This is an excellent Toslink optical cable. I have owned a wide variety of Toslink cables, from generic to high-end, and this cable compares favorably with any of them. A common misconception is that any optical cable will perform well but this is simply not true. Any reasonably well constructed cable will propagate light sufficiently well to provide the audio receiver with the light pulses it needs to decode the incoming audio data. However, cables that are not engineered with superior materials and to exacting specifications can introduce propagation errors that will not only cause signal loss but can also cause frequency changes as well as data delays. While most well designed receivers can recover from data problems the resultant signal will be lessened in fidelity with a corresponding loss of potentially both high as well as low frequencies. Additionally, data delays will cause clock phase noise (i.e. jitter) that will cause a noticeable degradation and spreading out of the audio signal.

While any cable manufacturer can claim that their cable has superior performance, the proof is in the listening. And the iVanky optical cable, to my ear, has outstanding performance. I am very particular with my audio and video components, using only high quality HDMI cables to transfer the audio and video signals from source to TV – then using a Toslink cable to transfer the audio source to the receiver. This to minimize any possibly of signal degradation. The iVanky cable provides for extraordinary clear sounds, with tight highs and booming lows. In addition, while I did not measure the frequencies that the receiver received, I was unable detect any apparent loss of frequency at either the high or low end. The sounds coming from the speakers were very tight and clear, with no noticeable jitter. I very highly recommend the iVanky Toslink cable.

Top Critical Review

This is not a universal cable. The protective plastic housing for the end is too big to fit into a recessed optical outlet such as the one I have on my Vizio TV. It can’t be used in a recessed device outlet unless the recess hole is large. ….More: Many of these cables, like this one, have rugged, big, protective sleeves as a selling point. This particular sleeve is so large it won’t fit at all into one of my Vizio soundbars because the input outlet is recessed. It also doesn’t fit into another Vizio soundbar I have because the sleeve again prevents it from going all the way into the input outlet. This seems to be a common problem with this cable and others like it and various soundbars, especially Vizio soundbars. Often, in the ‘questions answered’ section of product descriptions, the problem of inserting the cable is written off to the newbie mistake of not taking off the protective plastic caps. However, the problem is with the size of the sleeves and how much they interfere with inserting completely into the input outlet of the device.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can i use it to connect my yamaha soundbar to samsung tv?
Answer: No answer for this question. But ironically, I’m buying this cable because I can’t get sound from my Samsung tv from my yamaha soundbar using HDMI.

I??m trying to use it for my PS4. Does this optical cable work for gaming???
Answer: This Toslink cable is perfect for connecting devices with optical ports. I think the PS4 should have an optical port, so it would work.

Can I use this cable to connect my television to my home theater?
Answer: Please make sure both devices have an optical jack. If they do, you can certainly hook them together. The cable works great!
