Meant to send this to the list, not just Aron...

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.

B&H?!?! Cool, thanks! Never would've thought to try them. Tekserve 
was the 1st place I tried, no dice. Apple Store doesn't stock 'em, 
DataVision wanted to sell me SP-DIF cables, & CompUSA, well, it's 


For anybody who's keeping track, it turns out there's really no rush 
on the cables: the arrays won't be initialized until about 10 PM 
Tuesday, which should be about 12 hours after the cables arrive from
