no play, so a more constant, solid connection. In thoery anyways. Also, no ware on your frames from the Clips. Probably less of a pain in the ass to get in and out of a clip cord bag. Acctually, im pretty certain of that, cause that shiz is a pain in the ass. I like traditional cords. The frames never ware too much, and you can easily and cheaply replace your rear post is you need to after a fairly long time. I do however, seem to destroy a cc about every 4 months somehow. I wish i knew why? I bet rca and similar connections ive seen are all really great, but i would miss the cc. I also wonder what effect the lack of play would have on your work. I doubt it would make a difference, but i bet it would feel wierd at first.

i used rca connections but the wire always seemed to snap somewhere down the wire or at the jack connection.
i know you will get that problem from anything that has a wire but clip cords seem to last longer for me.

If you use RCA or the standard C.C. you shound use clear speaker
cable wire because this will allow you to see if your cable breaks as it will turn a lime green color showing where the break in the cable is located. Then just change it to a new one.

I make my own bracket for RCA jacks and it works great. I've had to outfit everybody else's machines in the shop after they see it. You don't get the bad connection when you move the machine around like with clip cords. They do wear out though. You will occasionally have to replace the jack or the cord, especially if your power supply only runs one machine and you are constantly switching the cord back and forth. The whole setup only costs you about $10 and takes about 10 minutes.

RCA SUCKFEST

Posted by thyrdai on 05/17/07


RCA's are a joke. Perhaps try an 1/8th inch audio connector. The ones that work best are the TS (tip sleeve) which is just a hot and a ground connection, EXACTLY like an RCA. And get a female 1/8th inch jack and put it right on the end of your machine. With the 1/8th inch there is no slip-outs. Most of these you can pick up at RadioShit-- 6 bucks for the cable -- 2 bucks for the jack. should be 1/8th to 1/4 inch audio cable (round 6 ft should do it). If not.. and you can solder... I recommend just building your own cable.
