I originally made a mistake in ordering a 1m version of this cable, I called AVOPRO up, they changed the order to a 3m length and were incredibly helpful, to the point where I believe the operator actually ran down to the warehouse to stop it being dispatched!
You do not need to spend a penny more on a toslink cable as its a digital connection sending 1's and 0's - They either get there or they don't! No amount of cable insulation (light is not affected by electromagnetic fields!)/gold interconnects (what!?) etc will make a single bit of difference to this type of connection! Please don't be fooled into spending a fortune by other utter rip-off companies!
What you do need to know is that the cable performs brilliantly as expected, and 'snaps' into place very well - Some badly built toslink cables have a tendancy to fall out of the connecting optical sockets.

All in all I heartily reccomend this buy, backed up by a great company, providing a great sevice and prompt delivery. Cheers!

Bought the cable, was my first digital optical so was a little nervous. Works perfectly with clean detailed sound, and great quality. Had a few problems inserting them into my machines and no instructions so wanted to help others out. The cable comes with 2 little plastic bulbs on the end to protect the link. These have to be eased off (its not hard) then they will slip into your machines without problems. I hope this helps peeps. :)

My order arrived promptly and performs perfectly in my Multi-Channel Sony Surround sound system. The Fisual DIGITAL OPTICAL 5 metre Toslink cable routes DOLBY encoded multichannel audio.It is plugged into a VIRGIN CABLE TV V+BOX rear Toslink socket to the SONY STR-DG820 Toslink optical input sosket 4 metres or so away down the side of our lounge with lovely decoded surround sound eminating from all my surround sound speakers.A true bargain,so "WHY PAY MORE". A very satisfied customer, Adrian-ENFIELD,UK.

I was looking for an optical cable to connect up my Sky HD box and came across this cable. Ordering and delivery smooth and the cable works very well. Would recommend.

I bought some of these cables to connect my Virgin Media V+ box & Xbox 360 to my home cinema system and they work great !!! Amazing value for money, shopped around and this was by far the cheapest I could find. But there's no cheapness in the quality though, does the job perfectly.

Needed an optical cable to use my Xbox 360 with Logitech Z5500 speakers, decided to go for this and am glad I did. Excellent quality and a bargain at this price. Now I just need some soundproofing so can pump the volume up without disturbing the neighbours!

Excellent cable, looks really professional with the silver end :)
I've put Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS through this (from a Sky+ box and PS3) and it works perfectly, with my surroud sound system confirming it was receiving the appropriate sound format.

Where do I start.... Firstly don't be fooled by the appearance of these cables.
I ordered two of these cables, one to connect my PS3 and the other to connect my SKY+ HD box.
One was DOA and has never worked.
The almost working cable was of poor quality. The plastic connectors that actually sit in the female connector on the device receiving the sound; Are poorly constructed, they were different sizes on each end of the cable (by that I mean they were several mm out). The plastic was soft and after plugging it in and out a few times (testing the broken cable) the connectors were loose, due to cheap soft plastic.

The silver sheaf round the cable is flimsy and cheap. The working cable caused the sound to break up every 10-20 seconds to the point it was un-usable.

Was I just unlucky? Maybe, but I have now spent a bit more and got the Lindy versions and they work perfectly 1st time with no issues.

So in summary, these cables may work for you, but in my experience the quality was so shocking that even someone as tight as me went and spent a bit more else where.

I am also having issues with the supplier and returning them. Audiovisual on line do not respond to emails....
