Nice, good quality cable for the price that does the job. I would not say that the price is good if I did not get it on sale, but I did, so kudos to Best Buy for giving me that break. My cable was 8 ft long and that's about perfect in length for my purposes. Since it is digital, do not worry about any degradation in audio quality on less expensive cables since there will be none when the signal stays digital from the source to your receiver. This cable can be used on sound bars, connecting TVs to receivers, or other similar application. I like the fact that the cable has adequate thickness and padding for the fiber optic cable inside so that it offers enough protection from accidentally breaking the glass inside. The cable is not name brand (like "Monster") or such, but that is not necessary if you just want functionality. Besides, your friends won't be snooping around the back of your audio system, unless they are true hi-fi nuts, and you will not find many of those anymore. It does not have the fancy metal or gold plated end connectors, that would have bumped the rating to a 5 star, but that is not absolutely essential, unless you expect the cable to get extreme abuse, which an optical cable will not hold up to anyhow. This review is a little over kill for a low cost cable, but hope all the detail helps you on your purchasing decision. Thanks for reading.
