Coax = Threaded Connector for most things here in the US.
Composite = RCA
They do however make coaxial digital cable for audio that look like RCA's
for higher end sound....which is confusing.

coax is. All the composite cables I have are coax. Here in
the US, composite video connectors on AV gear are always
coaxial connectors (commonly called "RCA jacks").
