or extending a mic/control head.
For 3', I don't think it would matter.
I used a flat 8 conductor phone cable to extend my D700 mic cable.
I think I saw some STP at www.bgmicro.com once upon a time. I can't
remember the length.
