I do wish amazon basics would make shorter cables for stacking amps/DACs as their smallest size is 1.2 meters which is just too big :(
Same here. I buy the mono price ones sometimes because you can get them in 0.5 meters. Here in Canada, I'm having a hard time finding 6 inch rca cables. The only ones I can find cost around 40 to 50 bucks on Amazon. I could buy the Schiit ones, but with shipping, and taxes, and exchange to CAD, they run around 40 bucks maybe.

I have an Amazonbasics cable tear-down to propose.
They are not badly at all. It's even surprising to see solder joints inside the moulding at this price range!
It was a bit of an exercise to cut though it. It's solid!

I have two short Monoprice RCA cables in the bedroom system. The 1.5 foot cables. They work great. I agree that you have to be careful inserting and removing them because the connection can be a bit tight. But if you twist them while you do that and/or use a small amount of Vaseline that is a non issue... The other cables in the bedroom system are Steren RCAs.

Oh yeah, also a Phoenix Gold cable for the CD player. I really have no brand loyalty at all. As long as it is a well made cable at a good price.
