Several reviewers seem to be using this cable for unintended purposes. The cable is intended to be used to connect one output to two inputs. Using it to connect two outputs to one input might work if you are lucky, but is fraught with problems, and it is not the cable's fault.

Using it to connect one output to two inputs connects an output of approximately 100 ohms impedance to two very high impedance inputs, which works very well at the very low analog audio frequencies. Analog audio is not very demanding, and as long as the cable is reasonably shielded and makes good contact at the connectors, it will work well.

Connecting two outputs together has problems. Standard line outputs have an impedance of about 100 ohms, but can vary. A headphone output, which can usually be used as a line out with success (and is commonly done), has an output impedance of about 30 ohms or so. Speaker outputs, which can also work successfully to a line input (if you don't turn up the volume too high), has an impedance more like 4 ohms. If you connect two line level outputs together with a similar impedance, you might get away with it. Mixing any of the types listed above will provide unpredictable results, usually bad. Connecting two speaker outputs together might burn out the output transistors. In any case, it is NOT the cable's fault. The cable just connects the wires together. It does not perform magic. For connecting two outputs together, a $50 cable will work as poorly as a $5 cable. Use a switchbox instead.

Gave only 4 stars as it is not a super high quality cable, but for the price I was not expecting anything more. At Radio Shack this cable is $16.95. Yes, it is better quality and gold plated, but this one works just fine for my needs.

i see a lot of reviews on this product stating that you will wreak havoc on your components or suffer from horrible audio if you try to combine two outputs into one input. to this i have to say, sure, if you don't know what you're doing. but if you're smart about it, and only run one component at a time, you shouldn't have any issues. the trick is to combine line outputs from two similar devices. for instance, i combined the outputs from my dvd player and a media streaming console. the signal strength/resistance, and subsequently, the volume of each device is the same when coming across my tv speakers. if you try to put an adapter from a headphone output together with a component's audio line output, you're gonna have problems with gain levels and overall volume.

for me, this setup works perfectly when trying to connect three devices to an old tv with only two source selections in my son's toyroom. the wii goes to a/v 1, the dvd player video is rca and the media streamer video is component on a/v 2, and the audio also gets combined on a/v 2 via this cable. works like a charm!

anyway, onto the product review. the actual cable does not feel any more durable than the standard rca audio cables that come packaged with most entertainment devices these days. the regular male jacks are also about standard. the piggyback jacks are nothing too special, until you remember that they're piggyback jacks and can combine two audio sources (and yes, of course, split one audio source into two). this is absolutely the only thing that makes this cable special. no fancy gold plating or cable shielding exists with this cable.

if shipping was not included for free, i would have not spent $3.36 for this. i have plenty of rca audio cables laying around that i could have simply spliced together to acheive the same result. really, the main reason i got this cable was to prove that you actually can combine two outputs into one input. don't let the nay-sayers fool you.

I purchased this cable set to piggy back the audio output on my flat screen tv to allow a set of headphones as well as sound bar to be installed - works great!

Running 100-150' separate wires. audio/visual from CCTV outside camera to 2 monitors, one is a large 32" television. Video carries perfectly from camera, and the 100' feet of wire is same size as the piggyback wires. So, for a CCTV, in my case, this piggyback cable can carry video as well as audio. More professionally, video/audio is run in well shielded bigger cable. Both ends have rubber cable covers to prevent wires from easily breaking by constantly bending wire ends. For audio, a very well shielded cable is best to prevent any stray interference--then use y-splitter at end, so you have it well shielded, except perhaps in the splitter of inch or less.

Very useful cable for running a pre-amp output to more than one amplifier or system. I use this cable to run DVD audio output to two separate end units, for recording and playing DVDs.

Nice piggyback cables here work fine I don't dislike them that much, but I would not use them in a professional configuration of any sort. The reason I say this is because there is static / buzzing noise when you have to peripherals plugged into this piggyback cable. Other than that he's cables are fine and yes they allowed a single coaxial to be used as a double coaxial which I have used to transmit sound from my DJ controller to two separate speakers which were powered.
