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

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



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

plugs


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!
