An amplifier, electronic amplifier or (informally) amp is an electronic device that can increase the power of a signal (a time-varying voltage or current).
In physics, attenuation or, in some contexts, extinction is the gradual loss of flux intensity through a medium.
An audio multicore cable (often colloquially referred to in the US and Canada as a snake cable or just a snake) is a thick cable which contains from four to 64 individual audio cables inside a common, sturdy outer jacket.
A banana connector (commonly banana plug for the male, banana socket or banana jack for the female) is a single-wire (one conductor) electrical connector used for joining wires to equipment.
The bass guitar (also known as electric bass, or bass) is a stringed instrument similar in appearance and construction to an electric guitar, except with a longer neck and scale length, and four to six strings or courses.
The BNC (Bayonet Neill–Concelman) connector is a miniature quick connect/disconnect radio frequency connector used for coaxial cable.
In a fiber optic cable, a buffer is one type of component used to encapsulate one or more optical fibers for the purpose of providing such functions as mechanical isolation, protection from physical damage and fiber identification.
Cable management refers to management of electrical or optical cable in a cabinet or an installation.
Category 5 cable, commonly referred to as Cat 5, is a twisted pair cable for computer networks.
Category 6 cable, commonly referred to as Cat 6, is a standardized twisted pair cable for Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards.
Cross-sectional view of a coaxial cable Coaxial cable, or coax (pronounced), is a type of electrical cable that has an inner conductor surrounded by a tubular insulating layer, surrounded by a tubular conducting shield.
A crossover cable connects two devices of the same type, for example DTE-DTE or DCE-DCE, usually connected asymmetrically (DTE-DCE), by a modified cable called a crosslink.
A disc jockey, often abbreviated as DJ, is a person who plays existing recorded music for a live audience.
A drum machine is an electronic musical instrument that creates percussion.
An effects unit or effects pedal is an electronic or digital device that alters the sound of a musical instrument or other audio source.
An electric guitar is a guitar that uses one or more pickups to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals.
An electric piano is an electric musical instrument which produces sounds when a performer presses the keys of the piano-style musical keyboard.
An electrical cable is an assembly of one or more wires running side by side or bundled, which is used to carry electric current.
In physics and electrical engineering, a conductor is an object or type of material that allows the flow of an electrical current in one or more directions.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI), also called radio-frequency interference (RFI) when in the radio frequency spectrum, is a disturbance generated by an external source that affects an electrical circuit by electromagnetic induction, electrostatic coupling, or conduction.
Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN) and wide area networks (WAN).
An Ethernet crossover cable is a crossover cable for Ethernet used to connect computing devices together directly.
Fusion splicing is the act of joining two optical fibers end-to-end using heat.
In electrical engineering, ground or earth is the reference point in an electrical circuit from which voltages are measured, a common return path for electric current, or a direct physical connection to the earth.
Headphones (or head-phones in the early days of telephony and radio) are a pair of small loudspeaker drivers worn on or around the head over a user's ears.
An instrument amplifier is an electronic device that converts the often barely audible or purely electronic signal of a musical instrument into an audible sound.
A microphone, colloquially nicknamed mic or mike, is a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal.
A modular connector is an electrical connector that was originally designed for use in telephone wiring, but has since been used for many other purposes.
An optical fiber or optical fibre is a flexible, transparent fiber made by drawing glass (silica) or plastic to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair.
An optical fiber cable, also known as a fiber optic cable, is an assembly similar to an electrical cable, but containing one or more optical fibers that are used to carry light.
An optical fiber connector terminates the end of an optical fiber, and enables quicker connection and disconnection than splicing.
A patch panel, patch bay, patch field or jack field is a device or unit featuring a number of jacks, usually of the same or similar type, for the use of connecting and routing circuits for monitoring, interconnecting, and testing circuits in a convenient, flexible manner.
A phone connector, also known as phone jack, audio jack, headphone jack or jack plug, is a family of electrical connectors typically used for analog audio signals.
A public address system (PA system) is an electronic system comprising microphones, amplifiers, loudspeakers, and related equipment.
An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector or (in other languages) Cinch connector, is a type of electrical connector commonly used to carry audio and video signals.
A router is a networking device that forwards data packets between computer networks.
Stripping is the act of removing the protective polymer coating around optical fiber in preparation for fusion splicing.
A synthesizer (often abbreviated as synth, also spelled synthesiser) is an electronic musical instrument that generates electric signals that are converted to sound through instrument amplifiers and loudspeakers or headphones.
Video is an electronic medium for the recording, copying, playback, broadcasting, and display of moving visual media.
The XLR connector is a style of electrical connector, primarily found on professional audio, video, and stage lighting equipment.
