Default Redirect a category to another category

Hi,

We have a musical instrument shop and are looking for a way to have categories appear in multiple places - without the need to maintain assigning the products in these multiple categories.

For Example we have a main category of "Studio" and a sub category of "Headphones" and a sub/sub category of that called "DJ Headphones"

We also have a main category of "DJ Equipment". We would like to add the sub category "DJ Headphones" in there. However I don't want to have to maintain placing products in both categories going forward. Also we have many categories on the site already to maintain (and over 5000 products)

If I create the category "DJ Equipment > DJ Headphones" can I make it re-direct to "Studio > Headphones > DJ Headphones"?

Thanks

Dave

The easiest way I can think of to do this would be a .htaccess redirect.
