    Anyone know of a good source (cheap) for these babies? I've paid through the nose for them in the past.

    Since they are an Alesis exclusive, guess what ?


    No, and probably never will.

    You can use any optical cable. I use a monster optical cable. Sending 8 tracks via optical is an Alesis exclusive.

    Doesn't the ADAT type have square ends? Other formats I've seen have round ends.

    you can get optical cables at walmart now. I've often wondered if there's really any difference between the cheap and expensive optical cables...

    No... there is only one type of ADAT optical connection.

    That's what I thought. You can't use just any optical cable for an ADAT connection. Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, etc. are not likely to carry them.

    So, anyone know of a good source (web retailer) for them?
