    These connectors look good in their cloth jacket and they are very sturdy. After reading countless magazine articles telling me to switch from cheap cables, I decided to try these to replace my Acoustic Research RCA interconnects which connected my CD player to my 25w amplifier. Golden Gate costs 3X as much. There was an immediate improvement in the sound-- bolder in the mid and lower frequencies. A noticeable harshness in the vocal range that was there with the AR cables vanished with these. Listening was done with Shure 840 headphones. Since these cables make a snug fit to the RCA jacks, I wouldn't recommend them if you frequently connect & remove connections, due to possible damage to the jacks.

    It's no secret that if you get Hi-end equipment, such as power amps, you won't find a place for hdmi cables. That is because sound is best transmitted via analog cables. Sure, hdmi can do both, but for sound, analog is still king. Good cables should not add any color to a sound system, just as good speakers should not. That is why I chose these cables. They do the job without adding anything. If you can afford them, get them. They are well worth the price without breaking the budget. I love them!

    While this RCA cable looks and feels nice, I found no additional improvement to the sound of my speakers vs using the cheaper $15.00 cables I already had. I literally had my wife switch the cables back and forth without me knowing and could not hear any audible difference. Maybe if you're looking for a fancy cable and can be fooled by a placebo effect, then this is the cable for you.

    It's a Y-type cable, not individual cables.

    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.

    Bought these to replace older cables going from my arcam dac to midrange denon avr. To my surprise, the sound stage on my Martin Logan Motion 12's opened up slightly and the bass became tighter and more accurate. Would highly recommend upgrading if you are in need of new cables or want a cleaner sound from an entry level audiophile setup.

    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!

    Stereophile claimed great sound improvements from these "not too expensive" interconnects. They replaced the typical interconnects that come with components. The sound is much better just as Stereophile claimed. I have replaced all my interconnects now with these "Golden Gates".

    I bought this RCA cable to connect my CD player to my preamplifier. The RCA connectors fit snuggly on the RCA jacks. The audio is very clear with plenty of detail. I haven't noticed any loss of the highs, the bass is tight.
