S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Splitter
This adapter splits a single S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio signal into two outputs. It allows you to connect a single optical audio source, such as the output of a gaming console or Blu-ray™ player, to two audio devices, such as a television and an AV receiver.
Note that this is a splitter, which repeats the same signal to two outputs. It cannot be used to combine or switch between two inputs. If you need to switch two or three digital optical audio sources into a single output device, consider the 3x1 S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Bi-Directional Manual Switch (PID 2946).

READ THE NOTE before you use it
6' optical from the PS to the splitter, a 6' optical to my receiver, and a 25' optical through my wall into another receiver in the basement... works great!
PROS: Needed a optical splitter for my Onkyo integrated amp, and the sound bar, so I don't have to plug unplug between the use of the units.
The splitter works fine. Can't evaluate the sound quality between the two cord effectively cause of a high freq hearing loss from the railroad, and logging helicopters.
Unit works just fine for my purposes.
CONS: I could get to work right.
After reading several of the negative reviews, it seems that many of them are from people who attempted to use the device for something other than its intended purpose i.e. attempting to use it as a combiner rather than a splitter despite the fact that the product description clearly states that it will not do that. It's a bit unfair to hold a product at fault when one does not use it properly.
PROS: Simple to install. It just works!!
