Use with cautionJan 22, 2013
By Richard A Rudolph
Right from the manufactures web site: "This cable is designed to apply a mono signal equally to a mini stereo phone input. It may be used to connect a mixing console to a portable media player, laptop, or similar device" on the package it states "This cable is designed to sum a stereo signal to a mono phone input. It may be used to connect an iPod, laptop, or similar device to a mixing console." Pay attention to the direction of the signal flow. There seems to be some confusion here.
The problem is that the cable "sums" the stereo signal by shorting out the positives of the right and left channels (the ring and tip of the stereo jack are directly connected (soldered) together). This could burnout the stereo output stage of the device, especially if it is not designed to handle shorts.
A resistive load must be presented between the positives of the right and left channels in order to sum the two signals together and prevent stereo output stage burnout.
The manufactures website presents this cable to be a mono output to a stereo input connect. The cable is physically manufactured to support this direction of signal flow. Mono (output) to stereo (input) NOT stereo (output) to mono (input).
I would give this cable 5 stars if it were sold as a mono (output) to stereo (input) connect.

Use for connecting iPhone to amp or radioFeb 19, 2013
By Allison Cummins
I have many of these cables to connect my iPhone or iPad to an amp or radio. I find it works better than having the more expensive blue tooth devices.

Works goodJul 16, 2012
By S. B. Conrad
It is just what it says it is and it works great. While it is not a beefy Monster cable I am still happy with the quality. Careful though, this one is Mono to Stereo. Make sure that is what you want.

Internal wiring short-circuited within a month of very light useFeb 11, 2014
By John Ruppert
When this cable first arrived, the signal was great, but after a few times pulling it into and out of a channel mixer, the sound became cracky and popping. Very disappointed in product life.
