    I am getting an coaxial interconnect for between my DVD player and my AV amp and have heard good things about the VAN DEN HUL "THE FIRST - METAL SCREEN".

    According the Van Den Hul http://www.vandenhul.com/cable/frst-u.htm and the shop I go to says that the VDH "THE FIRST - Metal Screen" is 75 Ohm, and the distributor also said it was but... they would wouldn't they? Here is what it says on the product itself:

    "Ideal for... SPDIF digital audio interconnect (75 Ohm)..."

    Is this the right kind of connection cable for what I need it for? DVD to AV amp?

    Thanks. I was worried because they don't make a big thing out of this being a 75 Ohm cable. I thik most coaxial / digital cables are 75 Ohm though aren't they?
