Optimal Signal Transfer
In addition to its durable, protective, black PVC exterior, the cable features buffer tubing and corrosion-resistant, gold-plated connectors for a distortion-free stream of fiber-optic digital audio. Compared to ordinary electrical wires where there can be electromagnetic or radio frequency interference, the signal is more pure, offering clearer audio for a more genuine rendering of the originally recorded sound.
Thoughtfully constructed, the AmazonBasics Digital Optical Audio Toslink Cable provides connector grips for easy handling; a lightweight, flexible form; and removable rubber tips that protect the cable when it's not plugged in. To use, simply connect each end to its respective port on a compatible device and it's ready to go. Choose from a variety of sizes including 6-feet long (1.8 meters), 9.8-feet long (3 meters), and 3.3-feet long (1 meter) (each sold separately).
The AmazonBasics Digital Optical Audio Toslink Cable works with most standard and high-definition devices fitted with Toslink ports. Use it with anything from high-def gaming systems and LCD flat-panel TVs to Blu-ray/DVD players and satellite/cable boxes. The cable's multi-channel connection will even send a Dolby Digital or DTS soundtrack to an audio processor or A/V receiver so you can enjoy a sensational surround-sound experience. The cable is compatible with S/PDIF and ADAT's, as well.

The cable is high quality, long, and very flexible and has nicely constructed connectors. And it is about 1/4 the cost of radio sxxxx and bsst buy, both being rip-off artists on items like cables.
Its things like this that will make me a prime return customer. Who can't wait 2 days to save big bucks??
The cable feels like high quality, is nicely flexible, and produces a sound quality that is crystal clear on my system.
Just be sure that you take the little rubberized tips off of each end before you try plugging them in. The cable should look like the product picture (no rubber tips) before you actually plug the ends in.
PS. I can't imagine anyone stumbling across this that doesn't know what they are for, but for those who are unsure of where these go... look for the little half inch or so square on your equipment that has a port which looks like the end of a barn (for lack of a better description). Of course, it could be turned sideways or upside down, so I will simply post a picture of an optical port for those who aren't sure.
2. Remove the cable
3. Remove the twistie tie (counter-clockwise rotation is critical for success)
4. REMOVE THE PLASTIC NIBS covering the connectors
5. Plug one end into your TV optical port and the other end into the electronic device of your choice
6. Enjoy the show
These AmazonBasics cables are the cat's ass. I wish they came in shorter lengths (cable neat freak), but the price can't be beat. You won't be disappointed.
For Christmas, my wife bought me a simple home theater system. It's not a four-figure home theater system but it's definitely an improvement over the standard TV speakers. While I was setting it up, I noticed that it supported several inputs/outputs, including optical audio, standard audio out via mini jack, HDMI, etc. Since I never owned a home theater system, I never owned an optical audio cable. When I tried to connect the system to all my components, I noticed that there was a "hum" that came out the speakers when nothing was playing. I narrowed it down to the dang mini jack cable (despite being a Monster cable) that connected to my home theater system. I removed that and the hum disappeared.
That's when I decided to buy the Amazon digital optical cable because I knew it would get rid of the hum interference. I 100% knew it would fix the situation because I deal with optical cabling on a daily basis in my job (Network Engineer). The benefits of optical cabling is that it's purely digital and that there is no "metal" that makes it more subject to interference.Read more ›
The cable is your basic black color and it looks as nice as a cable can look. The cable is flexible and bendy just like a cable should be. It is long. The connection fits snugly from my Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K 7-Channel A/V Receiver (Black) to my ancient Philips DirecTV DVR With 40GB TIVO.
It comes in a nice cardboard box that is so simple to open. You can then toss the packaging into your recycle bin for recycling.
Anyway, plugged this baby in (after taking off the little rubber end protectors because I forgot to despite reading the reviews that told me you had to do so) and the sound is great. I've never used optical cords before, but now I'm a believer.
You can't beat it for the price and value.

Works and sounds awesome. But if the port is not all the way in you will hear static. I don't know if this comes from my tv having a shallow port or the cable having a short... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
