As Good as MonsterFor most of us, the only reason to buy Monster would be because we have too much money and want to get rid of it. Now I can't speak for anybody who spent as much on their speakers as some people spend for a house....but for most of us that is not the case. I've got a nice mid-range system that I'm very happy with; I've got a harman/kardon AVR340 at the heart of my system, the speaker duties are handled by Infinities all around, big Studio Monitor 100's in front and smaller, quality infinities for front center and rear surround.I consider myself an audiophile. I discern no difference in sound between the Monster brand, and this fine cable, at a tenth of the price of the Monster. Despite it's price this cable is not junk, it is thick, has a quality feel to it, and it looks very nice with its' stylish gray braided covering. Bottom Line? This cable is a winner!5Connectors don't fit well, sometimes my reciever loses signalToslink cables don't need to be heavy gauge wires, or have any type of exotic metal coating because as long as the light can go from the source to receiver, it works. Cheap, no-name brand cables can usually perform this function. In my experience, however, all three of the cables I purchased had too loose of a fit to maintain a consistent signal from the source to receiver. The wires themselves were thinner than the cheap wire hangers you get from the dry cleaners, and they seem very fragile. It wouldn't really be an issue since they don't get handled too often, but the fact that you don't get a good fit on the heads makes it so you have to go back and push the cable back into the port, so that kind of makes this a bad purchase.2Not fancy but carries the signal 50 feet no problems!As another reviewer observed, we really don't need to have gold-plated parts in these TOSLINK connectors. They might look cool or give a sense of great quality to have fat insulating jackets and metal connector terminator plugs, but the real truth is, if the fiber cable inside is doing its job, then you are good.If the cable terminators snap into your equipment and stay put, you are doing great, and if the cable is sturdy and flexible enough to bend around corners then you are golden. This product does all four, and without costing a week's pay!I am running out of a satellite receiver into a two-way splitter then running 50 feet with this cable into a Denon receiver which is getting Dolby D +PL IIx and outputting 7.1 audio as though the source is in the same rack.This Rite AV cable snaps securely into its connectors and wraps pretty closely around corners such as door frames and 90-degree wall corners. I'm very pleased that it's working as well as I'd hoped. Highly recommended.5Get r done!This cable is cheap and gets it done. I was considering getting an Aurum higher quality cable for a little heftier price, but decided to go with this instead. No complaints. Oh it has dust caps that are connected to the cable so you dont lose them. Thats about the most awesome feature you dont see on any other cable. Raise your hands if you actually dont lose those damn things once you remove them. That feature alone is worth buying this cable.It looks like an average quality cable that would come free with a product, and it gets it done like so. You plug it in, ponder if you should have gotten the more expensive one, and forget about it after a day.If you are worried about the price, this cable will get it done for its price. I doubt you need the higher quality ones unless you are in NASA and distortion is a problem.4It works, fit and finish slightly offJust like most digital cables, these either work or they don't; quality of signal is not really an issue like it was in the analog days, unless you're dealing with really long HDMI cables or the like. Anyhow, this cable works well, and I've been happy with it for the last three years of ownership. I use it to push audio out from the Samsung 58" DLP TV to my receiver; this setup works nicely because I end up with only one cable going from the TV to the receiver, everything else just enters the TV via HDMI. Clean setup.My only complaint is that the ends are a bit small compared to the optical ports on my TV and receiver; the cable doesn't get held in by much if any tension like you'd expect, it just sort of sits in the port. It is enough to stay there normally but it falls right out if you bump it or move the receiver or anything else. Not a deal breaker but a bit annoying.4Works GreatThese cables are not heavy jacketed and strain relieved as pictured. The ends are not polished. It appears as bulk cable cut to length and toslink connectors attached, something anybody can do in their garage. However they work great. There is a jacket but it is not as thick as pictured. The jacket that is there is more than sufficient to protect the cable for wall installation as I ran this through walls and ceiling from a closet PC to a HDVIO splitter. However since I have kittys that like to clean their teeth on small diameter wires, I have to armor plate all my exposed small cables. I mention this as there may be others that have the same problem. An option is to use a short toslink cable that is already armor jacked and a toslink coupler so the exposed length running to the gear won't be chewed on. Another option is to spiral wrap the exposed end with cable armor.4Utilitarian, gets the job doneGiven that many TOSLINK fiber optic cables can rapidly approach the domain of "absurdly expensive" and usually only justify their prices by making the shielding or the plugs or the branding thicker or more outrageous, I was glad to see one that was designed to do its job and not anything else. It's not aesthetically pleasing. It's a clear plastic tube dipped in opaque plastic with two knobs on either end. It is VERY thin; this may be a feature if you're running it through the wall or between floors. Most importantly, the plugs on either end seem to fit snugly in all of the TOSLINK adapters I've tried it in, and the transmission of data seems to be fine.This is, however, a cord that is dangerously susceptible to user error. Given the minimal shielding, any amount of mishandling could spell disaster. The fiber optic cord is not particularly flexible, so any excessive tugging, pinching, or knotting could crack the fiber. Once you get it set up though, you're not going to be moving it very frequently (like, say ever) so it's perfectly fine. I have enough thick, garishly colored wires hanging out behind my TV. Something this thin is sort of a relief at this point.5Connectors are a very poor designSome of the reviewers proudly exclaimed that these are "as good as Monster". I consider that an adequate description because Monster is the most overpriced, over-valued brand in connecting media. These are cheaper but they're no better. The male connectors on the cables are absolutely huge! The result: a big, heavy connector which will fall out of your component female recepticle if the fit isn't perfect. Half of ours were far from that, so as a result we're constantly picking them up off the floor and reinserting them. We've even resorted to wrapping a thin piece of electric tap around the connector to tighten the fit and adding a "suspender" to hold these very heavy chords up to keep it aligned with our Receiver. I would encourage readers to take a look at Mediabridge - Toslink Cable - Optical Digital Audio Cable by Mediabridge. They are also 25 ft., but lighter weight, cheaper, and fit perfectly into every component we installed them to. Much better value for the money.3Works great, using with a PS3I use my PS3 to watch DVD's, Bluerays, and movies on Netflix & Amazon Prime. My PS3 is hooked up to a projector and to a Onkyo home theater speaker system. Originally I was using the standard audio output cables with the ps3 which are just a red and white rca cable. It took me days to figure out that a PS3 cannot output digital surround sound without an optical audio cable. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a cable and this option turned out to be an awesome solution. Like other reviews I was shocked at how small and thin this cable was. I was pretty skeptical that it could do the job. I hooked it up to the PS3 and to the Stereo Receiver. (for those of you trying to hook up a PS3 also, you have to go into the sound settings on the PS3 AFTER hooking up the optical cable and tell it to output in Dolby Digital 5.1) The sound is awesome. Before, I had to turn the volume way up to hear people speaking then quickly back down during any action scenes. It was a very annoying way to watch a movie. With this cable the sound is balanced. It also enables me to use all of the Dolby options on the Receiver which I never had before. Be careful not to bend/crease this type of cable.5Amazing Cable For The Price !!!I bought this mainly because it was cheap and although didn't really have high expectations for something that costs the same price as a cheap haircut I figured I would give it a shot for the money. When I received it I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was of fairly good quality despite the cheap price tag and despite other reviewers saying that theirs was very thin. So I hooked it up to my laptop via toslink adapter and connected it to my h/k receiver and tested everything I could get my digital hands on. I was very pleased to see that it had no loss in signal as well as had great sound quality. It was also able to pass all of the surround sound formats such as dts, dolbly pro-logic II, ect. without a hitch. I currently use this about every day for the past 6 months to stream music from my laptop at my desk to the stereo in the living room as well as for parties because it allows me to control my music without being in the crowd of people. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a long run of optical audio cable without breaking the bank on a fancy overly exuberant high price cable.5
