I am planning on getting a new shelf stereo system, and both of the two I have narrowed it down to only have a 3.5mm input and no RCA input. I thought this was kind of strange. If I use an RCA to 3.5mm cable to connect a DVD player or an Xbox 360 to the stereo will I experience any loss of sound quality?

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section

a well made shielded audio cable with stereo 3.5mm plug on one end and standard RCA male connectors (to connect to the external sources) will work just fine.

I've used that exact cable and the results were great. going from my pc soundcard to a receiver.
