    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.

    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!!!!

    I didn’t think my 12 year old RCA 5.1 surround sound system would connect to the new tv and 4K Blu-ray player I recently bought from Best Buy but then I noticed it had a optical audio port. I bought this one from Best Buy (of course), connected it from my old surround sound system to the Blu-ray player, and it’s worked perfectly... no complaints. Now I enjoy the DVDs even more!

    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.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    DVD to sound bar

    Purchased to connect DVD player to sound bar. Prior to purchase had to disconnect HDMI cord (cable box to sound bar cord) & plug DVD HDMI into sound bar & then undo it all to watch cable again. This cord allows me to hsve both devices connected simultaneously & just use the tv remote to switch from tv (HDMI 1) to DVD on the screen. Easy fix to an annoying issue!!
