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).

Compatibility

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.

Thank you for being so fast.

So much cheaper than the astronomical costs of the same type of cable that is sold at Best Buy and stores of the like.

Connects my Vizio soundbar to my Samsung TV and sounds great.

If it doesn't snap you probably forgot to take the little rubber protectors off the end of the cable... like I did for about a minute. Once removed it snaps in perfectly.

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??

1. Open the box.
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.

My goal in life is to never buy overpriced cables. I figure that it is a cable and how could it break. After all it just sits there collecting dust. It's a digital signal going through glass/plastic fiber, there will be no difference compared to the $450 dollar AudioQuest class 5 optical cable - TosLink plugs 1m (3.28'). If you bought this $450 cable, I cry for you.

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.

Size Name: 6 Feet/1.8 Meters Verified Purchase
Having owned an HDTV for quite a while now, I've always used the TV speakers because I've never owned a home theater system although all my friends and family have a home theater system. I've always relied on non-digital cabling to cable up my devices to the TV (with the exception of my devices that have HDMI ports). Anyone who is familiar with cabling knows that the majority of it are metal-based. Being metal means that it's subject to potential interference and with interference comes those higher dollar cables that include various methods to remove interference whether via shielding in the jacket or ferrite toroids. Not sure what that is? Just Google it.

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.

Size Name: 6 Feet/1.8 Meters Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These cables are pretty awesome.

Initial setup (who cares): The cable came in an easy to open cardboard box. The plastic tips needed to be removed but that hardly was an issue given I have opposable thumbs.

Sound quality: The quality of the sound was on par with some of the more expensive cables I've had previously. I didn't notice any interference and it sounded fairly clear.

In general there isn't too much to say about this product; either it works or it doesn't work. It works and I recommend it.

Size Name: 6 Feet/1.8 Meters Verified Purchase
Just purchased a 55" TV but it has limited outputs. My surround sound receiver has hundreds of inputs/outputs but none of the cords I owned allowed me to connect the sound from my television to the receiver. I like to hook the sound directly from the TV rather than from all my separate components so that I have only one connection and I never have to switch input channels. If it plays on the TV, it plays on surround sound.

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.
