    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.

    Connected our Best Buy existing Yamaha RX-663 receiver/sound system to our new LG OLED TV. Easy, worked great!! The salesperson was very knowledgeable and made sure to tell me how to hook up other components too.

    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!

    When trying to get many cables through a small opening, this cable was too thick especially by the connectors... had a very hard timing fishing it through the wall and when I did it was too short

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I got this cable as an open box item. It is expensive and may not have too many uses with HDMI dominating now, but if you are looking to expand your audio options, this guy works very well.

    This optical cable works great with most receivers, although make sure it's compatible with most 5.1 or 7.1 codex. Essentially you need an actual receiver and not an out-of-box DVD or Blu-ray surround sound system

    I mounted a new TV on the wall and had to run the cables through the wall to the TV and the tuner. Six-foot cable was too short and of course a 12 foot cable was too long that need the eight footer just right.

    I didn't realize that I needed this part to get sound when connecting my TV to a receiver. You learn something new every day! THANK YOU BEST BUY for having all needed parts for running audio and video to your equipment.

    I was a little leery of purchasing this product as I'm used to connecting my TV to the surround sound system wirelessly. I incorporated this cord to the system and the sound is amazing!

    This cable connected our TV to a receiver. Consequently, we are able to enjoy Netflix and other applications through our sound system. The process was straightforward and it works.

    We purchased this cord to hook our soundbar up, and it's a MUCH more sturdy cord than the ones that may or may not come with the soundbar that you purchase. Sound quality is great

    I dropped satellite and went to streaming TV. I had to get this optical audio cable for sound from 4K TV to surround sound receiver. This was the only way and works great.

    Relatively easy way to connect streaming video to surround sound AV receiver. Just remember to take the protective covers off the probe ends. Saves a trip to the Geek Squad so they can have a good laugh.

    Connection was easy to use. Hooked to sound bar and back up through wall and then back into TV. 8 foot length was just right. Delivers good sound.

    Every fiber cable that comes with new units is too short for our furniture application. The added length enabled a reliable relaxed connection. We can now move our devices to clean and add cableing without fear of damage.

    Had to buy this when a few of my hdmi ports went out on my audio receiver. Sounds just as great but now I only need one cable so less clutter.

    At the time, I purchased this so I could move my tv to an opposite wall. It helped me to hook up my speakers but must follow instructions correctly when doing so.

    Sorry I don't see anything special about this cable to really recommend it to any one. There is nothing wrong with it and it works out for me but I can't tell you the difference between this one an another one.
