    My understanding is that Apple's mini-display port doesn't pass audio through, so at best you would have the image pass through, but no audio.

    If you have one of the latest MacBook this would be your best bet. I currently own one and have no regrets, works great and is plug and play.

    imma agree with the monoprice.com suggestion. great quality for fair prices. monster, etc. are overpriced.
