what optical cable to use for the jb3?
« on: May 30, 2004, 09:39:01 PM »
just ordered a jb3 and was wondering what cable works well w/ the jb3 and doesn't require any modding to the jb3 to get it to fit snug.  

thanks,
justin

any cable, just get the 1/8" optical adapter.  shorter the better.  if you want a really nice one www.bettercables.com makes a really nice one for about 60 bucks.  otherwise your standard monster cable or whatever will work.

I use a monster optical cable and a radio shack mini adaptor and it works fine. No mod needed.
