About the Liberty MuxLabs Stereo Audio Balun Wall Plate

No more long RCA cable runs

Transmitting quality audio over a long wire run can be tricky. Two of these analog stereo RCA baluns will get the job done. They'll let you send a stereo signal over CAT-5e or CAT-6 Ethernet cable so you can connect an audio source in one room to a distant amplifier in a smart and tidy installation. You'll use one balun to convert from RCA to Ethernet, and the second to convert from Ethernet back to RCA.

What is a balun?

A balun gets its name by converting signals between balanced and unbalanced lines. Balanced cables carry signals over much longer distances than unbalanced lines, thanks to superior noise rejection.

These baluns convert RCA to balanced CAT-5e or CAT-6 connections. The result is clear, crisp signal transmission that offers flexible placement options for your equipment.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Q
I already have a 30 foot RCA run from my receiver to my turntable. Question: Will converting to a balun system improve the sound quality versus my RCA cable run? Note: My RCA run is made up of: 2.5 foot rca cable from receiver to female/female coupler to 25 foot race cable to RCA wall plate to 2.5 foot RCA cable to turn table. So potentially two factors I suppose. Will removing the number of connections regardless of cable type improve quality and/or will coverting to a 2.5 foot RCA cable to balun to 25 foot cat 6 to balun to 2.5 foot RCA cable also improve the quality?

Always eliminating (reducing) the number of connections can reduce distortion and resistance. Also get a high quality cable with good insulation properties and quality materials will really yield you the best benefit such as: AudioQuest Golden Gate Stereo mini-to-RCA adapter cable (1 meter/3.3 feet) Item #: 703GGMR1M That is the 1 meter version, however there are dozens of styles with this type of quality and features in an RCA cable with a pricing that will fit just about any budget. I don't think you will gain anything other than convenience and special installations with the MuxLabs.
