    3x1 S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Bi-Directional Manual Switch

    This manual S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Switch is a bi-directional device, allowing you to switch either three inputs into a single output or a single input into three outputs. It provides full optical clarity and therefore will not degrade or attenuate the optical signal in any way.

    Pros: Performance, price

    Cons: Poor tactile feel

    It worked fine out of the box, but didn't feel right. So a few screws and a light lube, it feels much better. The release button on the top of the lever, would be more ergonomic if you were squeezing it from the sides. Once released from its locked position and moved just a little bit, it will snap back when it is at its next position. A great solution to my infrequent optical sound switching needs.

    Make no mistake, it's cheap

    Pros: - The simplest thing that could possibly work
    - Doesn't require power, since it's purely mechanical
    - Price point is low enough that if it breaks I won't be sad

    Cons: - Build quality is exactly what you'd expect in a $6 device
    - Takes close attention to get the lever into position
    - Colour scheme is ugly as sin
    - Will be lucky to survive 100-200 actuations before the mechanism jams up or fails entirely

    This thing is literally a couple of mirrors and lenses, which as luck would have it, is just enough to get the job done. No fancy remote controls here. It does exactly what I need it to do for now.

    Getting the lever into position requires a lot of fiddling so much so that my husband would rather just use the TV speakers two times out of three (the philistine).

    I would 100% NOT recommend this device as a permanent solution. I'm only planning to use it for the next year or so, until I get a modern receiver.

    Switch works well . . . for a while.

    Cons: Doesn't last, even with moderate use. Not very durable.

    Worked fine until a few weeks after the warrant expired!

    Pros: Share one connection and split it into 3

    Cons: Cheaply built

    I bought this a couple years ago but never got around to reviewing it. I just ordered something from monoprice so I decided to stop by and give a little review. This item only worked for maybe the first 2 or 3 days and I was happy because I was splitting one connection into 3 different devices but then it just stopped working for no apparent reason. Lots of reviews on here said theirs never worked so I should have listened an not bought the item. Sine the review is a few years from the purchase date, I really hope they have improved the quality of it.

    This worked well for a few hours, but after switching inputs about 10 times it no longer functions.

    by Monoprice Administrator

    I truly apologize that this Toslink switch is no longer functioning. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for replacement if still within warranty. We cover this unit with a one year warranty and obtaining the replacement would be of no additional cost to you. If you wish to proceed, please provide the order number and I can get that going right away. Truly sorry again for any inconvenience and I hope this helps.
