RCA Audio Cables

Almost anyone who has ever had to hook up multiple gaming, video, and audio systems on their television sets has probably had to deal with RCA audio cables. These cables range in length, and have three plugs on each end of the connection, and they are used as an electrical connector. You may not know it, but these cables have been around since the 1940s, and they were originally designed as a way to connect the phonograph players of that time period to amplifiers so that the sound could be better heard. These plugs are known as male connectors, and they are designed to go into the jack of the device that you are connecting. You will want to make sure that you are putting the correctly labeled connectors into the proper jacks so that the sound quality is working at its best.

When you are trying to connect the RCA audio cables you will want to make sure that the male connector is firmly pushed into the receiving connection. This is because the cable may look like it is firmly in place, but if it is only placed loosely in the socket and the grounded rings have not firmly connected, then when you turn on the equipment you will hear a loud humming or buzzing noise. If this happens do not worry, the first thing that you need to do is to go back to the cables and make sure that they are appropriately connected on each end. If the noise remains continuous and does not stop then you may have a faulty ground in the RCA audio cables and you will want to return them for another set of cables.

Another thing to keep in mind when you are looking for RCA audio cables is that cheaper is not better. These plugs may cost less, but they may not have the flexibility and the ground source may not ever contact, which could leave you with a constant intermittent problem with buzzing. If this is something that you have experienced in the past but you are not sure what is causing these noises, you might want to try swapping out the connecting cables to see if this helps you to resolve the problems.

Something that you do not have to worry about when you are hooking up RCA audio cables is the process. This is because the cables have been color coded in a manner that will allow you to easily hook them up so that you can begin using them automatically. You do not have to be an electrical wizard in order to set them up and use them, and this makes the RCA audio cables something of a favorite among people who want to easily be able to connect their equipment. In fact, you can use these cables to connect stereos, camcorders, and other forms of video equipment.
