As you probably figured, I am feeling quite bitter about the audio quality of the Xbox 360. I have seen several listings on eBay for the AX720 for cheap, however they do not include the inline cable. Is the inline cable needed, or are there cheap workarounds?
Any suggestions or alternatives are welcome. I have already purchased a monoprice optical/rca block, and the AX720 is only going for $10-$20.
