    Thank you for asking.
    Can it be used as a S/PDIF coaxial cable?
    A shopper on Apr 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, any RCA cable can be used as a digital coax, as the cable is just a cable, nothing more than a conduit for electron flow. In general, you want a high quality cable with a larger gauge (i.e. not the 30awg or smaller cheap cables sold in retail stores), such as these or item #2681. However, if you need a digital coax, you'd be better of utilizing item #268, as you're not going to experience a difference
    are they sold as a pair or are they single and you need to buy 2?
    Adena D on Apr 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It is for one cable.
    Are these directional?
    A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If there are no arrows on cable sleeve the cable is not directional, even if there are arrows I don't believe this to be a critical orientation..........
    I need some RCA cables to use for the Pre-outs on my Pioneer Elite SC-LX901 to external Emotiva 3 channel amplifier. Will these work for that?
    New User U on Sep 19, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: They will work splendidly. I have changed out all of my previous RCA cables with these. Be advised, however, that these are single channel cables, so that you will need to acquire one for every channel you are connecting.
    can you use the cables from turntable to phone preamp & from preamp to av receiver ?
    A shopper on Sep 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It is best to keep cable as short as possible from turntable to phono preamp, length is not critical from preamp to AV receiver...........
    Any possibility of longer lengths in this Monolith cable....such as 15 foot perhaps?...
    A shopper on May 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I believe 12 foot is the longest they make. They are exceptionally built cables

    Very pleased
    For a critical pre-out connection between an Pioneer Elite SA-99 and Sim Audio P-5 Preamp, I had an old run of Hitachi LC-OFC cable. In the past I have A/Bed the hitachi against some high end cables and knew there were lacking in bass definition, overall detail. I have been waiting for something to replace it that was economical. I saw these, appreciated the construction details, and price.

    Cables are fantastic... quality of sound better in lows, mids and delicate highs. It is quiet and not coloring the sound either. I appreciate them being just OFC and no silver used for plating or conductors. High quality solder/connectors contributes to quiet noise floor.

    For value these are a 10/10 (5 stars :), hard pressed to improve on the sound much from here.

    Noticeable increase in bass and imaging, great value
    While these may be the most expensive RCA cables Monoprice has to offer, they are remarkably better than their premium line which I replaced w/these.

    I connected a 12' cable from my Project Debut Carbon turntable to my Denon AVR-3803. My speakers are Klipsch RB-3s and I do have a Monoprice 12" powered subwoofer connected to this system.

    Right away I noticed deeper bass while playing The Who's "Baba O'Reily (Decca pressing).

    While my system isn't anywhere near top of the line, it is a decent sounding system and it did improve with these RCA connectors.

    The sound stage increased in both width and height.

    Very happy w/my purchase.

    These are very good cables. A bit stiff but they have a very sure lock when plugged in. I have some of the black monoprice cables but do yourself a favor and spend a few more bucks with these.

    Very high quality in build and sound. No indication of right or left. For future reference sell as pairs and mark one as right.

    Beat $500 Cables
    I wanted to replace a set of budget Ixos cables between my receiver pre-outs and Krell amp. I decided to also try a set between my Marantz SA8004 SACD/CD player to receiver. I had a pair of Audioquest Panthers fornthat but got tired of replacing batteries on the DBS gadgets on them and was dubious of their performance anyway. The Audioquest cables retailed for about $500, but I bought them used for $195. Upon replacing said cables with the Monoliths, it didn’t take long to realize immediate improvement. For $30 the 3’ Monoliths revealed more detail, tighter, more focused bass, and frequency separation. These things are a steal. The cables were much heavier and well-built than I thought they be. And no more replacing batteries! I traded the Audioquest for a power cable at my Audio store. Just buy them and don’t look back.

    Exceeded Expectations
    These cables are great! I don't think I've come across a better cable for the price. I would highly recommend these. One word of caution: be sure 3 ft. will reach! It is surprisingly small, further shortened by the cable's rugged design and bulky tips. Will purchase again, if the need arises. 5 stars

    High end cables for low end prices.
    I've been in high end audio sales, installation and service for 30 years. I've tried all kinds of RCA cables and these perform better than others costing 4 or 5 times as much. Great value, I've steered a lot of my customers to these Monolith cables because I can't offer them a better cable for the price.

    Sounds like a new sub!
    I am using this for a Definite Technology Pro Sub 1000 to a Yamaha Aventage 1020 receiver. Wanted just a shorter cable but this made the sub sound better than ever. Plays louder and clearer.
