Audioquest Optilink-G Series 3 Meters (9.8 Feet) Digital Optical Cable - OPTG3M
A digital audio cable (Toslink, Coax, HDMI) is the one most important audio cable in your system. All the channels depend on this one cable to deliver undistorted sound.
Corruption of timing information, known as jitter, is the primary distortion in digital audio. Imperfections in an optical fiber scatter the light information. The light then takes many different paths within the fiber, each path having a slightly different length. This smearing of time information leads to misinterpretation of the digital data, eventually giving you sound with less clarity and more irritation.
DIRECTIONS: Remove the plastic protectors on the OptiLink cable and on equipment. Do not touch the ends of the OptiLink cable. Insert the connectors they are keyed and will only fit one way.
