Signal direction?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was looking at some stereo mini to RCA cables from Monster and Acoustic Research at best buy earlier today. I noticed they both have an arrow indicating the signal direction, pointing toward the rca ends. This means they want the signal coming in from the mini plug, and out from the RCA plugs, right ?

I want it to go in the opposite direction. from the RCA's to the mini plug.. Would this really make any difference? I know these are not the best cables, but probably better than the cheap and thin $2.99 cable.

Here is my intended setup. Output form my Santa Cruz sound card going into my OBH-11 via Monster interlink 400 MKII cable. Then from the Output of the OBH-11 into my Klipsch promedia 2.1's via some other cable.. Probably a cheaper rca to mini, and a mini to mini coupler.

But I doubt you'll hear much if any difference unless there's a shielding issue at either end. But it is worth it to do a search on the cable types you're talking about and figure out if you want to explore other cable choices.

I can't see what would make a phono-to-mini adapter directional.

They should work fine in either configuration.

Meh, you're new here, so I'll cut you some slack.

Pseudo-shielding. Shielded all the way up until the very last minute, then just left floating. Only works one way. True shielding, OTOH, works both ways.
