One more thing with BNCs on RG6 coaxes is the way it is terminated. The RG6 center conductor slips into the BNC center pin and termination is then completed with a compression tool. All connections are therefore just surface-to-surface only.

Where it can be done practically on hi-fi audio applications, I'll take solid solder connections anytime over surface-to-surface, wire-wrapped/twisted, or even crimped connections.

Yeah but the RCA center pin is stuck out there ready and waiting to be broken off at a moments notice.

If you step on it on a hard surface, does it not bend? If a piece of equipment falls off the table, does it not snap off? Leaving the center pin in the socket... at least with BNC it takes the rest of your equipment along with it, sometimes thats a good thing, if for example its connected to a couple of large monoblocks.

And what about that horrible contact pressure on the shield, amirite? What happens to the shield of a RCA connector once its bent? you ever tried bending one of those back with a pair of pliers? haha..

I have no idea what sonic performance difference there will be, I hope it will be a good one. I'm still waiting on my BNC sockets to arrive from china :P

One thing that I do love about RG6 quad copper core is its 18 AWG center conductor, with RCA cables you get a mystery bag and not as many shields....

See this thread for more info: Are there many people using BNC out there? or RG6 Quad Shield?

I'll never make interconnect runs across foot traffic areas. Tripping accident waiting to happen, and with BNC connectors your equipment will be dragged and fall off the rack before the connectors break. More broken pieces than just a broken center pin with RCAs

I'm quite familiar with RG6 as hundreds of miles were ran here at the world's largest building by volume/floor space, the Boeing Factory in Everett, WA List of largest buildings in the world - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In 2008-09 I was the project engineer from design to commissioning and on-air testing/acceptance to provide DAS (Distributed Antenna System) 3G wireless service. The cellsites around the area simply cannot penetrate into the factory's massive volume.

I've been using it since 1998 for use on satellite dishes and discone antenna cable runs.

Nothing as major as a full on contract like that!

Default Here's a couple more to add to the menu

The iER^2.1 is a 1-IN/2-HP OUT Warpspeed -the 1-IN is switchable between the 2-HP OUTs; For the hobbyist with at least 2 headphones; An easy A-B'ing of 2 headphones with a flick of the switch; No switching transient pops and clicks even on very high sensitivity 'phones

The iER^2.1-xW2 is a 1-IN/2-HP OUT Warpspeed -the 1-IN is shared between the 2-HP OUTs simultaneously; For the hobbyist who wants to share great music/movie sound without disturbing the neighbors; Fine level control is available for each HP Out to serve both listeners' comfort level


Have a peaceful and joyous Christmas with your family and loved ones everyone!

As long as you're happy, I'm happy...please use what is convenient for you. I trust you (or anyone who owns one) to decide if it's good or not to the sound
