I'm searching through old posts right now, but can't seem to find anything on the subject.

I'm reading that adapters will introduce some level of degradation.

Disregarding price for the moment, which combination would result in a greater degradation of sound of the cable?

A] markertek mini-mini cable with a female mini/male dual RCA y adapter

or

B] Outlaw PCA with an female RCA / male mini adapter

Both are well regarded here, so I wanted to find out which one of these setups would worsen the properties of their respective cables more. Neither company seems to make their cables with a mini plug on one end and RCA plugs on the other. I'm going to try and call Markertek to see if they can make a custom cable with RCA connectors on one end.

Step 1: Plug power cable into wall. Step 2: Plug other end of power cable into....umm.... Step 0.5: Order something to power with power cable.

I doubt you would notice any sound degradation with an adapter...

How about a Bolder mini to RCA? No adapter needed. I don't have one (yet) but I've been told that it's the best mini -> RCA available.

The bolder is also expensive and does not bend very well. I would just get an adapter. Thats what I'm doing..
