1.5ft Premier Series 1/4-inch (TS) Male to Male 16AWG Audio Cable (Gold Plated)
Connect sound components and other audio equipment with this Premium 1/4" TS Patch Cable from Monoprice!
This unbalanced cable uses 16 AWG stranded, pure copper conductors and employs copper braid shielding with 97.5% coverage to ensure that stray radio frequency and electromagnetic signals do not degrade the audio quality of your performance. The plugs are gold plated to provide smooth, corrosion-free connections as well as maximum electrical conductivity.
PROS: Solid and substantial cord
PROS: Sturdy build, classy look, no excess clutter at this length
CONS: None so far
But the primary reason is the value - high quality shielding and molding for connectors at a very low price.
Don't let the audio-video brick and mortar stores rip you off when you can get premium quality cables at Monoprice for a fraction of the cost.
I am using this cable for event audio recordings. The events and locations change every week so the equipment is constantly being plugged/unplugged so there is never any time for corrosion to build up. This cable is excellent for that since it is very sturdy and inexpensive enough that it's cheaper to replace than repair.
However if you intend to plug the cable in and leave it alone for many years, then get a standard metal plug (which costs more).
PROS: works great
PROS: I needed to connect my two chanels from my amp to a single signal, works flawlessly.
PROS: Great build quality. No Buzz.
My only complaint is that they are gold plated. I recently discovered that gold plating is useless unless you gold plate absolutely every input, output, and cable you own. I was gonna give them a 9 for that, but the price MORE than makes up for it, so these cables definitely deserve the 10.
PROS: Great sound quality and great build quality.
CONS: Gold plated.
PROS: Quality materials
CONS: None to date
