1m is fine, but 2m is pushing (or rather pulling) it
on 5 May 2012
I've had a number of cables from Amazon Basics now and I usually review them with five stars. I'm going to have to break a habit with this cable - not because of quality, because there aren't any problems there, but because of its design. I appreciate that some people may want coiled cables because they take up the slack between the two devices and don't leave unnecessary lengths of wire dangling, but in my opinion the resistance on this coil is too great. You can stretch it out to approach the 2m that is advertised, but it will always want to return to its coiled shape. For connecting two larger devices that's not going to be a problem, but many audio devices are light enough to be slowly pulled out of position once you let go and step away. If you're looking to bridge a gap of around 1m, you'll probably do fine, but if you want anything approaching 2m in length, you'd be better with a straight cable.
