What Are Digital Audio Cables


A digital audio cable provides an audio connection between your A/V receiver and your TV or converter. Unlike analog audio cables, which uses two separate wires to provide a left and right audio channel, a digital audio cable uses one wire to pass multiple channels of sound, meaning it can be used for Surround Sound.

Even if you do not have a Surround Sound setup, a digital audio cable can still be used in place of of analog audio cables.

There are two types of digital audio cables: optical (sometimes called toslink) and coaxial.

Optical Digital Audio Cable Coaxial Digital Audio Cable

Most users will not detect any difference in sound quality between the two types. Which wire to use mainly depends on which wire your equipment supports. If you have a choice, consider the following based on your particular setup needs:

  • Coaxial digital audio cables tend to have a tighter, more secure connection. They are very durable but begin to suffer a loss in quality at lengths longer than 10 feet.
