AudioQuest Golden Gate 9.8' RCA-to-RCA Audio Cable
Took some time for these to open up. When I first attached, they were tight and very tinsely. After about 20 or so hours, they opened up beautifully. Great addition to any high end system. By the way, these in the beginning will still blow away any regular interconnects. Once they open up though, enjoy!
The quality of the cable is fine, I am taking a star off since I thought it would be normal 1:1 cable, it was, in fact a Y-type cable, so I could not use it to connect an RCA output to an RCA input. This is fine if you have a stereo jack you need to connect, but this will not work as an amplifier-receiver cable where inputs/outputs are not next to each other.
A:AnswerAll AudioQuest interconnects use solid conductors which offer superior audio performance but will be slightly stiffer than generic cables which use stranded conductors. Having said that, the Golden Gate cable is one of the most flexible cables in the AudioQuest product line and is quite durable overall.
