Don't forget to remove the caps – Premium TOSLINK Digital Audio Optical Cable (3M-Length) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It works. Reasonable build quality, and reasonably solid construction.
Cons:
It is far from obvious that the translucent caps are just caps,and need to be removed. I almost damaged my CD player trying to remove them. It would make a lot more sense if they were black or red or something to make it more obvious that you need to remove them. Even once I realised I had to remove them, one didn't come off easily, and I had to use my teeth to pull it off. It did click into place, but not all that firmly.
Other:
Bottomline:
Does the job, works fine, but don't try to plug it in until you've removed the caps.
