Top Positive Review

I needed this to connect my television to the Denon Receiver I got to replace a Sony Receiver which died. I had been using simple stereo connection cable previously. The Denon has an optical input port for the television’s sound output which the Sony lacked. I wanted the better connection so I purchased this one.

Big plusses are the cable’s wrap. It looks attractive and should protect the fiber optic cable for long service. The connectors are also sturdy.

Neutral is the length. I was thinking of ordering a 15′ cable but this one ony came in 12′, so that is what I bought. It is just long enough to reach the television’s optical out and the receiver’s optical in. I am also not sure what benefit the gold plating is since it is the fiber which carries the signal.

What cost a star is the connections. Unlike some optical cables I have used. this one was hard to get plugged in, both on the television and on the receiver. It ligned up easily enough, but did not want to snap in place like some of the cables I have used. I am left guessing as to whether I got it fully inserted or not. It seems to be working properly, so I must have gotten it right. I would prefer a more positive feedback though.

Top Critical Review

This is not a well designed optical cable because of the connectors…

The connectors here do not “lock” into place like high quality optical connectors should. And because the connectors are metal they are very heavy, which creates even more of a problem. Due to the weight they want to fall out of the ports when plugged in. The cable I got worked just fine but I wouldn’t trust the connectors. Any kind of movement would probably make them fall out. I replaced this with an Amazon Basics and its much better.

Customer Questions & Answers

Is the optical fiber glass or plastic?
Answer: Optical is always glass never plastic

Will this cable work for sound through speakers from my Onkyo receiver to TV?
Answer:

Dear customer,

Yes, the Optical Audio Cable can work with your Onkyo receiver and TV.

Any other question, please feel free to contact us.
??

Is it good to install in-wall/crawl space?
Answer: I would. The cable insulation is very high quality. I think it would be just fine. Obviously it would have to be dry.

I wouldn??t use it outdoors or anywhere it would be exposed to the weather. I??d use it anywhere inside.

What??s the min bend radius for this cable
Answer:

Dear Customer,

The min bend radius for this cable is 50mm.

If you have any other question, please feel free to contact us from Amazon Message Center.

Where is this cable made?
Answer: In Asia,,, this is the third one I bought over the past 4 years. They work fine. Just difficult to insert in their receptacles … do not use brute force…. just work each end gingerly into it. Do not forget to remove the very small protective cap on each end before inserting.
