Unnecessarily bulky; you should consider others – Premium TOSLINK Digital Audio Optical Cable (3M-Length) Reviews

- Cable jacket is thick. This adds some protection.
- It conducts light.
- Cable jacket is thick. This adds some weight and makes it harder to route.
- The fake gold-plated ring at the end is an annoying cosmetic addition. Mine slid out of place when trying to seat the cable.
- The cables are pretty hard to seat. I had to shove them into the devices pretty hard to get them to mate and then they did not always click solidly.
Compared to retail prices, this cable is awesomely cheap. I bought three and installed two, preferring to keep my one thinner cable as it is easier to route.
You should consider other cables ahead of this one. The fake gold sleeve is annoying.
