Exclamation coaxial cabl vs RCA cable

want to buy VSX-323-K model, but my concern is that can I provide input audio from another room(away from 30feet) by coaxial cable (or only RCA audio cable required). 2nd, for output can I use coaxial cable (30 feet) for bathroom (without amplifier) without any qauality comromize.

For that distance I'd use digital audio (optical or coaxial) Or another method is streaming audio over your LAN, have a media player in each zone.

Bose Jewel speakers.


Jealous of my speakers?

1. If by "coax" you mean a digital link, then I agree that would be more likely to work than a line-level run, but that is a pretty long run either way. You may have to get a repeater or active cable.
2. If you are talking about a speaker-level output ("no amplifier") then I would use standard 12 or 14 AWG in-wall wire, not coax.

As an aside, RCA cables are almost all "coax" but may or may not be the same coax as used by digital links.

p.s. I have run line-level signals 60' - 100' or so in a professional install. Not a big deal with proper shielding and such. If your room is 30' away, you may end up with 60' of cable, and I do not know the route (how close to other noise sources and such) thus my "pretty long run" comment. I had a 20' run in my room for years using fairly cheap cable, kept away from power lines, and no problems.
