Cable Mountain? A mountain at each end of the cable, that's for sure!
28 July 2018
Yesterday - just after I had spent an hour carefully sanding away at the side of one of the jack-plugs - I wanted to give just one star. Now, after a night's sleep, my glass is half full rather than half empty! Those jack-plugs are MONSTERS! ... but the good news - for me - was that much of the bulk is pointlessly obese plastic moulding ... so I was able to flatten out one side quite significantly without actually breaking through the structure of the plug. I wouldn't have bought this cable had I really understood how fat the plugs were ... as some other reviewers were trying to warn me!
I bought this cable to pair with a 5m USB cable which charges a new soundbar. It all seems to work fine ... in the end! ... so 3 stars on reflection! ... but this cable's plugs belong in an age when people liked to show their friends big fat cables plugging into big fat audio boxes ... not an age when manufacturers want to make everything as slim and elegant as possible. I was caught out by a slightly (!) recessed socket array! Go with the modern style, Cable Mountain! (but I suspect that these jack-plugs might be your last-generation stock, anyway)
