Yes, that's them. I also looked for them and couldn't find them
at Digi-Key. Allied carries them, though:

I assume Cox recommends them because his experience has shown
them to be reliable, simple, and tough. High current connectors tend
to be big, and big is good for HV.
Not cheap? Try finding a cheap, plug-in connector rated for
25kV! Other possibility would be to adapt automotive spark plugs/wiring.
I think if one chose the pin jack and sleeve plug (reversed from
normal genders), one would gain some extra "creepage distance" for HV
