    Hello

    I am about to connect my VCR and PS2 to my Amp via composite leads.....(yes, I know, not the best way, but the only option without switching boxes....)

    Anyway. If I purchase a Composite lead (single Phono to Phono) for the video output, is it the same as using a (High Quality) Phono to Phono lead that is designed for Audio......

    Basically is a composite video lead just one half of an Audio lead?

    if it is, I was wondering whether I could split a decent quality Audio lead, and create two compsite video leads?

    I would be grateful to know before I decide to order new leads....

    Thanks

    It will work, but not as well as a dedicated video/digital lead. The problem is with impedance matching and the much higher frequencys inherent in video.

    Thanks

    I have taken your advice and purchased some decent cables from Lektropacks.
