    Several of my devices can use the various types of toslink cables. I hope that I can get the cables in various lengths longer than 6 feet.

    Works great with ChromeCast

    |
    Posted .

    This Toshlink cable to mini-Toshlink works great with Google Chromecast. You won't be disappointed. Digital sound quality and connection pairs perfectly with a receiver that has optical inputs. Optical input is superior to analog input because there is no conversion to analog by the Chromecast D/A converter. The Digital signal goes directly in my Pioneer Elite receiver (with higher quality audio components) for conversion to the analog signal before amplification. No degradation in sound quality for maximum fidelity! The result is highest quality sound. Agreed - this cable is not a named brand cable. But digital is digital. The fiber was optically good enough to transmit the signal to the receiver, and for that reason - functionally - it works. So why pay the high prices? Generic in this case gets the job done. Agreed - I could afford the more expensive cable if I have a Pioneer Elite receiver. But I guess I was just feeling a little cheap. So long as the cable is functional. I guess with that mentality, that's why I can afford good stuff like that receiver and the other components. Agreed - I should stop talking at this point. :) Thanks for reading and hope this review was helpful.

    Helpful tool for Google chrome audio

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.

    I used this for a Google chrome audio to connect from the oreo cookie looking device, to the digital input of my receiver. It sounds great in this mode, too bad the device was killed off. I haven't had any problems with the cable. the toslink design can be a pain because it's difficult to figure out the x-y-z rotation/orientation of the plug so you know you're putting it in correctly, i was worried about damaging the connector.

    Bought to use on SPDIF laptop. Perfect!

    |
    Posted .

    I found this cable being sold at Best Buy for chromecast but after some research I found this cable will work with any 3.5mm optical SPDIF ports found on most high end laptops. So I bought it and it works flawlessly with my laptop to audio interface. I couldn't find a 3.5mm optic SPDIF at any local store and only online for $50+. So im thankful my local best buy has this in stock and at a way better price then anywhere else.

    Works Well

    My Yamaha receiver only had one 3.5 mm jack which was on the front of the receiver. Plugging my Chromecast Audio in there created an eyesore and a tempting thing for my toddler to yank on. Now I can plug my Chromecast Audio into the back of my receiver and get great audio quality to boot.

    Good as any brand

    I usually buy higher priced name branded cords for all my audio home gear but this works just as well as a Bose or Monster cable for a fraction of the price. I still recommend the good cables for HDMI and other crucial connections like TV to sound system and TV to 4K Blu-Ray player, etc.

    Works as advertised

    I listen solely to compressed music such as Pandora cast to my Chromecast audio device from a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet vice high resolution audio so I'm not entirely certain I'm getting any benefit. But it does sound good to me. I get to know I'm squeezing out every bit of sound available using the optical audio cable. One of these years I'm going to take the effort to listen to higher resolution music.

    Works as expected-good quality

    The Insignia toslink to mini-toslink cable is a quality cable with good performance and quality. I hear no sound loss, dropouts or the like, and it's a great accessory to have with the Chromecast Audio. Another reliable Insignia product. My only complaint is that it was a little pricy at $15 for a 6' cable. Otherwise, GREAT!

    Great Optical Cable

    Posted .

    This optical cable works great with the Chromecast. My cable broke so I went to Bestbuy and said this is the cable I was looking for. I bought it and have had no problems with the cable for as long as I have had it. I recommend this as a replacement cable for sure.

    Being that I already have a Chromecast audio down stairs connected with the standard cable it came with. Since using the optical cable I have been using my sound bar in my matter bedroom so much more. Well worth every penny and fast delivery.

    I don't know why I got this

    Posted .

    I use 3.5mm to RCA for all my Chromecasts. Honestly, I think I only bought this because I didn't realize they had optical audio (and from the same port!). I bought this cable and used it for awhile without issues. Went back to the old set up.

    Little gem!

    Fantastic device for those who have high end recievers / pre-amps with high end DACs. Why use the built in Chromcast DACS when you can Bitstream out for hi-red 96KHz 24bit sound. Works great with all streaming files and lets your equipment do the work. Love it!

    I'm sure this would have been an excellent accessory for the Chromecast Audio I returned. I was really excited to use this to connect it my Sonos System! Maybe when Apple allows Google a little more flexibility I'll get this again.

    I use this cable to connect a MacBook Pro headphone/optical combo jack to a digital analog converter that accepts optical input of the standard kind. So far, it works flawlessly.

    Overall a good cable and generally affordable. I bought it to use with my Apple Airport Express, so I can airplay music to my existing speakers. I believe it works with chromecast as well.

    I bought this on a good sale from Best Buy. It connects my Chromecast Audio to my surround sound system very well with much better sound than the RCA hook up...
