I got a box of cables, they all have RCA heads, but the cable itself is very thin. I also cut one open to see what it has on the inside, and i've also attached a picture.

Are these really high end cables or are they meant for something special?

Thanks

By the look of it you have a recording snake there, which use as small a diameter wire as possible since so many are bundled together.

the picture doesn't show how many cables i have. also, each one is an individual cable.

I think it was made by signature cables, which is out of business?

the rca cable is a single wire, not mini strands. Also, disregard the color of the cable. Most of them are just all black.

I meant the mini strands being the colored jacketed wire, not the copper inside.
Anyway, it's mini coax. Most likey RG59.

Having whatever that large diameter black cable that appears to be a snake there confuses the issue.
