    Would this work with a Samsung TV with optical audio out to a Bose mini II speaker that has a standard 3.8 mm AUX jack?
    Don R on Aug 31, 2018

    BUT -

    This is a digital optical cable to digital optical. You DO need this cable, but in addition you need to convert the digital to analog, which requires a digital to analog converter known as a DAC or D/A converter, with optical (or TOSLINK) input. The output of that device will likely be stereo RCA jacks, AND you'll need a cable to convert those plugs as shown below.

    So you need 3 things - this cable (Toslink to Toslink), a digital to analog converter, and a RCA to 3.5mm mini jack cable

    I have a JBL sound system currently connected to my iMac via the headphone jack. My TV has a Toslink input and I would to connect the JBL to that set. Currently the input to the computer is a 3.5 mini jack, the left and right channel are split to the speakers. 4 speakers and a subwoofer. Is this all I need to make this work?

    BEST ANSWER: You probably have figured this out by now, but it depends on the JBL. My guess is that the output in the JBL you are using is a standard analog headphone type jack and this would not work. The jack on the JBL has to be digital capable. I'm pretty sure you could connect the iMac to the TV using this...
    I have a JBL system that is currently connected to my iMac (4 speakers with subwoofer), connected to mac using 3.5" mini plug. Can use the toslink to mini toslink to connect to my TV?

    Works like a champ!
    I plugged this cable into the earphone/digital out jack on my old MacBookPro (2007 SantaRosa) and fed optical audio into my Denon AVR-S510BT HD A/V Receiver. Along with a DVI to HDMI cable and an input assignment of the optical input to follow the HDMI input, it works just fine. Just make sure to check the Sound Out System Preference on the Mac to make sure that the digital output is enabled the Mac should detect it and set it up for you.

    PROS: Simple to connect, inexpensive, optical digital audio quality...

    CONS: I waited so long to try it out.

    Toslink to mini M/M - works great!
    I have this cable setup between my apple macbook and my denon receiver. It works well. It comes with small caps to cover up the optical output and input which seem like a really good idea.
    Don't waste your money buying apple connecting cables. These ones are much cheaper and work just as well.

    PROS: Works between my Denon receiver and my apple macbook. You don't have to buy apple's expensive cable. This one works perfectly. Every time!

    CONS: none

    Not too certain about this...
    I bought this cable to connect a Chromecast Audio to my older Panasonic receiver. If the Toslink end is connected tightly to the back of the input on the receiver, no sound will play. If it is loose, it works (just shining into the plug.) I was able to make it work by plugging it in half way. Sounds good! But, if it ever gets bumped, it will not play. Can't figure out if it is a defect in the cable, or my receiver. My other Toslink cable connected to the DVD player (non-Monoprice cable) works fine. It's probably an issue with this cable. It was so cheap, and it's working, so I'm not too disappointed. Just be aware if you order this that your mileage might vary.

    PROS: Cheap!
    Sounds good!
    It has Tos and mini Tos like it says it does.

    CONS: Possible issue with the normal size Toslink connector. Cannot plug it into the input fully and hear any sound. Can only plug it in half-way to get it to work...

    Works well, I think
    I bought the wrong cable, my own fault. Didnt bother to return it figuring I might use it some day. Guess what I did and it works.

    Great Cable - The Monoprice Way
    Perfect cable for the purpose. I bought the cable to go from MacBook Pro to receiver. This is a great price for the cable, and great shipping. I have not had a complaint for any Monoprice item I've ever bought. Go Monoprice!

    PROS: Solid Cable, comes with covers for ends. Works perfectly going from my Macbook Pro (late 2007) to my Yamaha Receiver.

    CONS: None

    Works great with PCM, Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS audio.
    It would be nice if it came in a sturdier PREMIUM variety like the Toslink-Toslink cables on Monoprice.

    Great cable for plugging a laptop or audio card into a HT receiver.

    PROS: Thick, durable, and has protector caps on the sides.

    Excellent quality
    At these prices I was expecting something radio shack bargain bin-ish. I was very please to see the quality of this cable. it came with rubber caps for the ends that were looped around the cord itself so you couldn't lose them. Nice tough. Oh, and the cable works great.

    Replacing Cable that died
    I bought this same cable from Monoprice in 2006 and it just kicked the bucket after surviving 5 moves and multiple cat attacks. Awesome products and pricing.
