    Default hk 3490 help please

    So, i bought this from member on here, its an excellent piece of equipment. While testing out an amp with it, using the preouts, one of the RCA jumpers on the back fell apart, just pulling it off. Now, i replace them with a cheapo RCA cable from a VCR or DVD player. My question is this, does anyone have 6-10 inches of RCA cable and 4 male ends, and would they be willing to part with them, i will pay. Hoping this will be an upgrade and a fix at the same time, as i know how the cheapo cables i have are hurting any sort of sound quality im getting from my Monitor 30's or pro-monitor800s. I have it set up to switch between the two for music or HT.

    Sorry to hear that the jumper pulled apart. You can always go with the solid one's like the factory uses as well.

    true, but if its something worth doing, its something worth overdoing, right, and its ok man, my dad uses it for netflix and espn right now, and the occaisional bluray, in an open room, poor speaker placement, and a 32 inch 720P tv, its not crucial, just wanna have some fun really, and lear how to make an RA cable
