Supra DB25 Cables - for specific AV processors and multi-channel amplifiers

These are now discontinued but if you still want to buy one of these cables:

Our own Cables Outlet webshop (opens in new window), where you can buy specific cables at discounted prices, (these are mainly: end of line, ex-demo or ex-review or just end of reel offcuts) is now ONLINE


In the early days of Home Cnema systems, manufacturers had issues fitting enough sockets on the back of processors, in order to accomodate user needs.

So, many used a standard DB25 connector, which carried 6 channels of sound (and NO video!!) into or out of an AV processor or a 5 or 6 channel power amp.

Various brands used these connectors, such as Arcam, Rotel and Onkyo.

A list of matching products follows:

Arcam

Onkyo

Rotel RSX965 receiver
(has DB25F socket for multi-channel audio input from DVD player)

Rotel RSP966 processor
(has a DB25F (Female) socket for input from DVD player and a DB25M (Male) socket for output to power amp)

Rotel RB985 multi-channel power amp
(has DB25F (Female) socket for input from processor and hence requires a DB25M (Male) plug)


Option 1:
Cable terminated from DB25F to DB25M (going from DB25M (Male socket on processor) to DB25F (Female input socket on power amp))

Option 2:
Cable terminated from 6RCA/phono to DB25M (going from DVD player with on-board sound processing (using RCA sockets) going to AV surround decoder/processor (using DB25F socket))

Option 3:
DB25F to 6 RCA/phono cable (going from AV processor (using DB25M (Male) output socket) going to multi-channel power amplifier (using 6 RCA input sockets))
