Mediabridge Toslink Optical Cable is not sized properly
on December 1, 2011
I purchased a few Mediabridge Toslink Optical Digital Cables. They arrived quickly , adequately packaged with no damage. The problem that I found was that every cable was unacceptably loose in every device that I inserted them into. Sound would "sputter" as the cable was moved. The cables were so loose that they could fall out of the optical socket. Some of the devices taht I tried were made by Onkyo, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, and a Shuttle computer optical out. I called the manufacturer, Mediabridge, and they politely told me that there is no standard for the point of insertion of the cable and to return them. I can not believe that there is no standard for the size of the opening and the plug. If this were true, then there would be no reason to produce devices that employ them and no reason for manufacturers to produce them. It costs too much to return them so I will probably throw them away. I purchased other brands of optical cables and they fit snugly in all of my devices.
