OK = glad we sorted that out.
Meantime, the cable I recall now is a Mini 5 by AudioQuest - out of production, it was a closeout
at musicdirect. 3 meter cable for $59.00 from $249.00 IIRC.
A big debate going on in the MDR-1R thread...
I haven't (yet) heard the MDR-1R's, but definitely intend to very soon
(seems that they're available now only at full list price from amazon or sony)
