    I am not going to repeat myself here just because I told my story in another review. I was sold this product because Best Buy didn't have the connectors that I needed(1 male 2 female) so the employee told me that they don't make these anymore & sold me 3 male connectors & told me to plug these into the 2 males on one end & do the same to my surround sound speaker wires. When I turned on the TV my speakers were blasting so I used my TVs remote to turn down the volume, except now my remote control does not work on the volume. Not happy!

    Well RCA subwoofer cables rarely come in male to female, but usually male to male ends. So if your subwoofer cable is not long enough you need two cables and one of these. Too bad they don't come one to a pack. Because I only needed one. Of course you need 2 if you are extending some stereo equipment (left/right)! At least Best buy had them and I didn't have to order something and wait. Do they work? Absolutely. Well made? Sure.

    There isn't much to say about these. They work or they don't. These do. I realize they are gold plated for conductivity but I still think they are WAY overpriced for what they are and what they do. There should be a non gold plated version also available. Sometimes the cheaper product will work just as well as the high priced one. I would recommend this to a friend with reservations.

    I purchased these after moving my subwoofers to take advantage of better placement options and realized my current subwoofer RCA cables were no longer long enough. These worked great and were far less expensive and much faster than purchasing longer RCA cables (I have several shielded ones to spare). There is no appreciable loss in signal transfer and all works as it should.

    I was worried about having to get another cable to go a few more feet to my subwoofer, audophiles refer to this as a no no....one line to connect speaker to reciever. I had a long jump to span and had no choice but to connect two cables with these...I don't notice any drop out, clicks, or audio differences between the speakers.

    Not really that much to say about optical audio plugs other than that they did their job. They fit in the appropriate jacks on the electronics that needed connecting. Sound came out of the appropriate speakers as a result. No complaints. However I can't really see rating an opyical audio plug 5 stars no matter how goos it works. Its just a plug... So, 4 stars will do.

    My wife wears a Sennheiser hearing device at night due to my not liking the noise at bedtime. We have Direct TV and recently installed their new Genie system which does not support RCA plugs. I obtained an 8 point cable for the A/V port and then got the RCA connectors to hook up the device. Works well and we are both pleased.

    As the primary photographer and owner of Couture Bridal Photography fort Lauderdale Florida, I needed these couplers to connect my Macbook pro to a projector at a wedding I photographed in order to show the Images I had shot up to the first dance live to the guests. They worked flawlessly without any interference or loss of visual sharpness or static.

    Good Quality, Cost Effective Solution

    Gold plating has prevented degradation due to oxidation after a year of service. Insulation on barrel helps prevent accidental shorts/ground loops Allowed a simple extension without re-installing a custom cable run. May not be the ideal sonic solution, but better than many adaptors, and no noticeable issues

    I recently bought a new record player, which was great, but the main problem was the RCA cables were too short. So I went to Best Buy actually not even knowing if they would have what I was looking for but they did. I bought a pair of these to connect to another set of RCA cables so I could connect my player to my speakers. Works great!

    Before I found these at Best Buy, I was unable to listen to my record collection, as the cord on my player was too short to reach my stereo system. After connecting these, I was finally able to listen to Pink Floyd's "The Wall" as God intended.

    Saved me on buying an entire new cable. I needed to hookup a record player with rca cable to a small stereo system that has only headphones input. I already had the headphones to rca cable, just needed to hookup to the other rca.

    Inexpensive piece purchased at recommendation of employee along with the "Insignia™ - 6' 3.5mm Mini-to-RCA Stereo Audio Cable - Black" to hook up my turntable with my old Bose for iPod speaker. Works like a charm and so glad to use that expensive speaker again!

    Just bought a new Sony turntable. however the wires were not long enough to reach my receiver. and the wires from the turntable were not detachable, thus i had to get female to female connectors. now, everything is hooked up and I am enjoying my Music.

    Need some connectors for the RCA jacks on an entertainment chair for my son. Since i do most of my shopping for electronics at best buy I figure i would try these out. Instead of paying top dollar for the brand name I decded to give these a try. They do the job well at a 1/3 of the price. Became a believer.

    I used these temporarily to make 2 short sections of audio cables into one long one. They do what they were intended to do. But they were way overpriced. I bought a premium quality 16' cable on-line for less than I spent for these.

    I bought a new turntable and the pre-wired cable was not long enough to reach my receiver on my entertainment center. I have dozens of cables but not one female to male. These, along with a short cable, allowed me to install the turntable with no sound degradation.

    My precious ones didn’t last long. Forget the brand. Using them to run RCA cables from a receiver to a turntable for a quick fix connection. Works well. Doesn’t seem to distort or cause any issues at any levels of volume.

    These connectors work great for audio and video connections. They connect male to male cables and are very hard to find anymore. They worked great and saved me a lot of trouble replacing much wiring.

    My turntable unfortunately has the rca output wires built in. It’s a good distance from my receiver so I needed to extend it. Luckily Best Buy had these! They don’t seem to affect quality and they fit snugly on either end.
