    Default Looking for Phono/RCA Plug Recommendations

    Hi all

    I will soon be building a new full set of Interconnects and will be using the Van Damme Shotgun Cable throughout and that has a 6mm outer diameter

    My usual supplier of the type of plug I used in the past has ceased trading so I am looking for recomendations for a good quality plug to use

    Anyone got any recomendations for a plug that will fit a 6mm OD cable

    Been on the BayofEvil and found a few that look ok, any thoughts on these

    Thanks for any help with this

    I use these and they're very good for the money . The silver part can be removed for thicker cables . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6x-Colour...1905714448?ssP

    Look smart and can you fit them tightly without solder? That's a big plus for me

    Yes they are solderless and use grub screws

    These are my and many others on here go to choice

    Tried these as replacements on many a bought cable, always found an improvement, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Star-Line...0AAOSwNFFa5n8z

    Obviously a copy of the KLE plugs at a fraction of the price, there are also pure silver ones if you are feeling a bit spendy https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4N-pure-S...gAAOSwXeJXc2Xv

    Lack of a metal body( alleged reduction in eddy currents) and a hollow centre pin seems to be the way forward for rca plugs, great for digital coax cables too.

    Can you cite research results that support this?
