    I'm wanting to buy an AirPort Express to stream my iTunes to my stereo, etc, but I was wanting a cheaper alternative to the 30-40$ Monster cables Apple links to. I was hoping someone who has done this, or is more familiar with the Express station,could provide information on a cheaper set of cables that will work, or tell me if these will.

    Those cables will work just fine. :)

    Are you connecting it to a high-end stereo/receiver? APE has optical. You might want to look into that.

    Unfortunately, my receiver doesn't have an optical port; it was only 300 bucks or so, and is a few years old. Disappointing, since now even cheap 50$ DVD players seem to have it - I guess it wasn't as popular/mainstream then, as it is now?
