I've bought it for a line-in connection recorder-to-soundcard and to connect my monitors from the soundcard. It serves both purposes well, much better then my previous makeshift solutions with various waggling adapters. I wonder, why I didn't do it sooner. Sound quality is very good without flaws, what you can expect from sturdy jacks on both sides and thick cable that could last for years. RCA (cinch) jacks are bigger than ordinary ones, hence the manipulation is easier.
