To reduce the cable clutter behind my stereo system, I chose the 1.5 ft model instead of the 3 ft model. The quality is good and it fits perfectly, but for one of the component, it is barely long enough, so I recommend going with the 3 ft version.
I have gone through three cables from WalMart and had given up thinking that I must have a bigger problem with my home entertainment unit. Tagged this on to an order for USB microcables (best price/quality from MonoPrice BTW) and now we have perfect sound! Made my wife Happy, Happy, Happy!
PROS: Short - perfect length Works - first and every time Inexpensive - compared to local suppliers this was very well priced
This cable was just what I needed and the price was so low I was a little worried if it would do the job but I was so wrong. From now on I will always consinder Monoprice for all my cable and connector needs.
What's there to say about this simple cable? All you can ask of it is to faithfully transmit an optical signal, and it does a fine job doing that between my DVD player and my A/V receiver. I like that it has the little plastic dust covers attached to the cable, even if I'll never use them now that the connections have been made!
I used this cable to connect a CD player to my receiver to replace the analog cables to achieve the best possible connection. The 1.5 ' length was perfect to help reduce cable clutter caused by the typical 3' cables.
PROS: The length and flexibility of this cable are perfect to help reduce cable clutter between components and receiver.
