        Comments about RadioShack® 6-Ft. Gold-Plated Piggyback RCA Audio Cable:

        I used this cable to connect a VU meter inline with the audio feed from the input switchbox to the CD recorder deck as a possible alternate solution to how I had wired the VU meter and not satisfied with the way it was working. The piggyback cable solved my problem! I'm now able to see the VU meter LEDs move in sync with the audio while hooked up to the CD recorder input. Apart from the cable being a bit too long, it's great for audio mastering and studio applications.

          Comments about RadioShack® 6-Ft. Gold-Plated Piggyback RCA Audio Cable:

          Since my stereo in my car has only has one RCA preout I needed to find a way to connect another amp in my car. So I found this at radio shack, and now have two amps in my car, and the quality of this cable is as clean as can be. I still get deep earth shaking bass, and very clear highs and mids. So I definitely would buy this again.

            Comments about RadioShack® 6-Ft. Gold-Plated Piggyback RCA Audio Cable:

            I purchased this cable to connect my record player and satellite receiver to my stereo system which only has one input. The cable is sturdy and I've had no problems with the signal.
            A previous review claims that it can only take one signal at a time. That is not the case with my set up. I am able to listen to both the record player and satellite signals at the same time. Not that I want to but just clearing that up for those who might find that function useful.

              Comments about RadioShack® 6-Ft. Gold-Plated Piggyback RCA Audio Cable:

              I bought this to add in an Apple airport express to my stereo (didn't have enough audio-in jacks). Once set up, I found that with my DVD player and Airport Express plugged in, only one could be 'on' at a time. If they both were plugged in and 'on' the signal was canceled. So much for a wireless world. I've got to unplug the headphone jack from the Express if I want to watch a DVD or vise versa.
