I bought this Neutrik connector to build custom audio cables for my studio.
The connector is of the highest quality and meets a professional standard. It feels solid and durable when connecting various audio equipment.
The plastic cable locking system requires some customizing when used with a thicker shielded audio wire.
There is a drastic difference in quality between custom audio cables made with Neutrik connectors, and other lower quality, cheap cables I have previously owned. This connector has stood the test of time and has not failed to date. I consider it a studio essential and has saved me money in the long term, as I no longer have to replace or repair cables.
