I have been using 3 RCA Phono plugs to connect my DVD to my TV, via the component connections. They cost about £40 and are gold plated etc etc. They work just fine. However I was told by some spotty sales rep that I must have "component cables". I checked, and to my mind they are just the same as rca phono plugs I use anyway. They box is just labelled Component Connectors. My guess is they are one and the same, but at £60 maybe a tad more quality. In no idiot, but no expert either, so am I being conned into making an unneccessary purchase? Can I assume that if I bought the highest quality and most expensive rca cables that money could buy, I could use them on any number of rca connectors that I wished .i.e. Component, Composite or Audio rca connectors?
