    PAS 2/3/3X input selector wiring

    Re-wiring the input selector on a PAS 2/3/X is a somewhat "fiddly" job. I see lots of PAS input selectors wired without twisting pairs or using shielded wire or coax. I wonder why that is.

    I am about to replace the RCA I/O board and would be interested in hearing about your experiences with twisted pairs versus individually shielded wire before I dive in.

    we use and sell 24gauge pre twisted pair hookup wires. Easy to use and works very good.
    You ground the RCA socket end, the selector switch end, you curl back the ground wire, usually the white wire, see photo
