    I tried to find a link to the cable thinking it might be some type of proprietary cable.

    I think this is it. Not sure if the image will show.

    It looks just like a standard mini jack plugs. I forget what size they normally are (1/8"???). Check the manual to verify.

    You can probably just pick some up at Radio Shack if you have one locally or just order from monoprice. Color obviously won't matter but would be easier just to keep the right plug in the right port.

    I am pretty sure. Look at this picture.

    Notice the green one has an extraa black "band" near the tip. That would be for stereo (instead of mono).

    I am pretty sure this is the cable you need.

    Of course, you would need 3 if your sound card supports all channels.



    I am a little surprised RS said they don't carry this. maybe I shouldn't be but the one around here is half way decent.
