I was at SonyStyle Metreon today, and was surprised to see that the $60 D-NE320 mp3 cd player (linky) had an "optical out" next to the headphone-out, whereas similar models like the D-NE319 and D-NF420 did not - there's just black plastic covering that area.

Forgive my newbie-ness regarding cables, but it looks like it'll require a cable with a flat jack sort of like the kind that connect to the bottom of cellphones. Here's a masterpiece showing headphone jack on left, and optical out on the right (bear in mind the optical out is nowhere near exactly the way it looked, I'm just giving a rough example):



Now does anyone happen to know where and what kind of cable I will need for this optical jack?

Thanks.

That looks like the part where the remote goes into the cd player.

Hm, I don't think it was usb. It's actually labled "optical out" on the black plastic next to the jack. I was going to ask the Sony guy, but somehow I doubted he'd have the answer.

That's what it is. Also, on your link, there's no info on a optical line out. Maybe you found a Japanese version of the same player.

It's the standard remote jack on Sony's equipment (MD, PCDP). I also have the DNE320 and it is the remote jack.
