    I bought the profigold pdg4000 digital interconnect but I'm not sure it's a coaxial. On the box it says rca-rca digital interconnect for the ultimate in sound, cd, sacd, dvd and home cinema.

    On the net it is called the Profigold pdg4000 Oxypure Coaxial. Is this a cable I could use to connect my dvd player and amp via the coaxial inputs? Would it transfer the surround signals??
    On the box is says Oxypure also and the picture that is on the net is the picture of the box but on the box itself it doesn't say coaxial...

    Please help!!

    yes it does. I was at work earlier and couldn't open the box to check anything so I posted here. I've since I've come home connected the dvd (pio 565) to my new amp (sony db790) and it's working like a charm. Now on to replacing the middle speaker, back speakers and adding a sub. My fronts are B&W 602...

    thanks for the reply!!

    All RCA to RCA cables are coaxial from a technical point of view but usually "Coaxial/Coax" refers to a type of digital connection.
    "Digital coaxial interconnects" should have an impedance of 75 Ohms (same as video).
