      The sound provided today is “Super Fantastic.”

      On 1/24/2015 I bought a Samsung 65” LED Curved 4K Ultra HD TV. The cost of the TV was $2,300. You would think the sound system would be fantastic, it wasn’t. On 1/27/2015 I bought a Bose CineMate 15 Home Theater System. The folks at Best Buy were not sure if the HDMI digital optical cable came with the Bose CineMate 15 system until we opened the box. It was short, so I upgraded to the AudioQuest Forest OptiLink 4.9'. I never used the stock cables from Bose, so I cannot rate the difference. I can say the Bose CineMate 15 system with AudioQuest Forest OptiLink 4.9' cables sound much better than the Samsung 65” LED HD TV stock speakers. It seems to make sense when buying a premium HD TV to upgrade the sound system, thus the cables to then equal the HD TV viewing and sound experience. Is this the right thing to do? The choice is up to you. At least we as consumers have the option. Yes, I am satisfied with all my purchases leading up to the AudioQuest Forest OptiLink 4.9' cables. I would do it all over again if I had a “do over.” The sound provided today is “Super Fantastic.” The HD TV viewing and sound experience is complete.

      As someone else has pointed out, I was not really knowledgeable regarding optical cables simply because i just never needed one but once i got OLED TV - it really did not have any other output but optical and i needed a great sound coming out of the smart TV so, i did read lots of reviews on this brand and all of the "real" reviews were great. I also did read that there are differences between some cheap non-brand or some not so popular brands in the quality of sound. So, the decision was easy for me. I bought it and hooked it up through YAMAHA receiver. I now watch youtube and listen to pandora or anything else from the smart tv and the sound is great. I really have no complaints.

      I picked this toslink cable up while at bestbuy looking for a decent optical and before that I had never heard of audioquest products but after doing some research on there website and across the web I found that any of there products whether it's speaker wire, hdmi cabels, toslink cables or composite cables are some of the best products out there and some of the most expensive. If your planning on spending the $ on any of their cables I can say that your going to get the best sound or video transmission possible. All their products are made with the best metals and fiber optic available. Simple to setup and use no matter what cable you bought. Top of the Line quality on everything AudioQuest sells.

      Great cable for starters

      This is a great starting cable for optical coupling with newer generation of Televisions. This works well if you have a 2 way sound equipment like a soundbar, and you don't want to invest in an a/v receiver. You don't have to switch inputs to your TV. Just plug this cable out to your soundbar OR other equipment and enjoy sound from any input (Cable / Internet TV, Blu-ray etc) without the need of switching the input to the soundbar. You may not be able to control the sound volume from the soundbar using your TV Remote as the optical out is not controlled via your tv remote. Overall, a nice experience. Deducting one star because the TVs don't regulate the optical out, though this is no fault of this cable.

      Needed for HD TV set up

      I needed this cable per my son to complete the install of a Samsung 3D Smart HD TV. I also purchased a Sony sound bar with sub woofer & a power surge protector, HDMI cable. There's a slight chance this cable was used with the sound bar. My son did the entire install with ease & parts were all over the place so I can't be sure. There was a small thin cable that resembled this included with the TV or Sound bar, can't remember, but again, per my son, this one was better quality. I believe it was fairly inexpensive as well.

      WHY DOES A 3 METER LONG CABLE COST $200.00? INSANE Had to run a new line for my Home Theater system across the room. Same length CAD6 line cost $20.00 Bought 4k TV, Geek Squad said I had to have these along with a Balun transmitter/receiver kit for another $370.00 I order to get the 4k signal. If I had been told I needed all of this upgrade stuff, would not have bought a 4k TV. As of now, NOTHING IS BROADCAST IN 4K! Expensive TV Video upgrade

      Perfect digital optical output cable

      A lightening storm blew out the HDMI output on my Denon A/V Receiver. Per the recommendation of a technician, I purchased this digital optical output cable to route the sound from the other receiver outputs through my TV and back to the receiver. This temporary solution has proven to work extremely well. As a side note, I would highly recommend that everyone purchase a surge protector that includes CABLE WIRE filtering to prevent a lightening surge coming into your home through the cable wire.

      Expensive cable

      This cable is the best. No problems with bending it around corners two and three times in order to get it connected to the si-called "smart TV's" cable box. If Samsung were to ever improve its Audio capabilities - which I doubt will ever happen -- then you'd no longer need this king-of-all-wires. Does its job better than any other on the market but it's also the most costly. You get what you pay for. No sacrifices on sound with this wire.
