    I don't think $37 is unreasonable considering others are selling at $60+. But I too am curious to see if anyone has ordered and tested it.

    :O!

    Definitely ordering this. Also, you can search anywhere but monoprice.com is always the cheapest place for cables :)

    I want to get this, but Macbook Pro can't pass Digital Audio right? Monoprice says that the item supports Digital but Pro can't output it right?

    The audio out in the MacBook Pro is also a mini optical port so it can support digital audio :p

    Exactly. All current MBP's feature an "Apple MiniJack" so they have digital input and output capabilities.

    but this cable gets sound from the usb port, so the optical out doesnt mean a whole lot in this case..

    The adapter in question pulls audio from a USB port. (ie. it also has a builtin USB audio device that it combines with the display information coming out of the MDP)

    That's sick.

    Relznuk, don't forget to give us a review! I want to know how good the sound is. :D

    Will do! I'll be hooking this up to my HDTV, but I don't have 7.1 or even 5.1: just the two speakers built into my HDTV. But I will certainly review that aspect for you all!
