1.5ft Premier Series 1/4-inch (TS) Right Angle Male to Right Angle Male 16AWG Audio Cable (Gold Plated)
1.5ft Premier Series XLR Male to RCA Male 16AWG Cable (Gold Plated)
An XLR to RCA cable converts a balanced audio signal into an unbalanced signal. This is good for sending audio signals from an XLR source to an RCA input, or vice versa. Regardless of direction, the result will be an unbalanced signal.
This is a premium quality cable with gold plated connectors at each end. The cable is made with two 16 AWG oxygen-free copper conductors, in a twisted-pair arrangement, and is shielded along the full length with copper braid with 97.5% coverage.
This cable uses the standard pinout with pins 1 and 3 of the XLR connector wired to the shield of the RCA plug and pin 2 of the XLR connector wired to the tip of the RCA plug.
- 16AWG Stranded Copper Wire Conduits.
- 97.5% Shielded Connections
- Gold Plated Connectors
- Metallic Graphite Colored Connector Housings
- Molded Strain Relief Boots.

So, why only three stars? XLR pin 2 (low) and the cable shield (XLR pin 3) are connected together at the RCA end, a potential source of ground-loop issues (in other words, hum). From my research, the best way to wire these kinds of adaptor cables to avoid hum is inot/i tying the cable shield and the low conductor together at the RCA end, instead wiring XLR pin 3 to RCA shield and insulating the cable shield at the RCA end. Short of modifying the cables (which, needless to say, is strictly at your own risk and will void warranties), buying a few cables and testing them first to ensure they will perform noiselessly in your application before committing to a larger quantity is highly recommended.
PROS: Very good quality for the price.
CONS: RCA end is miswired.
