I remember someone posted a site not too long ago who have them in stock currently. Were going for like 130 USD or something I think.

I might go with a broadband adapter from Japan. But I just want to be sure, would a HIT-0401 from Japan work with a US dreamcast?

I'd suggest you to get a Coder's Cable, since they're a lot cheaper, but if you are planning to play online, too, then a BBA should be great.

Ebay is the way to go - you can definitely get it for cheaper than $160 from the link to estarland - usually your best bet to get it at a good price (barely over $100) is on auctions that end really really late at night where you come in at the end for a snipe. - That is how I got Trigger Heart Exelica last month for $50 instead of $80. Good luck!
