Premium S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Cable, 6ft
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.

Questions and Answers
See above for use with Xbox 360.
CONS: Will no fit in the back of my Xbox 360. The new glossy black slim 360's now have an optical cable output in the back, but you need a round connector! Be warned! Buy the other optical cable that has the round connector if you are going to use for your 360! I blame MS for this if you take a look at the back, design fail at its finest.
Other than that, the cable is of superb quality and value. Thanks again Monoprice!!
PROS: - Very Durable
- Visually Beautiful
- Excellent Sound Quality
CONS: - Connectors can potentially be too big depending on sound system. But just fine for me.
The only warning I have is that these will NOT fit the XBOX 360. The toslink plug is surrounded by a round plastic entry hole that prevents the square plug from fitting. If you are looking for a cable for the XBOX 360, do NOT buy this one.
Not likely to kink or crush it
CONS: does not fit XBOX 360
PROS: Price, selection.
PROS: High Quality
