Used 'em on both sides (in the rack tied down into the Axe and on the board into the MFC). Perfect solution!
+1 for Vafam sound. Hans has been awesome to work with and I have two of his customized panels for my Axe II and general rack setup. Top-quality, and the price is very reasonable.

I have been on the wait list for more MFC's to be sold and it's only the Mark II FAS makes anymore. I believe the guy at FAS said the new controllers come with a conversion kit so the new MFC works with a non-Mark II Axe Fx. Is there anything else I need to be aware of while waiting to purchase the latest MFC? I had the impression the MFC Mark II will be ready to use with the first edition AXE 2 once it arrives......?
It'll work just fine. A standard Ethernet cable will plug into the new 101 and the Axe you have.
Alternatively you could get a breakout box like I have and then use Ethercon cable between your 101 and the breakout box, and then a normal Ethernet between the other side of the box and your axe. This is kind of the opposite to what I have done.
Hope this helps
I have a stupid question here. I got my Axe II and MFC second (or third) hand. They are original non MKII style.
Why are people doing what is suggested in this thread? I am confused..as usual..
The reason people have switched to ethercon is for its durability as opposed to ethernet cables. The ethercon connection is similar to an xlr connection in that there is a casing around the insert itself. This gives you a locked in connection and leaves no chance for the tiny little clip on the cable to get snagged on something. It does not however give any different results in terms of power or data. Its simply an internet cable on steroids.
