An RF cable is a basic cable used primarily for carrying audio-visual signals. The name comes from an abbreviation of "radio frequencies." It is a type of coaxial cable, which involves a series of casings to protect the signal from interference.
The coaxial design used in an RF cable is designed to prevent potential interference. To counteract this, the coaxial cable uses four circular layers. From the inside to the outside they are: the wire carrying the signal; an insulating material which is usually solid plastic; a metal shield; and a plastic casing which protects the materials inside.
RF cables have several important drawbacks. It can only carry sound between two devices in mono rather than stereo. As well as being unable to produce a stereo signal, this also means it can't carry surround sound information broadcast in Dolby Pro Logic. This means that if an RF cable is used, it is impossible to get true surround sound audio even when using a decoding receiver.
