I bought this cable mainly for connection between my iPod speaker dock and my laptop for playing music and DVDs. I have also used it for connection to my iPhone, which is not compatible with my speaker dock. The 3m length of the lead is very practical. The sound quality when using the lead is very good, even at high volume. The lead presents excellent value for money and I would recommend it for other users, like myself, who want an affordable lead for casual usage.
