Digital Optical Selector Switch
Digital Optical Selector Switch is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and a money saver!I have an older receiver with no HDMI in/outs and only two optical inputs. Instead of upgrading to a newer receiver I thought I'd try this option first. Product works just as it should and is very easy to hook up. With three inputs I have room for one more audio source should the need arise. Don't forget to get an extra optical cable to hook it up to the receiver. Great product, recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective, and great for the priceJust make sure to push in the tip of the turning, central indicator dial in order to disengage spring loaded locking mechanism before turning to select input! There are no instructions and I happened upon the spring button by accident. Works perfectly and easily, and it's just what I needed/wanted for the price. Now I can easily (though manually - this is not an electronic remotely operable device) switch optical audio between Xbox, PS3 and Blu-ray. Works great with PE's house toslink cables, also perfect for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase!I wasn't even sure that there was a part that would spit an optical signal. I found one on Amazon and when it arrived, it did not work. I called Parts Experss and asked for some technical help. They said it probably was broken to begin with.I ordered a similar one from them, and it works perfectly. No more having to crawl behind an entertainment center to switch cords. I am 74 and that hurts!The technical support was great and they gave my little order all the importance of a thousand dollar one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works perfectlyworks perfectly for switching between my xbox 360, bluray player and HDDVR. no loss of sound quality and very easy to use.probably the only bad thing i can think of is the shape, it could stand to be a bit more streamlined. but for the price, its definitely a great buy if you have multiple devices and only one optical input.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great but?it works fine,but it should have had a small page of instructions.I mean if it wasn't that I played around with it,I would had never known that there was a button you press in and release to go from slot to slot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does What It Says!!Works great! Saved me from having to replace my receiver for one with second optical input. I have a xbox-360 and a blu-ray player both needed the same type input, this fit my needs perfectly.
