This is probably a really stupid question, but I must ask anyway. I am currently using a Pioneer DVD-563A "univerasal" player (which I don't like by the way). I am using 3 Phoenix Gold Stereo Pairs to connect the 6 inputs for SACD/DVD-A.

Is it a bad idea to use these types of cables? I was thinking it might be better to use 6 individual cables.


Any thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks,

Tony

I've been told that the quality of your audio cables depends on how good your equipment is. Meaning if your reciever and player and speakers are very good, then they are more likely to show flaws. But for your everyday system, I guess it would do fine. I have some cheap cables from Cambridge Soundworks. I will upgrade them when I finnally upgrade my reciever, because honestly, its still Hi-rez audio to my ears.

But what are "Stereo" coax cables generally used for? These particular cables are 2 cabels in one casing. 4 RCA plugs (2 on each end).

Should I be using 6 seperate cable for SACD/DVD-A?

You already have the correct cables.

SACD and DVD-A are simply capable of 6 channels of audio. Using 3 stereo pairs is the easiest way to do that short of buying one of the special 6CH cables. And even then there would be absolutely no difference.

And you could also do 6 seperate cables, but again, it would be pointless.

Oh, see, I thought you meant the quality of the cable, not style. My bad.
