    Best quality RCA Plugs and cables for building RCA's

    Can someone suggest some good RCA plugs and cable? I'm looking to make my own RCA cables but need to find out where to buy and what the best quality cables and plugs are. I don't want to cheap out on these and want the best quality I can find.

    I have found that the stinger series 8000 is the best from my experience


    but buying raw material to make my own , I think this is something that has been popular in recent times

    not sure it is better
    may cost less

    We also use canare star quad and rean connectors.

    If you decide to buy some high quality cables instead of building them without paying way too much, contact me.

    I also used Canare Star Quad. I did it in a baby blue and used a high end black chrome Vampire Wire RCA ends.
