Any HOSA authorized dealer will order them for you ($3.50 each).

I have some coming from West LA Sound and will post my impressions later. I'll have a friend help me to blind A/B test the adapters to see if there is any sonic degradation with my Kimber mini to mini.

I would stay away from the adapters with any plastic. They have alot of static due to flex, and usually have inadaquate connection which inturn gives you horrible microphonics in everyway.

Hmmm...makes sense I guess but the true test will be in the listening. You just never know until you try...

I did own several of these, and I gave you my insight. I agree with you, buy them all, and see for yourself what the best plastic right angle is. Then, do intensive listening with all your audio equipment, and write a big review. You can call it the mini right angle adaptor shootout. Inquiring minds are dying to know!

Andrew,

After your experience what are you using for an IC?

Thanks!

Phil

I use a markerec mini-mini everyday, and expect to pick up a Kimber RCA mini by the end of the year. I have heard the Kimber Mini, and it is good if you have the right equipment. Otherwise, the Kimber might sound to sterile, analytical, and bland if your equipment has no color. Checkout my profile.
