    I am buying new cables for my system and now I am down to replacing my digital audio RCA cable from my Laserdisk and DVD players. Since I only need a single cable for each what type of cable should I buy? I was thinking either 2 RCA video cables or 1 pair of RCA audio cables and split them.
    I don't know what type of impedence or any other technical specs of the cables I should use.
    I am going to be buying Acoustic Research cables for everything. I want good cables, but I can't afford much more then their cost.
    Thanks,
    Mark

    Mark,
    Go with two composite video cables. Video and digital coax both require 75 ohm impedance, and most RCAs are typically 110ohm.
    Hope this helps.
