This product does exactly what I needed it to do. In my Macbook Pro it efficiently (with no sound distortion) transfers the laptops optical signal through my regular toslink cable into my surround sound receiver.

Works great, quality sound.

If you have the Audigy 2 ZS Notebook sound card, you need this for optical audio, one for input and one for output. You can't find this anywhere else, I'm serious. Bestbuy and Radioshack dont have them. This took me a while to figure out.

I use this for my Mac Mini with the digital out. Works great hooked up to a stereo receiver with awesome, clear sound. The only downside to using on a Mac, it disables the internal sound volume controls when a digital out adapter/cable is plugged in. You'll have to control the volume from the receiver all the time. Not a huge problem.

I needed this item to connect my X-Fi Sound Blaster card to our 7.1 surround sound system. The adapter has good fit with the cable and input device. Quality is excellent and shipping for this particular seller was quick. BTW, you can't get this at Fry's, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Circuit City, or any other national retailers.

Apart from the fact that it took 2 weeks to receive the weightless miniature adapter (maybe it was the Hurricane), I am extremely pleased with this item.

For $2, I get surround sound from my S/PDIF output, which is converted into a Toslink cable. This allows me to use my Astro A40 mixamp with Dolby Digital sound through my laptop's S/PDIF-out, or output true surround sound from my laptop to any 5.1 system, TV, or any optical-in for that matter. Just don't forget the optical cable. :)

That's about it. Don't waste $10-15 on other solutions. This is what you need to turn any regular S/PDIF-out (or combo 3.5mm slot) into a digital optical output at lossless quality.

Just make sure you need a S/PDIF output converted to an optical cable. I don't want anyone to order the incorrect/backwards adapter and waste 2 weeks for nothing (like that one guy who did).

PS. If you don't have S/PDIF, I don't believe you can achieve an optical connection in a regular 3.5mm slot using this adapter. While this is a "3.5mm" mini adapter, the regular 3.5mm/speaker slot on a given computer does NOT output Toslink red light, so there is nothing to adapt/convert to begin with. So technically speaking, this is a S/PDIF(male) to Toslink(female) adapter. If you might not have S/PDIF, or just aren't sure, simply look for a 3.5mm-sized output glowing an ominous red light somewhere on your computer. That means you are ready to convert S/PDIF red light to Toslink red light using this adapter.

Hoped this helped somewhat!

Used to connect the "mini spdif" plug on my HP Pavillion dv 6400 to the optical Super CD toslink [...] input on my Sony STP-k9900p home theatre system (Dolby 5.1). Mini refers to the speaker jack size (like the green speaker plug for any PC). SPDIF refers to the protocol used over the optical connection. Using Amazon's select similar or related search (or whatever it's called) I also bought two 12 foot cables (cables4less) and a toslink to toslink cable connector. 3 separate suppliers, one purchase from Amazon - how neat. I ended up with a 24 foot connection from laptop to home theatre system that reaches every seat in the living room. AND IT WORKS and SOUNDS GREAT. You should hear how good even Pandora.com sounds! I don't mind paying $5-$6 for parts and $20+ for S&H for something I can't buy locally. I got what I wanted. Also, at many places you'll pay $30+ for just one 12 foot cable. All three packages were shipped promptly and arrived within 1 week. (Good job Amazon). The jack, connector and cablesare all top quality. Cable ends have protective caps attached to the ends to keep the optical end clean. The cap for the laptop end reaches to cover the mini spdif plug when it is not in the laptop.

These adapters work with new Apple computers that have combination optical/Analog jacks, (My new Mac Pro for example) Powermacs and MacPro towers have seperate analog and toslink, but IIRC everything else in the Apple lineup uses combo minijacks.

Certain other equipment uses the same optical/analog minijacks, like MiniDisc players

I'm going to keep this simple. With one of these adapters, a toslink cable and a Optical cable switchbox (like 15.00, if that) I can hook up my MacBook to surround sound with ease. Every laptop is different although the late model Mac's have a built in mini-optical out in the headphone jacks so it is literally plug and play. Pair this with the Mini-DVI to HDMI cable and you can hook up your laptop to your television and still have full surround sound. For a 40.00 investment (w/ shipping) , you are literally enhancing your computing experience.
