James Romeyn custom unbalanced IC. Insulation colors green and white in this image, whereas current colors are black and white. Shown loose is new, current production Neutrik RCA plug next to discontinued plugs on this IC. New plug has gold plated contacts, wide color band for channel ID, chuck-type plastic internal strain relief, large rubber external strain relief, larger/improved solder terminals, heavier/more rugged construction, and deeply knurled/larger diameter shell increases grip. We love these new plugs!
One month trail with full refund minus shipping for all standard terminations. All sales final for custom terminations (noted in product descriptions below). Returns require client to contact vendor for RA #, pack properly, insure for full original value, and pay only return shipping and insurance fee.
We generally recommend matching the metal plating of all connector contacts for analog signals. Mismatched plating contacts increases potential for electrolysis. We heard mismatched contact plating solely and directly cause audible hash and grunge. (We corrected the error in this case by making special adapters to match contact plating on both sides.)
We can not more strongly recommend annual application of Caig DeOxit Gold contact cleaner and treatment on all accessible contacts including AC mains plugs, IEC, and duplex outlets.
All products below are neutral, transparent, and suitable for wide array of systems because they lack the ubiquitous tendency to act as a system EQ.
Assembled with silver content solder and Hakko temperature-adjustable solder iron.
