Buying direct from Amazon you should be 100% fine.  Look for "ships from and sold by Amazon.com."  I've used them for years and have always been a happy customer.   But, buying from an Amazon reseller could introduce a bit of risk.  Though I haven't had any problems myself.  Just check the seller rating and go from there. 
Check out the Shure SRH440   $80 - $90 (US price) Closed / sealed Detachable cable Great sound   My PC is LOUD, so I've really been impressed with how well these seal out the sound of the fans.  I use them for games and music.  On the bass end, with Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl and Diablo 3, I've heard deep bass notes on my 440s that my 2.1s only hint at.
I was intrigued by the Cambridge Audio 350 CD player.  Sounds like it has a proprietary transport mechanism-   It features Cambridge Audio's dedicated audio-only CD transport. This is then coupled to Cambridge Audio's third generation proprietary S3 servo solution, which dynamically adjusts the focusing, tracking, and output level of the laser in real time. This in turn enables maximum retrieval of disc data, guarantees extremely low jitter, and delivers amazingly...
I have the Schiit Asgard and the Denon AH-D2000s hooked up to a CD player and the sound is amazing.   Overall, I've been so impressed with the build quality and sound of the Asgard that now I'm looking into the Bifrost DAC.  Just to, you know, see if I can make this particular system sound amazing-er.  :) 
TONS of reviews of IEMs in the $60 to $100 range here-   http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-240-iems-compared-spiral-ear-se-3-way-reference-added-06-03-12#post_6492051
I bought the Re-zero because it was said to be super detailed.  That seems to be the case.  :)
Yeah, I bet the Monoprice Premium Analog RCA Cable would work for you.  $2.28 for the 1.5 foot cable.  :)     http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021814&p_id=5346&seq=1&format=2   It's 22AWG cable, so I don't know about the flexibility.  I do have a RCA to 3.5mm cable from their premium line, and it seems flexible enough.   Blue Jeans Cable can also get you a 1.5 for RCA cable.  Price is around $30.
Don't know if this will help you or not, but here's what I did on my PC.   FiiO E7 and E9 combo ($180 for both).   USB from my PC to the FiiO gear.  The E7 is an outboard DAC, and the E9 is a headphone amp.   The E9 has RCA outs.  I used one of these cables to interface with the 3.5mm male wire on my 2.1 speaker system-   http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021815&p_id=5612&seq=1&format=2    When I want...
Cool!  
Plenty of headphone use on this show-
