    Would using a component cable as an interconnect for an external amp better than using a cheap RCA cable from radioshack? I currently own a Denon 3803 and are using the preouts with component cables to my exteral parasound amp. My question is that would this setup ruin my speakers or equipment, and does it make the audio sound worst or better?

    Chances are, you won't see any difference whatsoever. Give it a try. You can't hurt anything!

    Component cable is usually higher quality than most "std" audio interconnects because it's always shielded, coax, usually RG-6 or RG-59 cable. In fact, www.bluejeanscable.com uses this very stuff for audio interconnects.

    But. Some of the Radio Shack stuff is quite good too.
