Premium S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Cable, 18 inches

Experience superb sonic clarity and accurate musical reproduction with this Premium 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.

This premium cable features a full-sized Toslink connector on each end, with metal connector heads and a metal mesh jacket. The metal jacket helps protect the cable from nicks, cuts, and kinks, which could cause damage to the internal optical fiber.


  • Full-sized male Digital Optical Audio (Toslink) connectors at each end
  • Heavy duty premium, square metal connector heads
  • Mesh metal jacket protects cable from nicks, cuts, and kinks
  • 8.0mm outside diameter
  • Gold plated ferrule resists corrosion and provides maximum protection for the connector tip
  • Precision polished fiber tips for maximum signal transfer

Important! Because of the shape of the connector heads, this cable will not fit the Xbox 360 S "Slim" models, which are the smaller form-factor models released after June 14, 2010. For the Xbox 360 "Slim", please use one of our standard Toslink cables with molded connectors instead.

Toslink Digital Fibre Optic cable

Pros: good cable. Quality built construction. End is a bit big and squared. Great performance. Great digital sound transfer . Cable will stand up to hot air temperatures in cabinet. Long lasting. Recommend it. It has life time warranty, so you can't go wrong with purchase.

Cons: Bit to big on the ends. Braided wrapping gets a bit dirty.

Highest Quality Get 'Em

Pros: Very high quality. Well built metal connectors, flexible and even little retention straps for those tiny protective covers for the optical ends, so they're always there if you need them. (not shown in picture)

Cons: None

Perfect construction and length, with just a little extra play between two/three stacked components. These are the ones you want!

Love Monoprice, but this one is a dud

  • Jacob Trunzo,

Pros: Sturdy build, looks very solid

Cons: connector fits at an angle, does not keep a constant stream

Love Monoprice, but this one was a dud. I was using it to connect a focus rite Sapphire Pro 40 and Octopre, unfortunately from the first time I plugged it in, it would not work and still wouldnt after an hour of troubleshooting. I had to actually lift it up and hold it in place to make it lock the two devices.

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 3396. Unfortunately, it appears as though you may have received a defective cable. If you would like, I can help setup an RMA for a replacement. We offer a lifetime warranty for our cables and obtaining a replacement would be of no additional cost. If you wanted to proceed with the RMA, please let me know and I can get that started right away. Apologies again for any inconvenience and hope this helps!
