    Don't want this to turn into a "which cable is better" discussion, but this interconnect provides an interesting "6-in-1" connection for multichannel audio. It's found on IXOS' site, under "Home Theater Cables" if you follow this link:
    IXOS Cables
    Common sense tells me to go with individual RCA's for DVD-Audio and SACD (I am getting both), but it's selling at accesories4less.com for a reasonable price ($55 for 1m), and it appears to be a decent and well constructed interconnect. Any thoughts or experiences?
    I've looked at AudioQuest Sidewinders, Bettercables, CatCables, and Tributaries, but when you have to buy anywhere from 6 to ultimately 24 of these cables to support both formats, costs get pretty high. Unfortunately, I can't really demo my candidates, and from previous experiences I'm not a big fan of RatShack, Monster, or AR cables. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    The IXOS are ok... Monster and CatCables are about the same... better are the Tributaries and I would give the nod to AudioQuest and BetterCables... I am currently using the BetterCables. Replaced AudioQuest with BetterCables and have found them of exceptional quality and a great value for the level of performance they provide which is top-notch...

    BTW,

    BetterCables has a 30-day money back policy...

    Thanks for your suggestions, I think I'm going to go for some Audioquest Sidewinders for now...
