I've got a Pioneer DJM800 (see rear connections) mixer at home, and would like to record some mixtapes to my stationary computer that's 10 meters away. I'm considering getting a 10 metre RCA-to-3.5 mm cable and connect it to my computer. (The computer's speakers will also work as monitors).
Are there any considerations that I should note before making a purchase of cable? More specifically, I'm wondering:
- Will the 10 metre cable length have a detrimental effect on the quality of the recording?
- Should I consider getting gold- or silver-plated contacts?
- Anything else?
I should perhaps add that this is a relatively minor matter – I'm not super-serious about doing my recordings. With that said, I'd still like to make sure that the solution I'm getting is adequate.
I'm not considering any expensive upgrades, such as getting an external soundcard with XLR contacts and so forth, for this particular purpose.
