OB-6 Output Cable Type

Here is a stupid question (not really...) what are you guys using for cables on the output of your OB-6? Right now I'm using 2 X 1/4" Mogami Microphone Cables (Balanced) and seems to be working just fine, but.. should I consider switching to instrument cables (Unbalanced) instead?

Your guidance and constructive suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Monster Performer 600 Instrument Cable - 6'.  Straight into my Audient ASP-880 Channels 1 and 2. These are unbalanced cables and it sounds gorgeous.

Unbalanced.

As a maker of my own cables (and builder of boutique electronics), brand and features don't matter a whole lot. Mogami is the best for price/quality of components (including 'shielding' and separation). Just avoid anything "tuned", like some purchase for guitars. You don't need a pro jazz cable or something else with unnecessary capacitance. Just try not to bundle or run the audio cables near the power cord.
