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.Read more ›
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.
