If I were in the U.S., I certainly would do that.  As it is, I'm in Chile; if I can even find something similar here, it will likely be more expensive (I found one so far, but it's a high-end 5.1 model and costs USD$40), and ordering from the U.S. is a multiweek turnaround time. Hence, I decided to ask first and suffer the wrath of the list for "asking the obvious".
