Premium S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Cable, 15ft
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
Awhile ago I was ordering from Monoprice.com and thought it would be interesting to see what the quality of their Toslink cables was like just out of curiosity. So I bought the 'Fancy' version but had no expectations. Finally tonight I actually compared the 12' $7 'Fancy' Monoprice cable with the 6.5' $70 cable from the high-end audio store and and the sound quality of this $7 heavily-insulated Monotype cable is at least 40% better than the uninsulated Toslink that cost 10 times more and is half the size. Monoprice never fails to favorably surprise me but this exceeds everything and I highly recommend this 'Fancy' Toslink' cable.
PROS: High quality insulated optical cable
High quality connectors
Excellent sound quality
PROS: Great quality at great price
PROS: An excellent product at a very good price. If you are wondering how much a digital audio toslink connection can improve your sound quality based on my experience it has been quite an improvement. PLUS, I saved significant money by buying from Monoprice instead of a retail store.
CONS: The only improvement I can see, one that would make this product a 10, is a more secure connection. The plug in seems a little iffy in terms of staying connected if bumped.
PROS: Great product and amazing price
PROS: Fast delivery and product works great~
PROS: fast delivery
best cable by far
CONS: ended up not needing it..lol
Everything went well with install and usage of this cable.
