Product Description

SonicWave glass fiber optical cables are a must-have for any audio purists. Constructed from 280 individual strands of 0.053mm glass for maximum flexibility the bend radius is an amazing 70mm. High-purity optical grade glass will not haze or discolor over time like plastic will. Sophisticated mirror-polishing techniques are employed to make the clearest end possible and resulting in less error and maximum signal transfer. 24K gold plated collet provides rigidity and maintains cable fiber placement. 8mm soft-flexible PVC jacket protects the delicate fiber core. Toslink cables eliminate EMI and RFI interference mon to standard Audio/Video cables.Primary InformationCable Type :  Digital audio cable (optical) Left Connector Type :  TOS Link Left Connector Gender :  Male Right Connector Type :  TOS Link Right Connector Gender :  Male Dimensions&MiscellaneousLength :  3.281 feet Color :  Gray Service&SupportService & Support Type :  Limited Lifetime Manufacturer Warranty UNSPSC CodeUNSPSC Code :  26121620

If you are still using a plastic Toslink cable, it's time to invest $50 and try this glass Toslink cable. Audiophiles have long frowned upon the merits of this medium of digital datastream transfer and always placing Toslink at the bottom of the list. In some ways, the Glass Toslink outperforms lesser S/PDIF cables that sell for much higher prices although my preference is still for Glass AT&T or AES/EBU if your equipment can support such. For the asking price, this is a serious consideration to be explored with surprisingly positive results.

First let me say I'm not using this in some sort of high-end $10K+ system. I've had a FIOS receiver for the past 2.5 years connected by component video and TOS cable. Well recently the audio starting cutting out and just jiggling the TOS cable on the receiver end would bring it back. This old TOS cable was some no-name cheap plastic fiberoptic design.

Enter Cables to Go. I researched the many TOS cables out there and didn't want to spend $100-$500 for some high end cable that wouldn't benefit me more than this $25 cable would. What is important to note is the glass/quartz multi-stranded fiberoptic construction as opposed to a single strand plastic fiber. I have no way to prove this is what happened, but what I believe started my audio failing was the plastic fiber clouding up over the past couple of years. It may have been constructed with some type of plastic that becomes opaque after years of being exposed to the LED of the TOS connector. The optical signal was thus marginal at the amplifier end causing it to cut out when the light amplitude starting falling. Bottomline is, glass shouldn't have any of these deterioration issues over time.

Now it stands to reason most of these A/V cable companies don't make the actual cable. You'd need make miles and miles of cable to make it worthwhile to do that so more than likely Cables to Go buys their shielded and fiberoptic cable from some OEM. If you search around, you'll come to find that 280 strands of fiberoptic cable can be had from a few other manufacturers so that goes to show it is some commonly produced OEM cable and Cables to Go buys it in bulk and terminates it with their own TOS connectors.

That being said, the connectors are of a very nice metal construction and snap solidly into the TOS connection.

Over the years since they were introduced, I have bought Toslink cables ranging in price from $10 to $125, from everybody from Radioshack to Monster, including their premium lines. The construction -- especially of the connectors is very find, and they have a more "positive" connection than most others I have used. The cable is nice and flexible and appears well-shielded in a fairly soft rubbery exterior. I would have preferred Cablestogo use some of their woven nylon to sheath the cable in, because those are so tough -- especially when you put tension on the cables when you are trying to work on the back of your equipment. Sound qualify seems excellent -- as good as the HDMI it replaced for audio.

Thought this to be extinct. Completely uncoloured transmission of signal, as a bonus it will break electrical contact between your poorly regulated power in a typical computer and the delicate sensibilities of your analogue stages of your playback system.
Highly recommended , audibly superior to my similarly priced plastic toslinks.

I had several Toslink cables (Monoprice, Amphenol,...) but I liked the Sonicwave Glass Toslink cable. It sounded better than the others. I connected that cable from my Arcam CDP to my B&K Reference 30 pre-amp. Recommended!

This real glass fiber cable has a very clear and pure sound, better than plastic fiber or metallic coaxial cables. Excellent metallic connectors.

Received it and plug it into my Audioengine D1 and other end into my MAC.
Sound keep dropping till I had to firmly hold the cable end into the Audioengine DAC.
Turns out the Sonicwave cable with the protruding end is shorter as compared to the plastic core cable protruding end that I had intended to replace.
