What would be considered higher quality for VHS transfer

Coaxial>CaptureCard or RCA>CaptureCard?

I've done a couple tests & the only difference i've noticed is the audio comes through louder with the Coaxial. the audio & video quality appear to be the same though. i just wanted to know for sure which would be considered better.

Re: What would be considered higher quality for VHS transfer

i'm assuming by "coaxial" yer referring to yer standard F-connector cablebox/tv-style cord and "RCA" being composite [yellow/red/white]

answer to yer ? is--it depends on a number factors such as proper impedance & shielding, distance of cable, etc...but given decent quality cable/proper impedance/short distance, you won't really notice a differenece
