S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Cable, 35ft
Experience superb sonic clarity and accurate musical reproduction with this 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 cable features a full-sized Toslink connector on each end, with molded connector heads and strain-relief boots.
- Full-sized male Digital Optical Audio (Toslink) connectors at each end
- 5.0mm outside diameter
- Molded strain relief connectors reduce strain where the cable and connectors meet
- Gold plated ferrule resists corrosion and provides maximum protection for the connector tip
- Precision polished fiber tips for maximum signal transfer
- Plastic tip protectors attached to each end to protect the optical cable when not in use

Regarding the length, if you're wondering whether the signal will be degraded over such a distance: don't. I, too, was very skeptical about this cable working, between my several years-old motherboard and finicky Sony receiver. Without a hitch, all that was necessary was removing the old cable and plugging in the new one. The sound quality is as excellent as with a much more-expensive six-foot cable, even with what I would *assume* to be high-bandwidth audio (Dolby Digital/DTS multi-channel movies). Now I can watch movies, use XBMC, YouTube, DVDs, etc., on my TV, with excellent sound, yet without the PC in sight.
Unbelievably, this cable arrived via USPS in only two days, and on a Saturday no less! All the way from California to Michigan in that amount of time is simply amazing. I'm not sure who to give the credit, but well done, both Monoprice and the USPS!
