I'm sure this is going to sound pretty ignorant, but with is the deal with jack quality?
I've generally bought 2 kinds, the cheapest from Mammoth and the cheapest from Tayda. They seem to solder well, take up about the same space, I plug in, I unplug...
What's the "quality" of the jacks that would make you spend 3-10 times as much?
Note that I am not arguing the point, as I'm still fairly new at this, but rather I'm curious as to why I should buy different ones, Neutrik, for example.
