Good Source for DT aerolite or CX Ray spokes?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Alchemy Bicycle Works has good prices on Sapim spokes. But no web store; you have to call/email. Everyone says that they have great service but I have not bought from them yet.
Brandon at BikeHubStore says he'll be carrying CXrays soon. He only has Lasers now. Dunno what "soon" is.
Wheelbuilder.com has both the DTs and CXrays at reasonable prices but their shipping is not cheap for spokes.

I actually I'm still on the fence about CX rays/aerolite or lasers/resolution. This wheelset is just to test out the wider rim and would likely be a daily rider for me. Ultimately, if I like the diff., if there is any, I'll prolly consider building a set of HED Belgians for a more 'comp' wheelset - and those would for sure go with aero spokes.
wheelbuilder I've noted, I'll call Alchemy and check bikehubstore also.
I may just go with round spokes on this set...
