Well, my post in the Acoustic Research interconnect thread seems to have faded away, so I'm just starting my own to hopefully get an answer. I'm wondering if theres a consensus on what works better for A/V cable- "digital" coax (all three wires) or the twisted pair (coax video, twisted pair audio)? Particularly, I'm trying to decide if the cheapo "Digital" RCA (RCA/Thomson Electronics) brand cables available at Target, Home Depot, etc. are better/worse/same as say Standard or Pro grade Acoustic Research cables available at Sears, and Target too. The RCAs are "digital" coax, the ARs are coax video/twisted pair audio. I'm just needing 3ft/1m cables to connect my Pioneer DVD player to my Pioneer Surround Receiver, so I'm not sure if it will make that big of a deal, but if theres a definite answer one way or the other, I'd like to know. BTW, I'm just asking one way or the other- NOT trying to start a cable brand/price debate!
