To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A means to connect a portable device to a hi-fi system, audio amplifier or preamplifier, otherwise to connect the output from a DAC or headphone amplifier to a hi-fi amplifier. It is for the latter purpose that the "KabelDirekt – 1m Aux/3.5mm to RCA Splitter Cable (Audio & Auxiliary Cable, 3.5mm Aux to 2 RCA, Hi-Fi, Stereo, Phone, iPod, Double Shielded) PRO Series" is required.
Although a portable DAC amplifier is owned and used, another mains-powered version is required for use with a PC for improved output performance that will not be limited to the few hours of use permitted by an internal battery. A choice of a specific DAC model and brand is yet to be finalised.
The cable is typical of those from the brand from which several others are in current use both in a computing context but also with video equipment. This is from their 'PRO' series and uses higher quality cabling and connectors as well as sharing some stylistic characteristics.
Tested by connecting a DAP to a hi-fi setup, it performs to expectation and without introducing any unwanted effects. Without ever using a comparable cable any possible performance improvements beyond that of an inexpensive alternative cannot be claimed. It is expected to soon be in regular use.
The Ugreen stuff has been decent for me so far, used a few cables and adapters and also a bluetooth to phono adapter (to get the echo dot audio to the amp). Better than the budget generic stuff I used to use - the modest increase in cost definitely pays in terms of quality and durability.
Another good thing which I hope they stick to is packaging their cables and dongles in nice small cardboard boxes with a printed sleeve - far better for recycling than a nasty blister packet.
I think perhaps this cable is really poorly shielded - very buzzy. Separating the two connectors improves the issue, but of course given the proximity of most left / right output sockets you’d expect this to not be an issue. I tested this by using two other separate cables, but still poor.
I've bought probably half a dozen products from these guys over the last few years. And never have I had any issues with durability, build quality or price. This product was no different. And with RicherSounds charging more than 10x the price for this, I will likely continue to purchase from Ugreen again.
Bought this so that my daughter could listen to her TV using her headphones. Her TV did not have a headphone socket so this was ideal. Works perfectly and is very good quality. Item came quickly so I'm very satisfied both with the item and the price.
