    The iBasso CB07 is a really nice cable and the one I would pick for this job. The Fiio L3 is not quite as good but is considerably cheaper. Fiio L9 is a right angled version of the same LOD cable.

    Russ Andrews GQ-24 is supposed to be really nice but a bit too long. I hope that helps.:)

    iPod connectors

    The Russ Andrews has options for miniplug or RCA connectors (which is the input to most amps). The other two have miniplugs only (referred to as minijacks it seems), which would require an additional cable (bad) for most amps.

    Did I miss anything here?

    I should also note I paid $77 USD a couple years ago for such cable from Firestone audio, and that cable does not work with newer iPods, iPhone, or any iPads.

    That one looks OK. The trouble is that the proof is in the pudding - only hearing the cable is going to tell you if it is any good. I wouldn't buy one unless you can get an opinion on it. This ebay shop looks like it probably sells quite a few, there must be some trustworthy feedback about the cable.
