PCB-mount gold-plated RCA (phono) sockets?

    Does anyone sell gold-plated RCA (aka phono) sockets? It's easy to find
    gold-plated chassis mount but I need PCB mount ones, and can't find anyone
    that sells them.

    I'm in UK but anywhere that will export to UK is fine.

    Many thanks,

    Jim

    Why do you need gold plating?

  3. Hi,

    They carry single gold-plated phono sockets designed to be both PCB and
    chassis mounted and also twin/quad that are PCB mount only.


    Cheers - Joe

    Hi Leon,

    Good question - it is more of a marketing thing, I'm sorry to say. I realise
    the benefits are rather questionable.

  7. Conrad.nl has these, just had a look (to get my mind of a difficult PIC (problem) ).
    order 73 68 99-44 PCB gold, marked black, Euro 1.49 a piece, 1.22 25 up.
    Dunno about shipping, if you need a lot I could go in-between (then they would
    be 12.55 a piece ;-) (but wave epibrated of cause) )

    On a sunny day (Sun, 8 Feb 2004 00:20:23 +0100) it happened "Frank

  11. Occasionally I buy at Conrad, but a while ago someone pointed
    me to Reichelt, and often they are a *lot* cheaper. A good
    shopping place for hobbyists, in general.
