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: 3 outputs
CONS: A little big
kinda hard to switch with one hand
PROS: The size can be a little bit smaller
CONS: Easy to install and use
PROS: Switching back and forth without constant unplugging from one source and plugging in another saves from ruining cables
CONS: No cons
Thanks Monoprice you have a new customer and i will tell others, ohh and fast shipping too
Here are the things you need to know about this device:
1) It's larger than expected. It measures roughly 6"X4" sq. in. (size of an adult palm).
2) The IN/OUT optical port is rather loose on my switch. I fabricated a mount to screw the switch to the wall, and had this port facing up. I also bought a separate 1.5ft premium optical cable here also.
3) The switch has a mechanism you have to push before you can turn the switch. (Think of it as one of those child-proof caps they put on medicine bottles.) At first I thought mine was jammed.
4) There is no permanent light indicator. The orange paper light is a dummy, vestigal part. You can see a glimpse of a red light when your device is on, but nothing permanent.
Overall, a very good product that I'd highly receommend.
