    WBT [​IMG] (The ABSOLUTE best!)

    Other than WBT I think Scosche, Pheonix,Dayton, NXG etc all
    make very good phono connections don't forget Neutrix also.
     
  3. I like the Dayton Locking RCA's. I use them exclusively. I think I have used about 15 packs so far and have another 10 left[​IMG]

    Nathan,

    Go to parts express click on connectors.. they have every
    single connector you can think of... XLR,TRS,PHONO,SUB MINI,
    F,MOLEX etc! [​IMG]


    I had my order all ready for PE and I was going with WBT
    Midline locking RCA's and once again I backed out.. Geesh
    why can't I bring myself to spend $12.00 each for phono
    plugs [​IMG]

    I ordered 30' of 20awg pro mic cable (2 conductor + Sheild)
    3 packs of Dayton Locking RCA's (that's 12 connectors...),
    25' of Neon Blue Techflex 3/8", 25' of White Techflex 1/8",
    2 Neutrix Femal XLR Connectors, 8 Monster Cable Cable Pants
    and some other stuff.....


    Ohh yeah.... Gettin ready to do some mad cable fabbin y0!
