I am going nuts trying to find these wires. I basically have a laptop with a single 1/8"(3.5mm) output. I am trying to connect to it two active monitors that have 1/4" outputs and I cannot find a cable that splits 1/8" into 1/4"s. Does anyone know where can I find such a cable? The closest I have seen is this: http://www.samash.com/webapp/wcs/stores/...iates-_-na-_-na

Which means that I have to get a 1/8 to 1/4 adapter, then connect the above adapter, and then connect my speakers! There must be a direct wire. Also, even the above link won't work since the cables are not available right now. I would really appreciate if someone could give me a purchase link for what I'm looking for. In Google, my search terms were: 1/8 to 1/4 splitter, adapter, 3.5mm, etc. Am I not using the correct words?

RadioShack sells a cable that splits a 3.5mm stereo jack into two RCA phono plugs. They also sell a RCA-1/4" plug adaptor. So with one of the former and two of the latter, you have what you need.

They also sell a 3.5mm stereo jack to two mono 3.5mm splitter which you could use with two mono 3.5mm to 1/4" adaptors.
