    Can I buy two sets of component video cables and use them as my cables for dvd-audio, instead of buying three pairs of stereo audio cables?

    I am going to be using AR Pro series cables, and it'll end up being a little cheaper if I do it this way. Just want to make sure using the video cables won't cause any audio signal degredation. It shouldn't, but I just wanted to be safe.

    I'm pretty sure component cables use different impedance then audio cables, but I would think your situation would work. It actually sounds like a good idea from your point of view. I don't think AR sells 6 cable DVD-A/SACD sets, do they?

    I know all video cables (and coax digital audio) are made with 75 ohm cables, and audio cables are can be made with 75 ohm cables since most companies find it easy to use the same cables for everything. But you could find some audio cables that have a higher or lower impedance if you look hard enough.
