Need a source for a cable...(stereo-mini to RCA)

I'm trying to locate a stereo-mini to RCA cable (like the one found here, but I need it to be longer). The best I've been able to locate is about 5' long. I need something about 12' long (and possibly a longer one, as well). I'd like to try to do this one piece of cable, rather than using a stereo min or RCA extension.

Can anyone recommend a good online resource to locate such an animal? I know some time back I'd seem a place that would custom make one - of course, that was more expensive than I'd prefer...plus I can't seem to find where that was, anyway.

Don't you have a Radio Shack you can go to? They may have that cable, you can check online, but I've found searching for something there to be really difficult.

You can make it also. I would just cut an old headphones and RCA and get out the soldering iron.

Get one of those Y-adapters you showed us, and then buy a nice long HEADPHONE EXTENSION CORD. I got a 25 foot one (not a coiled telephone-cord-like one) on Canal St once for 5 bucks (w/haggling) in Chinatown and it was perfect for listening to my PC's mp3s out of my Home Theater which was on the other side of the room. It broke recently when I yanked it a little too hard, but when it worked it was a little too suceptible to interference for my tastes but worked nonetheless. Since I can't find a long headphone ext. cord anymore, I'm just going to use a 20ft rca audio cable along with two rca to rca couplers with that y-adapter to get the job done.
