Got it. I opted for the Oehlbach because a friend endorsed it. They are expensive, but i spent so much time on this, i wish i bought the expensive cable right away. I had to make some changes to my setup to work with the 3m cable (i used to have the 5m, but it gave nothing but problems as you can see). Perhaps a cheaper 3m also works, but the Oehlbach will last a lifetime (i hope).
