I buy this high quality RCA at Audiophonics in France. You find them also at Hifi Collective in UK. Some chinese shops also.

For me best interconnexions are very important. I‘ve an IFI dac and after 2 month I replace defectuous RCA!

I got mine from HifiCollective. They're not cheap, but not that expensive, all things considered.

I took a chance on these and they are actually great quality. I would even go so far as to say they are the same as the HiFi Collective jacks, but at the Chinese wholsale price. And, yes, the pins can be reconfigured for the vertical mounting that the AKSA Lender PCB requires. Just be careful with the plastic.

Note: the picture shows 2 jacks but the price is only for 1. Still a better deal than HiFi Collective though.

Thanks for the recommendation, jwjarch. It really does look like good quality. My only concern is that it lacks a second nut to adjust the mounting height. But that shouldn't be an insurmountable problem.

You're welcome Skylar. Another note, however. I've found the mounting nuts are irrelevant when using the PCB since the jacks are mounted too close together to screw the nuts on. If you look at JPS64's build I noticed it doesn't look like he's using the nuts either.

I see what you mean. Thanks for pointing that out. Isn't it important then to not have to right-angle version? It seems the two extra pins are required for mounting it solidly to the PCB if the nuts are not going to be used.

The right angle version is 100% convertible. If you’re careful you can take the Two mounting pins out with a needle nose pliers and put them back in the bottom of the jack. The holes are already there. That’s what I did on mine.

Here is my take on this project. I haven't fabbed any PCBs as of yet and I really need to check the layout for errors one more time.

The IO is on another PCB. I have multiple 'standard' versions that I select from dependent upon the project.
