Very good quality, even better price.,
This review is from: Fisual 1.5m Pro Install Series Digital Coaxial Cable (Accessory)Product Review
I was looking for a coax cable to hook up my home theater PC with my Logitech Z-5500 as the optical input was already used by my Sky box. The cable arrived next day from the day I ordered it but supprisingly it had no packaging apart from being in a jiffy bag. My dissapointment for the lack of packaging only lasted 2 seconds though as I soon realised this was a real bargain. The cable is nice and thick and the build quality is as good (maybe even better than some) as cables that retail for £40+. Great if you want a cheap high quality cable to hook up a "coax digital output" device to an amplifier and enjoy flawless sound.
Comments for less technical people
If your dvd player/blu-ray/etc AND amplifier supports it; the cable is capable to send any type of signal including Dolby Digital and DTS surround. Make sure both of your devices have a "Coax Digital" port. Don't confuse this with RCA (Usually Yellow/White/Red).
Tips for HTPC(A bit technical)
Sound quality is considerably better than before as the PC now does not decode the digital sound stream. Instead, it sends it directly to the amplifier which decodes it accordingly. By doing this, you can get awesome sound quality from your motherboard integrated soundcard without investing in an expensive sound card. Your soundcard might not have an option to send surround sound via the S/PDIF port (Digital Coax) but fear not! You can do this by installing ffdshow and enable surround sound to be passed to the S/PDIF. This supports Dolby Digital as well as DTS audio.
