    3.5 M to RCA?

    Has anyone found other 3.5 mm to RCA adapters, besides the ones sold here in the mp3car store?

    It's not that the ones in the MP3car store are bad, but I want shorter ones, not the 6 foot long ones that are the only ones in the store.

    Thanks

    Make your own?

    At least in that way, you can have any custom length you want!

    Thanks, but I am looking for some high quality, well shielded stuff, and while my carPC and audio skills are pretty good, I would rather buy well made cables than make them.

    Not shorter, but half the price anyways. I have ordered all my USB extension cables from this site. I would highly recommend them:

    I've used the gold plated one's from Radioshack and they are decent considering how cheap they are. Unless you want to pay for Monster cable quality (and the name) then get them at Radioshack.

    i got a bunch of cables off planetbob. If you want you can check with him or buy em off me. They're pretty much what you will be getting around radio shack or whereever, but not like monster.

    Why don't you just buy those adapters that plug into the 3.5mm slot and give you two rca jacks?

    You could then find the rca's you are looking for as high quality rca's are more readily availiable than high quality 3.5 to RCA cables.

    Those adapters just add one more connection that lower signal strength and quality, and can make for a less secure connection. I never found any high quality ones when I looked, and the ones I did end up trying were somewhat loose in the soundcard jacks.

    Here's a decent one for $6, but it's 5' long. I use that one for a portable player. NXG has several models from $3-20. I used several of the nx-0223 for a while on my carpc, no complaints. They're very flexible and of decent construction, best for the $ IMO.

    Don't fall for the Monster Cable marketing, they are a total ripoff. Actually, most cables in retail stores are, that's the biggest money maker. I was just in Best Buy today, they had a special on the Monster glass optical cable, "only" $99! I couldn't believe it. The salesman was telling me how well-shielded they were so the sound would be preserved. I could get a glass optical cable online for $35, and an expert wouldn't notice a difference on a $100k audio system. Hell, an expert probably couldn't differentiate between that and a $5 plastic cable for home audio.

    I could also go on about how USB cables are all gold-plated and going for $30-40 now for 6' lengths, but I'll just say that I'm glad I make my own for more like $2.
