It seems to be a knock-off of the Monster Cable PL 2-B Phonolink 2 Standard RCA Connector with a different looking barrel, but I would not be surprised if it is of comparative sound quality, so it's likely a competent inexpensive option that should be okay for use with the inexpensive Van Damme cable, especially since the cable features silver plated copper conductors which may benefit from a possibly warm, polite sounding gold plated brass rca connector. There are certainly worse rca interconnect cables to avoid, so you might like what you hear as an inexpensive option for a phono application, with a future upgrade path to consider. Enjoy your upcoming DIY project, KanedaK!
Well I've just finished soldering the cable and it sounds great :) the plugs are indeed knockoffs but they're more than okay for the price.
I'm amazed with the sound really. I understand what viny is all about now ^^
That's good news, KanedaK. BTW, since I noticed you enjoy modifying your audio gear, you might consider a power cord upgrade for your Technics SL-6 turntable that features a removable C7 power cord. It may seem counter-intuitive that a power cord for a turntable motor must not make a sonic difference, one way or another, but this is not the case. Replacing the stock power cord of my Thorens TT made a very big impact for the better.
Since your Technics SL-6 turntable features a removable C7 power cord, you won't need to deal with a hardwired power cord swap. If you measure the clearance of the power cord AC inlet located at the back of the Technics SL-6, I may be able to recommend a C7 connector that will clear the size of the opening for a DIY power cord project. Otherwise, there are aftermarket audiophile power cords that feature a C7 connector if you are not interested in a DIY build.
Thanks. This will be my first foray into vinyl; considering this is a (lovely) entry-level linear tracking turntable with a (well regarded) entry-level p-mount cartridge, it's not likely to become my main source. It's more a functional means of listening to those "oh look what I found here" kitsch-disco-forgotten-french-fleamarket-finds-vinyl-records. But who knows, I might enjoy the experience and start looking for improvements!
