    S/PDIF Digital Optical Audio Cable, Toslink to Mini Toslink, 3ft

    Experience superb sonic clarity and accurate musical reproduction with this S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Cable from Monoprice!

    The Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format provides for a Digital Optical Audio signal, commonly referred to as Toslink. Toslink allows for the distribution of uncompressed 2-channel PCM audio or compressed multichannel audio, such as DTS® or Dolby® 5.1 or 7.1. Being an optical signal, Toslink is immune to problems that can plague electrical signals, such as crosstalk, magnetic interference, or radio frequency interference.

    Many laptop and small computers, including the Apple MacBook® and Mac® mini, feature a combination 3.5mm TRS stereo audio and S/PDIF Digital Optical Audio output port. This port can accept a standard 3.5mm headphone plug or a Mini Toslink plug.

    This cable features a 3.5mm Mini Toslink connector on one end and a full-sized Toslink connector on the other end, with molded connector heads and strain-relief boots.


    • Full-sized male Digital Optical Audio (Toslink) connector on one end
    • 3.5mm male Mini Toslink connector on one end
    • 5.0 mm outside diameter
    • Molded strain-relief bootss reduce strain where the cable and connectors meet
    • Gold plated ferrule resists corrosion and provides maximum protection for the connector tip
    • Precision polished fiber tips for maximum signal transfer
    • Plastic tip protectors attached to each end to protect the optical cable when not in use

    If you want to get digital audio from your Mac and send it to your home theater receiver this cable is a great solution. No need to buy a connection kit at nearly 20x the price of this single cable. This is a great deal!

    great monoprice quality as always
    Excellent link from my Apple Airport Express to my DAC sitting right next to it (hence the 3ft length.) Works perfectly, no problems, and a great price.

    Mini plug connets directly to Apple Airport Express

    CONS: None!

    Excellent quality and value
    Wanted to take advantage of built in optical on my iMac especially when editing movies or audio, this is the perfect bridge to the USB powered micro DAC, then that connects to a headphone amp. The quality is astoundingly better, and makes work on the project faster and much more enjoyable. Also since the amp has multiple headphone outs I can easily share a work in progress and get input. win win win win.

    PROS: very durable and shorter length useful for desktop application

    CONS: none
