    What material is used for shielding?
    A shopper on Sep 4, 2017
    Are these copper wire cables - oxygen free?
    New User U on Jan 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The high-end speaker wire industry markets oxygen-free copper as having enhanced conductivity or other electrical properties that are supposedly advantageous to audio signal transmission. However, conductivity specifications for common C11000 Electrolytic-Tough-Pitch (ETP) and higher-cost C10200 Oxygen-Free (OF) coppers are identical.[12] Much more expensive C10100, a highly refined copper with silver impurities removed and oxygen reduced to 0.0005%, has only a one percent higher conductivity—insignificant in audio applications.[12] OFC is nevertheless sold for both audio and video signals in audio playback systems and home cinema.[12]
    Are the connectors entirely made of metal, or are they plastic?
    A shopper on Sep 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The ends are entirely metal and feel very solid, the colored parts are very thick resin plastic.
    Are these low capacitance wires . I need a 20 foot run for a turntable?
    A shopper on Mar 19, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: For a length of 20-25 feet, I rather suggest the Coaxial Cable #2683, provided that your turntable has a built-in preamplifier. There wouldn't be any capacitance problem with that kind of cable.
    If not, it's not advisable to use such length of wire.

    Connected my Schiit Magni/Modi combo and it works great.

    It's a bit stiff, which is fine. Longer ones tend to be less firm.

    I chose it because of the shorter length, which I prefer.

    I ordered 2 sets of this cable. It's 3 feet of RCA male on each end - 2 connectors on each end - 2 cables hooked together. It's the standard white & red, for analog audio connections.

    This cable is much thicker than my previous cable. The tips are gold-plated, which is also an upgrade for me. The connectors are pretty stiff, but I don't plan on connecting/unconnecting them much - but if I do have to, they'll go - again just stiff. But better to be stiff than too loose and fall out (although that would be easily fixable by a bit of crimping!).

    Now...why 6 out of 10? Well, one of the sets of this cable is perfect. However, the other set arrived broken. The positive connector on one of the ends of the red cable has a loose connection somewhere inside, even though it looks physically perfect on the outside. I can't fix it.

    I suppose I could return this cable but considering I'd have to pay for return shipping, it's probably cheaper and easier simply to order a new one for roughly 2 bucks - especially if I'm ordering other cables at the same time (to defray the shipping cost).

    I have used Monoprice for several orders over the past several months and this is the first time I have received a bad cable. But I have received so many other cables from Monoprice, all of which are perfect...and even one of these that I ordered was perfect! I'm not completely surprised that after so many cables, I finally got a bad one - it's almost expected - and again it's not a deterrent (especially since it was on a $2 cable - if this happened on a more expensive cable, then I'd seek out the return process).

    So all in all, I'm still happy. Read my other reviews they're all 10's. I'm still a Monoprice faithful customer.

    Not the worst - Not the best
    Am I the only one who had a ridiculous amount of trouble trying to get the connectors on the inputs? The prongs are way too thick compared other pro-audio cables, which is why it requires too much force to separate them when pushing onto the inputs. This can be very bad for components with a weak backplate supporting the inputs. Let this be a fair warning:
    If you notice your inputs or backplate pushing in while trying to connect - STOP - and return them. You run the risk of damaging your gear by applying too much force.

    PROS: Decent quality. Short 1.5' length is good for short connections behind a mixer to a sound card, etc.

    CONS: Prongs are unnecessarily too thick causing too much force needed to slide onto the inputs.

    Too tight? Not mine!
    Cable works fine once installed, but the loose connection does not inspire confidence. I wonder if Monoprice loosened the fit in response to reviewers complaining that they were too tight. Good quality interconnect cables are SUPPOSED to be very tight! I've have other cables from other manufacturers that have seen a lot more use than these from Monoprice, and I still really have to wrestle with them to connect or disconnect them. That's the way it SHOULD be.

    Looking at the way the RCA connector is constructed, it is easy to see why they became loose. The outer ring of the connector is comprised of 6 "petals" that are angled inwards toward the center. However the petals themselves are constructed of rather flat pieces of metal, so they have very little structural rigidity. It is easy for the petals to flex outward, thus loosening the connection.

    Most cables that you get included with your audio gear either have a full circle instead of the 6 petals, or they have 4 petals. Having 4 petals instead of 6 means each petal has more of an arc to it, and is thus much harder to bend.

    I would like to see Monoprice reduce the number of petals on their RCA connectors to 4.

    Or perhaps Monoprice just got a bad batch from their supplier. I did notice that the connectors on my cable do not match the ones in the photograph. They are very close, but in the photo, you can see that the inside edge of the connector is beveled. Mine is not beveled, and appears to be made of much thinner metal. In other words, there does not appear to be enough metal there to put a bevel on. The petals in the close-up photo are much thicker than the ones I actually received.

    PROS: Excellent quality cable, but...

    CONS: While the RCA connectors were somewhat tight to begin with (although not the tightest I've used), they loosened up very quickly during auditioning of several pre-amps. Now they are so loose that they are very easily removed. How easy? So easy that I could not attach just one of the pair of connectors on a cable. I would insert the left connector, then when I tried to position the right connector, the left would slide off. Only way I could get them to stay was to insert both at the same time.

    Bought 2 of these

    One for a 6 CD changer/player to the receiver and one for the FiOS box to the receiver

    A nice little piece of information I figured out: You can run HDMI from the FiOS box to the TV and then still use the red and white RCA outputs to connect to older receivers that don't have Optical or S/PDIF like mine. You don't even have to play with any settings on the FiOS box to do it, it just works.

    PROS: Work great and the sound is very clear

    Just the right length

    CONS: The connectors are pretty tight to get on, but they'll definitely stay where they are after that. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the boxes that these are connected to on top fell off and these stopped it from hitting the ground.

    Works great!
    I use this as a "jumper" between my pre-amp and amp. Works great.

    PROS: Quality

    'A' for Effort. 'F' for Functionality.
    I don't like them.

    PROS: The length. They are color coded.

    CONS: The outer jacket sections are too fat. It's a tight squeeze getting the cable's conductors into the right hole. Often two hands are needed to keep one end from popping off because of the stiffness.

    Also the cable tension is high and has a tendency to loosen the input jacks. A few times that's happened. I've had mine for almost a year and they never softened.

    Too tight!!! Do not buy
    One side was alarmingly tight but I managed to get it on, and the other was so tight that there was absolutely no way that it was going to fit. No matter of muscle was going to get it to go, and I wasn't about to damage my expensive equipment for a cheap cable. I thought that if I just gently widened the teeth it might work, but apparently they had no give because one of them snapped off with just a little bit of pressure.
    To their credit, Monoprice was extremely prompt in their response and I got a refund within a day. I didn't want a replacement because it seems like other customers have had the same issue with this product.

    PROS: Didn't discover any

    CONS: Connectors didn't fit!!!

    Used item?
    I think this was a previously used item. The connectors were loose fitting on (all) my boxes I tried them on. Had to bend them in. Not good.

    Not for me
    Never heard them because the RCA's are so tight I couldn't connect to my amp, preamp, and CD player. Was afraid I'd damage my components.

    PROS: none

    CONS: RCA's so tight, I couldn't use them
