Not all AV cables are the same. In the following paragraphs is a description of the different types of cables and connectors available.

Audio signal cables: Audio signal cables are screened, meaning the outer conductor wraps around the other conductor(s) to shield them from electromagnetic interference.

In addition to cables that are specifically designed to transmit audio or video, you can buy an audio video cable that can transmit both types of signals (colloquially you might refer to this as a composite av cable).

How do av cables work? AV cables can be of various types, depending on the number of sound channels, how many video channels and the amount of control signals. AV cables are used to connect display sources to output like TV or speakers. When looking at av input cable, they are often colour-coded. Yellow is used for composite video, red for the right audio channel, and white or black for the left channel of stereo audio. This trio (or pair) of jacks can often be found on the back of audio and video equipment.

Data cables: Amber’s complete range of data cables from Australian Monitor and Liberty AV, enable you to transmit information between a computer and server with ease.

Musical instrument cables: Our diverse range of musical instrument and pro audio cables from Australian Monitor, AmberTec,  CanareProelRockboard and Van Damme can be used for a multitude of purposes.

Our musical instrument cables are the perfect accessory for our Warwick and Framus, and Sadowsky guitars and can be teamed with an instrument microphone and guitar speakers.

Connectors: Our range of connectors from Australian MonitorCanareLiberty AVNeutrikProelRean, and Rockboard are built to last. From broadcast and professional stage production quality, commercial installation projects to home hifi speaker systems, our range of connectors suit any type of AV cabling requirement.

Neutrik is the market leader in the design and manufacture of audio, coaxial, power and circular connector systems. They have an unmatched reputation that is based on their R&D approach of always being 'one step ahead' by understanding and solving future market needs before they arise.

Connectors and adaptors can sometimes be confused. Connectors join two or more cables together or connect a cable to a device.

Adapters change the way a cable plugs into a device like computers, if the connector that is installed on the cable is not compatible. An AV cable adapter (also known as an av cord adapter or av adapter cable) is a handy way to make existing pieces of equipment compatible and connect to each other. Our brands offering adapters are Neutrik, Rean, Australian Monitor, AudioQuest, Liberty and Rockboard.

Digital Audio Converters (DACs): Also known as digital-to-analog converters, these connection tools from HDAnywhere and One For All convert a digital signal to an analog signal. These converters are available in Bluetooth and USB options and with TOSLINK inputs and Coax outputs and are one of the great accessories for your audio setup.
