I've read through this whole thread more than once and I'm still trying to figure out how to use Canare Star Quad (L-4E6S) to make RCA to RCA interconnects. How do you connect the 4 runs of wire onto each plug? Do you only use 2 of the 4 (one signal, one ground) or do you solder all 4 to the plug? Using all 4 seems like it would cause some kind of degradation in signal quality. I think the best answer is to use the two white wires, don't use the 2 blues for anything, and solder the braid to ground on only one plug (the signal or "upstream" component). Sound about right?
Any other suggestions/recommendations/links on making RCA interconnects, specifically on the wiring/soldering, would be appreciated! I'm having a hard time finding information. I think a lot of the links are outdated/dead.
Thanks for any help!
I only have one 3.5 to 3.5 cable, which is highly inconvenient being only a few inches long to connect my Zune to my car stereo.
I have some CAT5E cable, will that be fine for a simple task like this?
