Cable Solutions TOS-Series TOSLink Optical Cables are made with low-loss 5mm OD single-strand plastic fiber optic cable, precision terminated with high-quality all-metal connectors with integrated strain-reliefs to reduce stress on the fiber.
With attenuation of only 0.14 dB per meter, these cables actually out-perform many glass fiber cables, both optically and mechanically, making them an ideal choice for many digital audio applications, including Dolby Digital and DTS and CD audio.
Made to the same specs as those used on the respected Vampire Wire TOS Series II, our connectors are installed using a heat-set epoxy method to ensure high performance and long life. The fiber is meticulously polished using super-fine polishing film to ensure a superior equipment interface.
With such low attenuation, our TOS-Series interconnect cables can also handle longer runs, solving a wide range of optical audio hook-up problems.
Optical digital audio cables have an advantage over coaxial cables when it comes to ground preventing loops. Since the signal path is completely free of any electrically conductive materials, ground loops become impossible. Anyone who has experienced the way that ground loops can affect an audio system will appreciate this quality.
We are currently offering connectors in both pewter and blue anodized finishes although we have recently standardized on the pewter color. If you find that you need a longer length than offered here, please check our blue anodized option.
