Hi, I've been searching with no success for a specific type of audio
Y-adapter. Was wondering if anyone knew of a source. I should
probably mention I've tried using combinations of RCA-to-3.5 mm to get
the desired result, but for my application space is tight and the RCA

What I am looking for is a Y-adapter with a female 3.5mm stereo jack at
one end to two male 3.5mm mono plugs (one having left signal, the other
right) at the other. I need about 6 of these, so I'd prefer to buy
them vs. making them up from parts.

The closest I've been able to locate was one with opposite genders
(3.5mm stereo plug to two 3.5mm mono jacks.)

Thanks for any help/pointers...

I checked this number at the Waldon site - it has RCA connectors as
opposed to
3.5mm ones - Waldon/GC doesn't seem to carry what I am looking for.

Thanks anyway.

This will probably get you close.. Don't know whether the mono-stereo is
correct.. maybe a call to MPJA will answer that for you.

Try Radio Shack, seems I bought a Y-adapter there just like that once.

Right thing, wrong size, could be used with a few extra adaptors...

Close but not quite what I need.

Thanks very much for taking the time to help.

PS This site certainly is cheap enough ... I don't think I've ever seen
a Y adapter sold for less than a buck.

Well, they came really close: 2 mono plugs to 1 mono jack.

Thanks.

why not _cut off_ and _replace_ the RCA jacks?

I can do that, sure, but I was hoping to find pre-made adapters,
primarily because I wanted the added strength of the molded strain
reliefs. I could goop stuff on, I suppose, but I thought I would try

That would work, if I could find a 3.5mm female gender changer *and* a
Y-adapter going from 3.5mm stereo male to two 3.5mm mono males
(splitting the L+R). I haven't seen the latter either.

Thanks for the suggestions.

If you crimp the metal cord clamp correctly it should be plenty strong -
it's not as if these damn little plugs - the spawn of satan - grip well in
their sockets. ;-)

I am looking at the 2000 Radio Shack catalog. On page 144, item 42-2495
headphones on many commercial airlines. Dual 1/8" mono plug to 1/8"
stereo jack Y-cable. Fits two 1/8" mono jacks." It cost \$4.99. It does
not say whether the output on the mono end of the cable is identical at
each plug, or whether one is right channel and the other left channel.

Radio Shack seemed not to have any 3.5 mm fittings or cables. All their
fittings were either 1/4" or 1/8 ", so I suppose the 1/8" jacks and
plugs were intended to be used instead of 3.5 mm hardware.
