    I have audio phono cables (Cambridge Audio Pacific and Atlantic). Can I use them as component video cables, or as digital audio cables or will this damage my equipment?

    Hi Doc,

    Analogue audio cables should be 50 Ohm impedence, whereas video cables and digital audio should be 75 Ohm. They will still work, but you won't be getting optimal quality. Hope this helps.
