AES/EBU Cables

I make all of my own cables but I've never tried making some AES/EBU cables. I only need a couple so should I buy just any cables and be done with it, or is it worth it to make my own?

I also need a couple BNC cables. Would it be worth it to make my own or should I buy just any too?

If you can make good "analog" cables, you can make good AES/EBU cables.
BNCs are a bit different. The shield is usually crimped. If you have the tools, I think that you should be able to make them. If you're using the BNCs for RF, quality of the connectors (often) matters. Make sure that you have the correct impedance of the connectors, too.

If you have solderd up a mic cable it's basically the same thing but you have to use 110 ohm cable for AES/EBU. I'm assuming you need some BNC cables for wordclock, that's 75 ohm coaxial cable.
