O2 with RCA jacks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I purchased an O2 with rear RCA jacks several months ago, my problem is the jacks are spaced too close together. I have been in contact with John at JDS Labs to see if he could make an O2 with wider spacing so I can use all my RCA's. I'm getting confused trying to find if the spacing has been changed. Has anyone purchased an O2 recently with rear RCA's? If so are the jacks spaced as to allow the use of "higher" end RCA interconnects. I am able to use some of my RCA cables with smaller/narrow barrel terminations but others that use say an Eichmann bullet plug do not fit. Any help would be great as I'd hate to order another and end up with the same spacing.
Thanks

Please disregard this post... it seems I am the only one to purchase an O2 with rear RCA's recently from JDS. I am going to order another O2 with wider spacing. BTW it is an incredible amplifier that I listen to daily.

Just source another panel and drill two holes in it. Ask JDS if they can supply you one, if not source it direct from somewhere like http://www.boxenclosures.com/category/category_product.html?cats__id=1071

Standard spacing for RCA jacks is 5/8"*, c/l to c/l.  If it's more or less than that, then it's non-standard.

 

Edit:

* I believe 15mm is the exact standard spacing.

Thanks for that info. I made some RCA interconnects using Esoteric Audio cable and Eichmann bullet plugs and they do not fit on the O2. They fit on everything else I have and I really enjoy the sound signature of them. I might try removing the back plate of the amp and making another. The only thing on the plate are the RCA jacks...
