EXF series Pro RCA audio connector

  • Gold plated
  • high end


    • RCA connectors consist of a male plug with a central pin and a surrounding metal shell, and a female jack with a central hole and a surrounding metal sleeve.
    • The cable is usually a coaxial cable with a single inner conductor and a braided outer shield.
  • Applications:
    • Primarily used for analog audio signals, connecting components like CD players, turntables, amplifiers, and speakers.
    • Also used for composite video signals, typically with three RCA connectors (yellow for video, red for right audio, and white for left audio) to form a composite video connection.
    • In rare cases, used for S/PDIF digital audio signals, with an orange RCA connector to differentiate it from standard RCA connectors.
  • Benefits:
    • Easy to use: Simply plug the male plug into the female jack for a secure connection.
    • Affordable: Due to their simple design, RCA connectors are relatively inexpensive.
    • Versatile: Used for a variety of audio and video applications.
  • Limitations:
    • Not ideal for high-quality video: Composite video offers lower quality compared to HDMI or component video connections.
    • Can be susceptible to interference: The cable’s design can make it more prone to electromagnetic interference compared to some other connector types.

Here are some additional details about RCA connectors:

  • Sizes: They come in standard sizes to fit most RCA jacks.
  • Materials: Typically made of metal with gold plating for improved corrosion resistance and signal transmission.
  • Color coding: While not universally standardized, RCA connectors for composite video are often color-coded yellow (video), red (right audio), and white (left audio).

Overall, RCA connectors are a simple and common solution for connecting audio and video equipment. However, for higher-quality video or applications where interference is a concern, other connector types might be better suited.
