Hi :)

I guess everybody knows that Neutrik cable relief becomes bad, when the
connectors get old, today I noticed that some of my very old Neutrik are
shattered, I guess they are > 15 years old. The cables are still ok,
perhaps affected by oxygen, but the sound still is ok (maybe not for
every usage).

For new cables I've got some Rean connectors that seems to be good too,
but without plastic that could break.

I've got several no name connectors, but the 6.3 jacks of those
elCheapos sometimes need to be 'semi-plugged' to get a connection and
those XLRs wiggel, very good for hand-held microphones. Some connectors
melt away, even when the iron (!from a soldering station!) is 50 cm away
from the connectors. At home I just use 2 soldering irons, one with
minimal Watt and another to solder ground to e.g. pots, if the minimal
Watt iron shouldn't be able to do it.

Can anybody recommend a vendor for 6.3 jacks and XLR connectors?

I know große Tuchel connectors older than me, that are still ok, just
the cables needed to be replaced.

At the moment I tend to use Rean connectors in the future. Has anybody
experiences with this connectors?

Throwaway society :(.

Regards,

Ralf
