The difference in the audio signal was as plain as night and day! The audio sound much more clearer and crisp especially when watching DVD movies and listening to audio CDs.

Compared to the high-priced name-brand alternatives, you get (at least with this type of interconnect) the same thing, with connectors that (unlike other Brand X connectors) are not evidently cheap and flimsy, and do not easily become detached from the cable itself. Optical connects usually either work or they don't, since the only thing they need to do is get the light from point A to point B. The problems occur when the construction is so flimsy that the cable pulls away from the lens port connector at each end of the interconnect, usually because they are not attached well, and pull away. I have pulled cheap links out of their connector merely trying to disconnect them from the equipment. But I've never had a problem like this with Rocketfish optical interconnect cables. Realistically, these are now a commodity item, and if you're going to buy Brand X, this is the brand to buy. They are not only good enough, but as good, IMHO, as the brand-name cables.

Posted by: Thovarf from: Glenmoore, PA on A summer thunderstorm while we were away from the house resulted in our needing to replace a number of items. Our new soundbar would not use the familiar RCA plugs, so we needed an optical cable. This one works fine!

I could've purchase this type of optical cable at many different retailers, but I can definitely tell the quality of this optical cable is significantly better than the cheaper ones I came across at many different retailers...hence why I paid about $6 - $10 more for this one. Needed sound seperate fron HDMI Posted by: four5bandit from: Austin, TX on I wanted to play my ps4 and listen to music at the same time on my Harmon Kardon AVR 1700.I have all my video componets passing through my reciever. I was not able to do two things at once with using a HDMI cord only. The Optical works great and now I can do two things at once through my reciever Excellent cable Posted by: jaredawatson from: on Excellent cable for the price point - recommended by BestBuy and works great.
