I stopped by today to look for a few movies, had a 10% off coupon, and decided to go by the video game department. They had racks already designated for the XBOX and GCN. The only thing in the XBOX area were the Monstercables. I picked up the component cables and optical cable.
If you buy the Monster video cables, you must purchase their optical cable just to get the adapter for optical out. The total cost was $105 plus tax, had a coupon that knocked 10% off the component cables. Every little bit helps.

Michael,
Thanks for the info. I'll be picking mine up from there, when I get my damn XBox!

So even if you already have an optical cable, you have to buy the Monster optical cable in order to get an adapter to use optical?!

Yea, optical cable is optical cable. I don't care if you're a cable nut...there's no way to make an optical cable better than another.
I fear I may have opened a can of worms...

Don't worry, Camp. I don't think Mike Knapp reads the Gaming Section.

You can run but you can't hide from cable nuts, we veel track you down...!

No difference you say between optical cables? HAH!
What about the:
Specially designed spring-loaded pressure connector keeps fiber in optical alignment for maximum data transfer?
Rugged Metal Shell Connector for maximum durablity?
Polished fiber termination to reduce digital jitter?
Tuned spectral attenuation for low loss and accurate signal transfer?
High velocity of propagation reduces time smear!
Flexible protective jacket prevents fiber damage!
You just won't find these necessary features on your low end optical cables. Then again...for a gaming system how much of your attention is going to be on the sound...you better have your full attention on your driving and shooting...if it's a good game that is.
