Not good enough.
on 25 September 2013
I thought these cables would be a cheap and cheerful way to connect up a secondary hifi system.
O.K. they are only just over £5 for a 1 metre stereo pair but unfortunately this is reflected in the quality of the RCA phono plugs used. They will not fit over the terminals on my amplifier, very, very tight. So much so that I did not force them on for fear of either splitting the plug body or damaging the amplifier phono sockets.
I tried all the plugs on all the phono sockets - all the same - so not a rogue plug and other better quality plugs fit perfectly.
The cable appears to be quite good quality, it's marked 99.99%(or thereabouts!) oxygen free copper. It's just a shame that better, stronger metal bodied, plugs are not fitted, they are available and not expensive either.
Returned for a refund.
