    WHAT A GREAT PRODUCT

    I couldn't get my new TV to work with my stereo. I tried all the old fashioned cables. I went to Best Buy and told them my problem. They asked if my receiver had an optical port. I bought the system about 8 years ago from Best Buy and did not know. My wife took a picture of the back of the unit, text it to me, and the port was there. I attached the optical cable to the TV and receiver and the sound is phenomenal.

    Terrific Sound Reproduction

    I recently purchased a Samsung QLED 65 inch TV. My audio receiver is an older Yamaha A/V that does not support HDMI CEC communication with the new QLED TV. The next best choice is an optical connection for audio between the two. To say the least I was very surprised and impressed with the HD Dolby sound being sent through this optical cable. I feel there is no difference in sound quality between this cable and an HDMI connection

    Recently I decided I wanted to drive the audio off of the TV. I had an Apple TV unit and played Youtube content on the screen, but I wanted better audio. I used this cable from the Audio Out on my LG Smart TV to the back of my Sony Theater system. Now I can watch Youtube music videos and have some seriously good audio! I just turn down the TVs volume and crank up the theater volume to avoid the subtle audio latency between the two signals. Love it...

    Works as advertised

    The optical cable lets you hook up components directly to your "Smart TV" without going through the receiver and you can still get stereo sound just by turning on the receiver. As a bonus, now you control all your components, except the receiver, with the TV remote. Set-up is not intuitive so watch the videos. I bought the optical cable because the ARC cable did not work as advertised.

    Used this 8'cable to connect Samsung 40" TV M#UN40NU7100 to Onkyo Receiver HT-R320. Onkyo Receiver is an old receiver with no HDMI input, but Receiver is working well and optical cables were my only option. Sounds great and allows me to get extra mileage out of the receiver.

    While we were encouraged to purchase the significantly more expensive cable, we settled on this one and it seems to be doing a great job. Granted, we didn’t buy the expensive watch compared to but I can’t imagine it would’ve done anything differently than this rockfish. We were happy to save the money and get a great product

    Bought this cable and it looked really nice! So I ran it through the wall with the other cables going to my TV,being that I’m using the new options on the new TV like Netflix etc. So I needed the cable to get 5.1 audio to my receiver and it works great and went through the wall and tight spaces with no issues.

    The connection was clean and easy. Sound is clean and crisp. The speakers really thump. If you have spent the money on a great tv and high quality speakers why hook them up with crappie cable. Using a football analogy: Your running down the field and fumbling the ball on the 1 yard line. Worth the money.

    I had my previous iMac for about 7 years, but it was time to replace it. This new one has more power, storage, memory etc and was much cheaper than the one I am replacing! The only downside I see is that it doesn't have a DVD drive, so I had to purchase an external DVD Writer.

    This is a good intermediate length that will accommodate most HDTV/Sound bar setups. This was an impulse purchase when offered on sale and one cannot go wrong with Rockfish (TM). Would recommend to friend only if offered again on sale, however.

    I have a Samsung Soundbar and was using Bluetooth until I purchased a new TV that is all WIFI based. Rather than purchasing a new soundbar, I bought this cable to make the direct connection and the sound quality is as good or better than before.

    A new entertainment unit necessitated a looong optical cable that I did not have. Best Buy was open and close to me on a Friday night, and while the price point was a bit higher than some mail order options I was glad they were there.

    It turned out the problem is with my Bose 3-2-1 system. Discovered this before replacing the audio cables. I've always been happy with other items by this brand, so I'm saving the cables in case I need them in the future.

    My kitten chewed the old optical cable which had wonky connectors and no over jacket. The Rocketfish cable has nice positive locking connectors with a thick outer jacket that should be kitten resistant.

    My Geek Squad girl recommended this cable so our surround sound would work more efficient. She was right. Everyone complements our speakers and the sound that comes out. I recommend this to everyone!

    We asked the sales associate if this was needed with the sound bar we purchased. He told us there was one in the packaging. Wrong! There was an HDMI cable in the box, but not the optical audio cable. It works great with our Samsung TV and Klipsch sound bar.

    I purchased a new smart TV but needed a solution to connect the sound with some older tech. This cable did the trick and now I have great sound in my "Drum Room" where I can play along with all the greats on You Tube.

    Needed an 8-foot audio cable to connect to my TV. This did the trick. Works great and love the fact that it comes in different sizes. Didn't need a 10-footer and the 8-footer worked great!
