Professional quality performance and appearance for all standard Optical audio requirements including Sky, Virgin TV, PS3, Xbox with home sound systems, when clear sound quality is your priority.
TOSLINK® or Optical Cable is a fiber optic connection system. Most commonly used with audio equipment (via a "digital optical" socket,) where it carries a digital audio stream from devices such as CD, DVD, Blu-Ray players and modern video game consoles, to an AV receiver such as surround sound system that can decode the stream of audio and output it through a set of loudspeakers.
Since TOSLINK uses fibre-optic cable, it is free from distortion caused by electrical or magnetic interference that an electrical cable would incur.
The result is an audio signal that is purer, as well as truer to the original recording.
Gold plating is used on the connectors for its anti-corrosive properties. This optical cable has on both sides a universal round Toslink plug. With these new plugs it does not matter how to plug the connector into the device, the round plug always fits. The normal Toslink plugs are half round, half square and only fits one way.
