Poor audio connection  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Well build product thats simple enough to build, I had problems no matter what mono 1/8" connector i used to insert into the jacks there was noise, any movement of the wires produced static and this occured on every port input or output. I removed the cover only to find a very odd looking jack which used a simple aluminum strip to make contact at the plug tip, I'd have not seen these before. They offered only a small contact area and the contact point flexed very easily. I replaced all the jacks with good jacks bought from Mouser and all worked fine. For the price paid I'd have thought BHI could have used better designed industry standard mono jacks.
