    I am looking into getting some a few digital coax cables off of ebay... do you guys know of a good dealer or at least what brand I should look for?

    The people who wrote the SPDIF specification had a plain video cable in mind (All video cables are 75 ohms). So just get a video cable.

    The custom cable sites can build you some very nice digital cables. You can find them with the links on the Tweeks page or search for "Canare" or "Belden Cables" on eBay.

    Just keep in mind that your system most->least sensitive to these cables in this order:

    Video cables
    Speaker wires
    analog audio interconnects
    coaxial & optical interconnects
    subwoofer interconnects

    So I would rather see you spend less on digital interconnects and more on analog video cables to match the sensitivity of the signals.
