Top customer reviews
its now 7 years later and i wanted to come back here and review this great item.
this cable has lasted me 7+ years during which i moved 3 times, so that speaks for the durability.
Before i bought this cable i bought cheaper ones and they all failed me, so i figured all Toslink Digital Optical cables are flimsy. Boy was I wrong.
i bought other cables before but this one is the total package. Other cables broke with in a few months,
Others stopped working, and some kept falling out of the slot. I am glad I finally found one that lasts.
Here are the Pros:
*more durable than other cables
*cost much less than Monster
*stays inside the slot
*has protective caps when not in use or when packing to move
*no quality/connection issues in 7+ years
This is the best cable you can get for this price. I bought others before and hands down this is the best value.
This cable connects the digital audio signal from my TV to my receiver and works as expected. Unlike the other cable I tried which didn't work. But that's digital for you, it either works, or it doesn't, there is no inbetween. So my advice is to buy the cheapest cable you can that is long enough for your application. For digital optical cables you don't need 'gold plated" or name brands with superior specifications, you just need one that works.
I purchased this cable because it was the type I needed and long enough. I give this cable 5 stars because it worked. But that's digital for you.
Why does build quality matter? TOSLINK, a glass fiber based optical cable standard, is nice, thin and robust in its transmission speeds--but it is susceptible to breaking by overtwisting or sharp impact. If you're comfortable using thin cheap optical cabling because your system is sealed and the cabling rarely accessed, go for it. But for many of us, your system isn't in 'lock down mode' and you may have an intermittent need to rewire or get back there in the "rats' nest" on occasion. For that reason, I recommend this product as a good compromise between cost/quality...it will take the knocks/use (within reason) without breaking the bank.
In short--you don't need the more expensive solutions by Monster or Belkin (which I own and respect). Just evaluate your scenario/circumstances and buy accordingly.
come shipped with protective caps on the ends that should be removed prior to installation.
So many reviews with, "bad cable wouldn't stay connected" or "Cheaply made and falls out" or
"it fit in one device but not the other"...Uh fitting in one device but not the other is a
function of the design of your device not the cable right? I mean think about it... if the cable fits
in one device but not the other , the cable hasn't changed...your device has...right??
I also liked the comment that the cable seemed "flimsy" or "delicate" - It's a thin filament fiber optic
cable, it's supposed to be highly flexible.
I had a feeling, after reading many cable reviews for many different manufacturers ranging from $3 to $20
online and seeing they were all saying pretty much the same thing, that this just might be the case so
I decided to take the couple dollar risk and just see if I was correct.
When the cable came, it was exactly the case. I pulled the little protective end off and it clicked right into place.
With the little protective end on the cable....it would not stay clicked in place...felt loose and like it was about
to fall out of the socket.
So everyone rest easy...
Do Not Purchase ANY cables from your local stores at $20 or $30+ dollars a piece.
These Digital Optical cables do come with little "nipples" or caps and yes the caps really do look as if they
are part of the cable assembly and might not come off, but these caps are easily removed with your fingers.
The cable is high quality, very flexible and easily routes through an entertainment center if needed.
I've purchased (3) of these now, and at under $3/each with free shipping, it was a great choice.
These really are excellent quality and allows my home theater to produce outstanding quality sound.
Fair warning for anyone trying to set up something like this. Be careful how high you turn up the computer end of the volume controls. If the computer sound output is too high, the sound will be rather distorted, regardless of how nice your system is. I'd turn it to no higher than 50% volume, recommend about 30%. Use the volume controls on your receiver to crank up your volume instead of doing it through the PC volume controls.
