    I am looking for something to connect my Pioneer 656a DVD 6 channel analogue out for SACD / DVD-A to my receiver "external decoder" inputs.

    The obvious is 3x 2 phono/RCA to 2 phono/RCA, but would something like an Ixos 2.5m 175AV 6RCA - 6RCA do as well?

    I think this is really designed for compnent video, but if it would be comparable it makes for a neater and slighly cheaper solution.

    Also is 2m rather than the 0.75 or 1m length that I need an issue worth worrying about?

    Many thanks in anticipation

    The IXOS (this one, right ? ) cable is designed for what you want - I use one myself and it does the job. It's a tidy solution, and doesn't cost a bomb.

    Cheers, Carl.

    As cwick says, the 6RCA leads are designed for what you want.

    The 3RCA leads you mention are designed either to carry component video, or composite video with stereo audio.

    Thanks guys - I think I will go for it.

    (just to clarify, I meant three sets of 2RCA to 2RCA's as the alternative, which will cost me £75 minimum, possibly much more).
