    Default Preferred RCA Cable Length?

    For the RCA cables between your audio interface/CDJs/controller/etc and your mixer, what is your preferred length of cable?

    Under 1m.

    Why? Because I only use RCA Cables to connect from the Soundcard to the mixer and I always setup the soundcard close to the mixer so I don't have a spaghetti madness on the booth.

    I really don't know anything about audio signal quality regarding wire distances, but I like to believe the shortest the wire the better the signal ahah!

    I Fuc''''in hate wires!

    under 1m for home as i simply connect the CDJs to the mixer, i think the cables are 40-50 cm long

    naturally longer ones are better for clubs, in case you need to move stuff around

    1.5m (or probably even 1) should be the universal size. The first pair of RCAs which I bought was 5m each. Biggest mistake of my "dj career" haha.

    Haha Personally I like 1/1.5ms for my audio interconnects and then a 6m beauty for my master output, just in case I have to run a cable across the room or something.

    That sounds perfect, yeah. Running around the house and asking all girls for hairbands shouldn't be a part of gig preparation.

    Ahaha :P That's where Velcro cable ties come in handy :P I might start tossing one in with every purchase of my cables.

    The original DJTT RCA's are way too short @ 1m ... the new ones are spot on at 1.5m/5ft
