Default chassis mount RCA jacks

I am designing a preamp for an engineering school project and I need to find chassis mount RCA jacks. I'd like them to be of good constructional quality, but I can't spend $5 a piece on stuff like Cardas RCA jacks. Does anyone have any suggesstions of a particular brand or supplier? Price is my major determining factor, but I'd like to avoid the $0.15 jacks that are tiny and not isolated from the chassis.

Ditto. Just don't make the same mistake I did (check the way they have been assembled)

Any intelligence I may appear to have is purely artificial!

The first ones are nice but pricey.

I would go uninsulated and do it yourself, find some washers or something.

btw I bought a bunch on ebay for cheap..

How good do they need to be?

I bought a 2x4 grid of these at Radio Shack last month for about three bucks. They are just as good as what you'd find in low-end consumer audio gear.
