Digital Coax... $2 vs $30

I have a CD player and DVD player that have digital output capability (via Coax) along with a receiver that can input both. Since I noticed that the digital coaxial cables have he exact same connectors as regular old RCA cables, I decided to try using an old $2 cable instead of running out and spending $30 on a 3' coaxial cable. Everything appears to be working fine. Personally, I doubt there would be bandwidth issues over a 3' range.

However, I am uncertain as to any impedence mismatch problems that could occur (if any). Is there any reason why I shouldn't be using a regular old RCA cable? Is there any possibility of damaging my equipment by doing so?
