CAT 5 wire for audio and etc...
Here is a thought, I am not sure if it has been brought up before.
Can we use cat 5 wire for most wiring needs. Is it poor quality compared to RCA and other stuff?
Cat 5 wire should be of high quality copper because it is made to carry data...right? Also the twisted nature of cat 5 should provide some shielding..right?
Therefore, instead of buying RCA cables and stuff, couldn't we just solder some connectors on to some cat 5 wire and use that instead?
Some possible uses would include, USB extension, low voltage sound, extension of keyboard wire, IDE cable extensions and maybe many more.
What say you?
