Fibre Optic Leads-any benefits in paying more?


Tonto

Recommended Posts

I use two 3m Toslink in my system. They were the cheapest/skinnest I could find.

Are there any advantages (beside build quality) to more expensive cables?

Has anyone changed a toslink cable and noticed a sonic difference?

What do you guys use?

BTW I'm in the if it sounds better it is better camp. :)

I prefer 3m as they go from the PS3 and SKY Box that is under the TV to the speakers which are ADM9.1 with internal DAC. Shorter would mean I compromise spacing of the speakers.

For the sake of the question though 1m-3m.

The Van Den Hul Octocoupler gets really solid reviews, but it is around $160 for the 3M version which is a highly unreasonable buy especially since you'd have to purchase two at that price. A really good budget cable that has glass fibers instead of plastic like most cheaper ones is: http://www.uniqueproductsonline.com/gltodiopca.html They have a 3.6m for $30. Much more reasonable.
