Why is the quality of sockets and connectors so important?
Published:2014-06-26 16:36:25

Just as cables, so also sockets and connectors play an important role in line matching. The optimal load of a video transmission line is 75 ohms, which is a low impedance value. A low quality connector, in which metal parts, not made or plated with silver or gold, make the connection, pose an additional load to the line, upset the 75 ohms matching, and create a host of undesirable effects. A good quality connector creates a tight contact, which is not the case when a low quality connector is used. Therefore, refrain from using low quality cables and connectors, as the savings never pay off.
