    I have just purchased an Xonar DX but the 3.5mm ports are very tightly packed together. I need to connect four in a row for 7.1 output but none of my current cables fit. The plastic base is too fat to fit them side-by-side.

    Here is the backplate of the sound card.

    I've had a jump on eBay but can't really tell from the pictures which cables are going to fit.

    Has anybody else run into this problem recently? Anybody know where I can find cables that are sure to fit? I'm either after 3.5mm jack to RCA cables or even just a really short 3.5mm male to female jack cable so that I can use some of my existing cables.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks to next010 and BoUnCiNBeN for the posts.

    The solution was seemingly quite simple - I needed the word 'slim' accompanying my searches. I bought 4 'slim' 3.5mm jack male to female leads.

    Thanks again.
