Works great, quality sound.

I'd also recommend that you'd buy MORE than one, as they're not the hardest things to lose.

Works perfectly to convert a 3.5mm optical jack into a standard digital optical jack.

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.

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.

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.

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!

got the adapter and it would not work. I kept looking and trying to figure out why and low and behold there was something deep inside it that was in the way of the light. It looked like a piece of the plastic or something. must not have been totally shaved off or something. got a pen and was able to get rid of the blockage. works great now.

used on an apple airport express for streaming itunes

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.

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.

If this is what you need, then it's the perfect solution. I thought it might be helpful to provide some details of what my need was and how these little items fulfilled it. I searched reviews looking for someone that tried what I was looking to do with these, but didn't see any so maybe this will help someone in the same boat I was in.

I purchased and installed an Apple AirPort Express for the sole purpose of streaming iTunes to my A\V Receiver. I am replacing a clunky HTPC that has proven just to difficult for my family to operate. While I'm not a fan of iTunes, there's just no (easy) way around it when everyone in your house owns some flavor of iPod. Anywho, the goal was to go digital from the AirPort to the A\V Receiver. Mistakenly, I purchased a Digital Coax cable to use with the product, only discovering later that (apparently) the AirPort supports only Digital Optical. I already had the Digital Optical cable with Toslink connectors on both ends. Obviously, the AirPort requires a Mini connection. I hated to shell out the $20-$30 for a Toslink-to-Mini cable, so I searched and found these converters. I bought four of them (in an attempt to help justify the shipping to myself). I was concerned about the proper fit on the Mini connection after reading some the reviews, but decided to take a chance. I'm happy to report that they fit perfectly on both ends and everything is working wonderfully. They did arrive with a protective cover over the Mini Optical plug. They were packaged in a bubble wrap envelope, but nothing appeared to be damaged.

If this is what you are looking to do and you already have a cable then I think this product will fit your needs perfectly.
