I bought this for TV audio (samsung) to Denon AVR X2100W.
It does not automatically switch like HDMI ARC.
But I don't need it too.
Must switch Samsung from speaker to audio / optical
Then select Optical on denon clicker.
By the way. I saw some didn't install or click in place.
CAREFUL No instructions, but, there's a rubber cover on the connector and if you don't take it off, it could end up inside your tv or audio making plug in impossible until you use something to fish it out.
Recently purchased a sound bar for our tv because of my hearing loss and could not hear the tv without turning the volume way up. I did not have the correct HDMI connection on the tv so I had to go with the Optical Audio Cable. The end result was great sound at a lower volume. I can now hear what is being said with background music or sporting events.
Optical audio is likely the best way to transmit state of the art sound from a video source to an older sound system has hat has optical audio but not HDMI. in this case an LG C9 to an old Yamaha Rv1 with an 8.1 speaker set up. Bass sounds from Netflix and Prime movies are once again shaking the room through a ML woofer and Anthony Gallo Nucleus speakers providing immersive surround sound. The 4’ length is great for connecting the cable box but a little tight for the screen connection so make sure you purchase the right length for your setup. These connected no issues and the packaging was earth friendly (no plastic). Bought two.
Needed an Optical Audio cable for my Sonos sound bar. Opted for the Rocketfish 4' Toslink cable. It was at the right price point for a performance cable. After install, it performs well and I get excellent sound out of the speaker. Note, it comes in different lengths, so make sure you measure the length you need before purchasing. I recommend.
I've been very happy with the quality and production of my Rocketfish Toslink Optical Audio Cable. I bought them to add a little spunk to the new soundbar I purchased for one of our TV's and couldn't be happier with the performance.
Im not sure what my husband used this cord for. So I am assuming it worked for him. Because he did not tell me to return it to the store. He is a stickler of keeping items around the house we are not using.
