I also posted this in the Cables forum. But just to cover my bases....
Earlier in the year, I acquired a REL Precedent FM tuner that is being given the once over by my technician before insertion into my Shindo-based system. The REL, being a mono tuner, has a single output jack. I'm presently saving my pennies to purchase an Auditorium 23 Y splitter with two RCA males on one end and a single RCA male on the other. In the meanwhile, could you recommend a reasonably priced manufacturer with the same type of Y splitter that I could purchase to enable me to run the tuner in my system?
Thanks in advance!
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and ideas.
1973shovel - I wanted RCA males at both ends of the IC to free up my Shindo silver ICs for use elsewhere in the system. An adapter would work however I hadn't given that route as much prior consideration.
Timbo in Oz - I'm in the "torturous" process of a house remodel that will take ~two years to complete so I am loathe to roof mount one now. When the time comes, I was considering a Ron Smith antenna and have been reviewing their website and their various models to determine the most applicable/optimal/economical one to acquire. If there are other antenna brands to consider, I'd greatly appreciate that info.
In the interim, the person I acquired the REL from and an audio dealer I have been working with for many years now also recommended using a Magnum Dynalab ST-2 as a stop gap measure.
Congratulations on the acquisition of a Precedent!
I would look towards a Yagi or long array (Rhombic) over the ST-2
I have had a couple - and while they work well- especially w/ MD tuners- they do not work so well with tube based front ends or other tuners with 4 or more gangs in the front - just my experience...
Wouldn't you want the adapter to be a single male RCA (at the mono tuner's output) to two female RCA jacks for you to plug your pair of interconnects into?
You don't say why you'd want male / males (not that there's anything wrong with that, as they kept repeating on Seinfeld.) If my assumption is incorrect, would you mind explaining what you're planning? Do you have interconnects with female RCA jacks on the ends?
If you do in fact need male to females, I realize you only need one adapter, but Asylum sponsor PartsConnexion has a pair of them for $9.95
Good luck with that REL!

i) I hope you are going to be driving it real hard by a directional antenna with gain. (That is, a yagi in your loft or up a mast.) It's a valve tuner so it needs to be driven hard. It will only sound real good when you do, and they resist being overloaded really well.
ii) Consider getting a good sounding MPX decoder (stereo out) to run off it. Get your techie to fit an MPX out socket and lead.
LBNLeast. does kinda depend on what good sounding stations you have have nearby.
