Product Description

The clearest and cleanest possible signal is transferred through the 280 individual stands of glass. Unlike most consumer grade optical cable that use plastic fiber optics, this cable uses real glass fiber optics and mirror polished ends for the highest possible quality data transmission. Glass fiber optic transmission allows amazing clarity reproduction, ultra spatial effects and dynamic impact. It's ideal for use with DVD, DVD Audio, SACD, CD, D-VHS, game console, Dolby Digital and DTS professional audio applications. Sophisticated mirror polishing techniques are employed to make the clearest end possible resulting in less error and maximum signal transfer. 24K gold plated collet provides rigidity and maintains cable fiber placement. Precision-machined connector housing corrects for common tolerance errors within optical jacks. 6 mm, soft-flexible PVC jacket protects the delicate fiber core. Features: Precision molded plug and durable 24k gold plated plug ends Constructed from 280 individual strands of glass for maximum flexibility Bend radius is only 50 mm (about 2 inches) This cables ensures the least signal loss and least jitter possible Allows highest resolution digital audio transmission Widest bandwidth transmission and frequency response Tuned spectral attenuation for optimum signal admittance and low loss Precision polished TOSLINK core end for wider bandwidth with lower insertion loss Multi-shielding protection from damage and interference Glass Toslink Cables are new, in factory sealed poly bag

Went to my local Circuit City and purchased a Monster Cable Fiber Optic cable which was the very first one I had ever purchased. I have purchased Monster Cable products in the past, mainly their speaker wire and traditional analog audio cable.

This purchase however, did not sit right with me. I ended up paying $56 plus tax for the FO cable which did it's job, but thought I was crazy for paying so much for an audio cable that I connected to my PC

I then went on Amazon and shopped for a cable. I felt a little overwhelmed since there was A LOT to choose from. Also, being new to the whole Fiber Optic experience, I decided to do a little research.

The one thing that makes a difference when purchasing a FO cable is how the "light" will travel from point A to point B. Monster Cable sells their cable as DFO rated which to me, is misleading and a marketing ploy/scheme..

When buying FO cable, two things are important, one is that it has TOSLINK which basically means that it has a sturdy connection that "snaps" into place, the other is that it is made of "glass", which carries the audio signal through glass for little to no interference and optimal sound reproduction.

This cable also has gold plated ends which is another plus!

So, let's compare here...

This $20 cable has is made of glass optical fiber, the $60 Monster cable is not.
This cable has gold plated ends, MC... not so much
This cable is thicker, heavier, and is better made than the MC
This cable is approx $40 cheaper

Sound wise, there is a difference between the MC and this one..

First let me tell everybody that this is my experience and does not invalidate others experience where no issue was found.

I ordered this cable with really high expectations due to the fact that all other reviews to this day are 5 stars, the price was right so it was worth trying, no complaints in regards of delivery time. It came in a no-frills bag (we don't listen to it so I am OK with it) and connected the optical out of my Media Server (ESI Juli@ xte handles it) to the TOSLINK input of my Cambridge Audio 840C that accepts signals up to 24/192K.

To make a long story short this cable can't not pass signals higher than 24/96K. Why can I say this and not blame it on the DA? because if I use the other two optical cables I have handy they do transmit the signal and the DA shows it in its panel the correct signal bit depth and rate, with the newly purchased cable it simply reads UNLOCKED. I tried different files with no luck, the DA always showed UNLOCKED and got no sound out of it.

On a good note signals equal or under 24/96K played with no issue, if it was really better or worse that non-glass cables I really can say because all my attention was on the fact that my highest resolution files did not play but at the very least I can say that it was not worse that the cables I was trying to replace if using the resolutions it did support.

Why I didn't keep it? If I have to down-convert all my high resolution files to play them I defeat the purpose of having them. If you think that it makes no difference, that we cannot hear the difference or that brand A is better than brand B, that is not really my point, I am simply stating that it does not pass signals higher than 24/96k and if that is acceptable for you go ahead and purchase it.

OK, the million dollar question - Does real glass optical fibre work better than the the cheaper plastic fibre? Answer - it depends. To be able to actually hear the difference your audio system needs to consist of components that are all near the top of their game. NO, not the "stupid" expensive rich people only gear, but solid performers like Pioneer Elite, Sony ES, KEF, NHT, B&K, Parasound, etc... If your system has bass and treble knobs there is something wrong in the chain and you need to upgrade. I gave up on S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format) optical cables years ago because the sound stage information was lost in the translation. A coaxial RCA S/PDIF built with Canare cable presented a clear sound stage - you could close your eyes and hear the position of the instruments and the position did not wander the way they do with cheap plastic optical cables. So what about the glass? The glass gives you the same well defined solid sound stage and as a bonus the high frequency’s are crystal clear and easy to listen to over time. The cables are good enough that I've replaced all my Canare coax with glass Toslink and the Canare coax cables now hang in my spare cable rack. Glass is good...

I've always known, and personally experienced many times that glass toslinks were significantly better than the cheaper varieties, and this one is no exception.

I took a chance on this cable because of the positive reviews, as I normally purchase higher priced audiophile type cables. I directly compared this cable to a pricy wireworld toslink that cost approximately ten times more a few years ago. This cable did not disappoint and the overall presentation was very similar. The cable had good weight, cohesion and focus and was very intelligible on voice. The only place it fell short of the wireworld was in the lower treble area where it lacked some subtle detail.... but not sufficient to realize something was missing if you didn't know it wasn't there.

Reasonable build quality, but nowhere near as heavy or bulky as the wireworld.... but audiophiles like to pay more for that perceived stuff that often doesn't make a difference.... LOL....

So.... for the cost and performance in non-critical applications (I only use it between my TV and hifi for movies), this cable is a no-brainer and fantastic value IMHO.
