This is their engineered RCA and will compare to the Audio Quest Golden Gate RCA's.

They look extremely well engineered:

    You can tell by a marketing photo how well they are engineered?

    Amazing

    Looks like a nice entry level cable, something a bit better than the standard RCA's that come with gear.

    I am wondering what an "Engineered RCA" is?
    Are there "un-engineered" RCAs?

    Nah...I don't think Behringer is involved.

    A so called science type proudly says... "I do realize that I would fool myself all the time, about listening conclusions and many other observations, if I did listen before buying. That’s why I don’t, I bought all of my current gear based on technical parameters alone, such as specs and measurements."

    Most likely their patent will shed some light.

    Ah, thank you Ryan.

    I clicked on the specification link and got this.
    There isn't any related Specification for this product at this time.

    Maybe it's an Ethereal patent.

    Strikingly similar looking.However by description it is an RG 6 spec 75 ohm coax.The cable pictured in the first post is not.

  • jeremymarcinkojeremymarcinko Posts: 2,807
    Yes. My point is that cable design is ethereal. Many of their cables, coax, optical, subwoofer, and component all use that same connector and braid.

    It appears so.

    Looks like 95 percent of those cables is plastic, cotton fiber stuffing, and foil. Sort of like Monster Cable made a killing with. At least they did not call them a Reference product, just their Ultimate. I thought Monoprice was all about engineering in audio cables being a waste of money.
