    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for some good interconnects to use with my new Outlaw 950/7100. I have used Radio Shack Gold in the past and have been pleased. My only concern is how tight they fit on the RCA jack. When your switching components around for in home trials it can become a pain.

    Has anyone compared the Radio Shack connectors to Outlaw or Blue Jean? Outlaw has a locking RCA, what does that mean?

    BTW, Radio Shack will now be carrying the monster line.

    Thanks Bob

    Locking RCA means the outer barrel of the plug turns to tighten/loosen the grip on the jack.

    I have some of the Outlaw PCA's. The build quality is good, but I really hate the locking barrel. Makes the connector really bulky, and with the already quite cramped back panel on my pre/pro, are a pain to connect & disconnect. No experience with the other specific two you mention.

    I ordered the cables today from BJC. I spoke with Kurt the owner today, very nice guy. I spent about $40 more than I would in Radio Shack but I was able to get the exact length I need. Plus I will not have to deal with tight connectors.
