That will work. Or you can get a pair, and just use 1, with 1 to use later or as a spare. If the pair are bonded together you can easily pull them apart to have individual cables.
Another suggestion - if you have other audiophile friends, I would wager they have extra RCA's lying around that you could use. I know I have more than a few I could give to someone in need (if you ever come to the states). Most of us have far more cables than we actually need...

Personally I like Monoprice's Monoliths. They are excellent. Anything more, for me, would be overkill. I've tried a lot from the $200 range down to $5. Even tried silver-coated copper at one point. Monolith's are just fine.
I wish to ask you about connecting emotiva mc-700 with a-700 amp. Can I use this cable from Qed (https://www.avstore.ro/cabluri-audio/qed-performance-digital-audio-1m/) to connect them?....so it will be 7 cables.
I can't find good single rca cables, just stereo - red and white- so can this qed coaxial do the job?
Sorry if I ask this in wrong section and if you can tell me about other cables that would work just fine I'll really appreciate it.
You can use it, but is probably overkill. The cables you list fare for SPDIF digital content. The connection from the MC to the A700 is low level analog. I would suggest some cables from Monoprice.

Hi-I have been using the MC-700 for 1 week in my set-up (It shipped with firmware 3.1.3). Overall good equipment and value and relatively easy to use. No complaints and would recommend if the below Problem is eventually rectified:
First, I used the Automated Emo-Q service and was pretty satisfied-and only did some minor bass management tweaking. I use a 2.1 speaker set-up. All HDMI cables are spec. 2.0a or b
Now onto the less-desirable traits: -HDMI 2.0 sources that use 2.2 CEC does not function properly. I use a Roku Stick and a 4K UHD Blu-Ray player. When I go directly from the Roku or Blu-Ray to any of the HDMI 2.0 ("commercial 4K") inputs I either get no sound, no video or no both! To solve I have to randomly turn off sources such as TV, Emotiva and/or disconnect-reconnect the HDMI cable from Roku. Anytime source material changes, example: one episode finishes and another episode begins of a series, either the audio, video or both are lost-and so we begin again. This is all accompanied by pops and clicks from the speakers.
(NOTE-all works fine using the HDMI "non-commercial 4k" inputs, but I lose 4K video, of course).
I almost returned the unit, but finally decided to input all 4K sources to the TV (LG OLED CX series) and use the eARC/ARC for sound return back to the MC-700. Everything works fine now.
The Manual and literature, as well as the label on the MC-700 HDMI input is marked as only ARC. So I assume it does not support eARC bandwidth.
This is not my desired set-up with HDMI sources, but for the quality/value relationship in a processor I can't beat it for under $1000.
Hope this Helps
