Our take on the Arista Stereo Mini Cable

by James Ralston

Equipped with 3.5-millimeter stereo mini plugs on both ends, this cable is handy for such uses as connecting a computer sound card to a pair of desktop powered speakers, or hooking up a portable CD or MP3 player to a car stereo receiver with a minijack aux input. Length: 6 feet. Warranty: 90 days.

You Get what you pay for Or Maybe my

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this cable for hooking up a 3.5mm input into my jeep. I ran the cable from the back of my Alpine Receiver into my glovebox. This way I could lock up my iPod easy when leaving the car. While it worked well when it worked, You should honestly spend a couple dollars more for something that will last up to some normal abuse. Pros -Cable worked with no noise -Semi Cheap -Connectors fit decently with everything I plug them into

-Cons -Feels pretty Cheap construction, like a 2$ ebay cable.... -In a month of light usage, One of the male connectors has a noticeable bend to it to it. It is possible to bend it back, however upon closer inspection, theres a dimple on it and Im getting noise when the connector isn't sitting just right.

Got it to hook my MP3 player into my new receiver.

Works flawlessly and is long enough that it can sit on my seat.

I took good care of this cable and never snagged it, but it only lasted for a few months before one of the internal wires snapped inside. Junk.

Excellent for iPod.

Written By Andre, Rockville, MD on Friday, April 07, 2006
I purchased this to use with my iPod and Alpine CDE-9845 headunit. All I can say is that the sound quality is AMAZING and compared to an expensive FM transmitter it is a 100X better. None of that background hiss and alternator whine with this. Great buy if you have an AUX Input and a portable player.

Great for Mp3 to car hook up

Written By Marvin, Raleigh NC on Tuesday, January 24, 2006
Better than the FM transmitter. I have an In Dash Sony CD player, which has an AUX input in the front. I have a Creative Zen MP3, tried the Radio transmitter, STATIC, NOT RECOMMENDED got the this wire and the sound from my MP3 is CD quality. AWESOME
