Here are all That you Need  to Know about Audio  Cables  T ​here are so many types of audio cables available in the market.                         And its a very likely scenario that you bought the wrong audio                         cable for your music system. Dont worry you are not alone in this.                           It is a mistake that everyone makes. Thus this guide will explain                         the required basics along with the types and use cases.        1. Jack connector    In any musical equipment it is one of the most common                       connection found. The quarter-inch jack is best for electric guitars                     and amps. It is always ¼ inch or 6.3 mm jack with a single black                               hoop. It has an insulating ring towards its tip. Known as                       1

"Instrument cables" it is best for line-level connections "Speaker                   Cable". They are an ideal choice for connecting speakers to amps                       guitar heads to cabinets. Moreover to convert any connector of                     cable you can use 3.5mm to 2.5mm audio cable or ​2.5mm to 3.5mm                           audio cable ​. In case you are looking to share your favorite songs                         with your near ones you can use an audio splitter cable.    2. ¼-Inch Balanced Jack Connector    This cable is capable of carrying two channels of audio. This does it                           via Sleeve design Tip Ring the plug itself divided with two black                         hoops. There is a tip which is the pointy end. Then after the first                             black hoop there is a ring section and the sleeve is after the                           second.        2

The tip and the ring will carry the left and right channel signals.                           The sleeve acts as common earth. Its most common use is                       headphone output on pianos keyboards mixing desks guitar                 amps and hi-fi equipment.        Its balanced audio connections use TRS plugs to make a mono                       connection which is less susceptible to external noise particularly                   when running long cables. You can find such connection on audio                       interfaces mixing desks recording equipment and PA equipment.                 It will generally specify if your equipment needs balanced                   connections.          3

3. Stereo Mini Jack Connector    It is among the most common audio connections. It is the plug that                           you usually find on MP3 player headphones it is a smaller 3.5mm                         plug. It also has a TRS arrangement with two insulation rings. Also                         the top and ring with a sleeve as a common ground carry the left                             and right channels.    Portable music player headphones are the most common use for it.                       To connect MP3 players to car stereos and audio connections on                       devices.    4. The Rica Connector    It looks similar to mini-jack plugs as they are infrequent use in the                           home and other equipment. The RCA cable means the Radio                     Corporation of America is the one who developed this connection.                     They instigated the replacement of ¼" TRS jack connections on                     Phonographs in the 1940s to connect to amplifiers.    4

They are mono connections and unbalanced which are commonly                   used on DJ mixers audio interfaces and frequently on the tape in                         and tape out connections on mixing desks and usually features                     tap in and tape out connections on mixing desks. It features a                         red right channel connection and a white left channel connection.                     You can take this cable and share music with your loved ones                         using an ​audio splitter cable​.    5. The XLR Connector    This connection is common among so many audio applications. Its                     design is a barrel of approximately 2cm in diameter with between                       3 and 7 pins or holes. 3 pin XLR is the most common format for                               5

audio application. Cannon electronics released the Cannon X                 range. It made them known as Cannon connections Canon XL                     was the second revision and XLR the third one.    XLR connections are in use among a broad range of musical and                         audio applications. As a golden rule female XLR plugs normally                     receive output signals from devices. And mostly you can use the                       male XLR plugs to plug input devices such as a microphone. Then                         you plug male XLRs into female sockets and vice versa. Hence XLR                         is the trusty mic lead with a female XLR plug on one end and a                               male XLR on the other.    The SpeakON Connector      The recent audio connection which gives the most amazing audio                     connection is the speak ON connection. Neutrik developed this                   speakON connector which is available in 2 4 and 8 pole iterations.                         6

slide 7:

2 and 4 poles are the most commonly used in everyday audio                         applications. While designing they kept in mind the compatibility                   with high current signals. The female plugs connect to male panel                       sockets and have a twist-lock mechanism that secures them into                     the socket. It makes Speakon connectors ideal for live sound                     applications most commonly connecting power to loudspeakers.               Hence Speakon to XLR cables very common.    In this article we tried to cover the most common audio                       connections. After reading this article you wont be surprised if                     your devices are compatible with the audio cable you recently                     bought. And by mistake you buy 3.5mm cable in place of 2.5mm                         cable then you can always use a 3.5mm to 2.5mm audio cable to                           connect the 2.5mm device.    Looking to buy audio cables for your new music system Here’s                       how you can choose the right one for your use​.    If you found these articles post useful here are some other                       articles that may be of interest.    The Reason We Are Still Talking About Audio Video Cables in 2019  How to Choose the Correct Audio Cable Splitter for Headphones  All About Coaxial and VGA Cables   7
