Product Details

Premium Optical Cable with Toslink Connectors 50 ft.
Fiber optic cables harness the speed and data density that only light can deliver. Another feature of using light to deliver S/PDIF information between audio components is that noise is completely eliminated. It is not possible for EMI or RFI to enter into or alter the audio signal. That is not to say that all optical audio cables are perfect. Using a very thin fiber optic cable can lead to kinks in the line that disrupt signal transmission. Inferior Toslink connectors can damage equipment permanently—or justnot fit your audio components sockets at all! Hazy, unpolished fiber tips create dropped data bits that can create intermittent operation. This premium Toslink fiber optic digital audio cable features a heavy 8 mm jacket that prevents cable kinking and a connector that is guaranteed to fit correctly into any piece of audio equipment with a Toslink socket, such as home theater receivers, DAT recorders, DVD players, Sony Playstations (2 and 3), and Microsoft Xbox (original and Xbox 360). Precision polished fiber tips (with included tip protectors) maximize signal transfer without loss. Note: Prior to installation, remove plastic tip protectors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passes ADAT FormatI was skeptical about trying this, as there was no specific professional use mentioned in the other reviews. This product passes 8 channels of ADAT optical from a Presonus AD to an 01V (card in) with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FIBER IS FIBERAll fiber optic cable can run long distances without signal trouble. The problem is in the finished ends. In the beginning all fiber was glass and you had to be extremely careful not to create too small of a coil or it would crack and become useless. The ends were hand polished with sand paper laid flat and you made a figure 8 motion as you ground them. the better the polish job the higher level of signal. You could leave a 500' roll and spool off a few feet at each end, with little signal loss, and never waist temporary cable be having to cut and polish it. Today they are plastic and not as clear as glass. The ends are only cut straight and glued to fitting, of course you will have signal loss. All in all it appears the better manufactures use clearer plastic fiber therefore a stronger signal. This is one of thous companies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works...The feel of this cable in your hands is absolutely terrible and you have to make sure not to give yourself a friction burn when rolling it up quickly. It is very thick for any audio cable, especially an optical one (optical needs no shielding so I can't see any reason for the thickness). The one up side is that it does not hold it's shape at all after being coiled tightly for a long period of time, though then again I don't think any optical cables tend to hold their shape.Overall it is a good price for a cable that does what it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cable you'll ever buy...EVER!!I was not expecting much from this cable because it was so cheap in price, but I was shocked to see the quality of this cable. This cable not only has a metal mesh sleeve over the entire length of the cord, it also has metal end connectors. I was also worried about the signal strength due to the cable being 50' long, but the signal is crystal clear! If I were you this is the only cable I would buy. By the way, don't waste your time and try to find a better deal, this is the best price your going to find PERIOD, trust me I spent a lot of time looking for the right price.
