Product Details

Balun RCA Stereo to RJ45

Run stereo content or two channels of line level audio over unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable with the 2 x RCA to RJ45 audio balun. Two gold plated RCA female connectors connect to the line level output of an unbalanced audio source. Cat5/6 cable is run between two baluns, or just use cable that may already be in place. An RJ45 jack makes connection to the UTP cable convenient. The input and output of a balun are not physically connected, so baluns essentially eliminate system ground loops. Sold individually, used in pairs.

Balun RCA Stereo to RJ45 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great problem-solver.Looked a long time for a solution to a problem. Knew what to do, but could not find this particluar balun configuration. Made a life-time customer out of me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seems noisyBought these to extend audio throughout the house. I have a pair of Geffen's that I have been using for years. These are far less expensive. Audio quality is good while a signal is present but without one there is noise on the line.

Balun RCA Stereo to RJ45

Does this pass enough low frequency energy for a subwoofer?

My subwoofer cable run is about 52' from my receiver.
Asked by: Steve S.
These are usually rated for 20-20kHz bandwidth which will be fine for most subwoofer applications. However, 52 feet is not long enough to require a balun in my opinion, you would be much farther ahead simply running a line of RG-6 Quad Shield coax cable with RCA's crimped on the ends.

Shielded Cat 5e OK?

Will this balun work with Shielded cable? My house is already wired with shielded Cat 5e. The specs say use Unshielded Cat 5, but I don t know if that is just for cost purposes, or if the shielding on structured wire affects performance.
Asked by: Hawkfb63
I would suspect that you would be safe using the existing shielded Cat-5. We are working with audio frequencies and I don't think that the capacitance issues would effect the function.
