Create your own personal jukebox with this cable.
One of my favorite things about technology is how it helps us adapt to new situations. When I was working for a nonprofit, I was constantly trying to find ways to save money and cut corners. Those ventures led to some pretty creative problem-solving on my part. One of the things I always struggled with was connecting my iPhone, iPad, or laptop to a projector for presentations. I just never seemed to have all the right cables. I had to jury-rig solutions together from a bunch of adapters just to get sound pumping from my laptop into a set of speakers. Thanks to Syncwire’s 3.5mm to 2-Male RCA Adapter Audio Stereo Cable, I no longer have to worry about temporary solutions to problems like that.
The 3.5mm to 2 RCA cable allows users to connect devices like iPhone/iPads, MP3 players, smartphones, and laptops with a 3.5mm headphone jack to a stereo receiver, amplifier, TV, VCR, DVD player, AV receiver, speaker, projector, etc. – with 2 RCA connectors. The cable has gold-plated connectors that prevent surface oxidation and ensures stable performance without noise. The cable is made of TPE and bulletproof wire. It also has anti-sway up to 5000+ which protects the cable from being broken. The outer layer of the cable is tangle-free braided nylon. The able has a 3-year warranty attached to it and Syncwire will support returns of products that don’t meet expectations within 90 days of purchase.

So I have to admit that I struggled for a while trying to decide exactly how I wanted to utilize this cable. Even though Syncwire provides some pretty decent options in their product description, I still wasn’t sure how this cable might fit into my workspace. All of a sudden, it hit me. I’ve been using a super cool docking station for my iPad Pro for several weeks now. I use my iPad a lot a night so in the morning, I place it on the dock to charge and I’ve been using it as my personal jukebox. The docking station does not have built-in speakers – one of the only features I wish they had included – but it does have a built-in headphone (3.5mm) jack. Therefore, I was able to connect my iPad’s dock to my awesome shelf speakers from Audioengine. I’m super happy with this setup and think it was a great decision for my workstation. Surprisingly enough, the Music app on the computer can take up a lot of memory resources and when you are doing some work-intensive projects, it can slow your system down a bit. That’s why I rely on my iPad to provide audio enjoyment for me.
The cable seems to provide a solid connection between my iPad’s dock and the speakers. Since the cable is super long (nearly 10 feet), I don’t have any issues with hiding the cable beneath the desk and routing it to the dock and speakers. The RCA connections on the speakers are located on the right unit. That happens to be the one closest to my iPad dock (as shown in the photo). So, the cable doesn’t necessarily have to travel far, but it does a great job connecting the two devices. The audio quality is superb and I really don’t have any complaints about the setup or quality of the cable.
This cable is a steal. Its MSRP is around $14 (USD) and even though you may not think you have a use for it, it’s a very handy cable to have in your toolkit.
