      It is really hard to review this kind of cable, First, you take it out of the package -- easy. Then you unfold it, followed by taking the little protective caps off. plug one end into the TV and the other end into the soundbar. Then make the sound output of the TV be digital. followed by making the audio source on your soundbar Digital. Done! Enjoy your TV sound on your soundbar. OK, OK, there is nothing said about the product -- it's an optical audio cable. There is nothing to say. You need one and are willing to pay for it -- buy it!

      If ARC won't work, this is what you need

      When my new 4K TV was installed the ARC (Audio Return Channel) would not work. This was probably because my new TV is a different brand from my home theater equipment. This optical digital audio cable provides the best alternate audio connection between the TV and my 5.1 home theater and the surround sound works like a champ. I have read that a longer length of this type of cable does not affect sound quality and I need this 12 foot length to be sure the cable is not too tight when I move equipment. (If you have a DVR be sure to select Dolby Digital in the DVR's settings. Otherwise you might not get 5.1 sound.)

      Optical Cable for Mini Soundbar

      I purchased a Rocketfish Optical Cable for the Mini Soundbar that I purchased for my kitchen TV. I have a Rocketfish Cable on my BOSE sound system in the living room and that cable fixed my problem there. When I hooked up this cable to my kitchen TV, the sound cuts out and I have not yet isolated whether it is the soundbar or the cable. Using this cable, I was able to get the soundbar to work as the cable that came with the soundbar does not produce any sound on the soundbar. The price is a little high, but I purchased it with Christmas money so I bought it.

      This was used to connect the Optical Port on the Wireless Receiver Base for my RF Headphones to my HDTV. The cable is nice and sturdy and while I had slight difficulty getting it into my TV at first, some firm force got it in for good. The length is perfect for and is what seems to be most important in this product. If your device of choice is going to be far away from your source, you may be better off buying the 8' or 12' version of this product.

      You must upgrade everything- including the cables!

      I upgraded to everything 4k, my TV and receiver and all other components. I got everything home and hooked everything up to my older hdmi cables. The picture did not look as sharp as it did in the store. I went back, got these cables, hooked it all up again and you can see a difference. I was thinking these cables were a scam for more money but they actually do improve the quality of the picture. Bite the bullet and upgrade the cables too when getting new 4k equipment.

      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.

      I have an Aqous smart tv and a sound bar that I originally had set up through an HDMI cord, and constantly over the last three years the sounds constantly dropped out, and the sound bar would disconnect, for no reason at all. Finally got fed up with it and bought the optical cable, aaaaand couple months later everything’s working like a charm! Knock on wood. I’m very happy!!!!

      The optical cable itself works but I have purchased audioquest in the past and this cable does not fit well in the back of my tv as well as the audioquest. I purchased this in place of the audioquest simply because it was less and I needed a longer cable after purchasing a new tv. As mentioned the cable serves its purpose and does send a signal regardless of the fit.
