I tried two cheaper ones, but these made the sound boomy and woolly, so I decided to spend a little more on this Fisual cable.
What a difference. The sound now is clear and natural with the perfect amount of Bass and Treble, and speech is as good as it gets.
Do not believe that all optical cables are the same as "the experts" would have us believe. They are not, as I have proved.
Buy this cable and you won't be disappointed.
On arrival in a padded jiffy bag, it looked a good cable and was well made. When i tried to connect the item to my vision box, it would not fit. I decided to have a closer look at the ends of the cable and noticed that the ends had a clear plastic type finish on them that was quite hard. Now, never having had an optical fibre cable before, i was not sure whether this was part of the cable or not.
I decided to phone the number on the website and was surprised when my call was answered straight away. The Lady on the phone said that the plastic type material on the ends of the cable were just a protection and that you can remove them with your nails which is what i did.
Having done this and connected to my amp, i selected a downloaded film and was met with Dolby Digital suround sound, nice and clear.
So, to cap it all, this is a Quality product with a great aftersales, Just remeber to take off the clear protection before trying to connect to your equipment!
I do however have one complaint. The physical connection between the cable and my TV, and the other end in my amp is not very secure. There is no solid 'click' once the cable has been plugged in, and it is quite loose so may fall out after a while. However this may just be a problem with my specific cable. I have another one on order so will be able to confirm for sure then. If need be, I will modify this review if my next cable is fine.
I use it between my Sony PS3 and my Sony 5.1 Surround.
Anyway, I took a close look at the back of the Virgin box and was initially disappointed that I couldn't attach my existing audio cables. However, the receiver did contain a single optical audio socket and I therefore decided to make a brand new connection to my Yamaha amplifier.
This Fisual Pearl cable appears solidly manufactured and I was mightily relieved to be able to join it to my amplifier without too much difficulty. My eyesight was put to the test however, because the end connecting pins are tiny and not circular, as the images on this site might suggest. The sound quality delivered was brilliant though and therefore I have been very satisfied with my purchase.
The only thing I should have done differently is buy the two metre cable instead of the one metre. The rear of my TV is a mass of inter-twining cables and whilst it's generally advisable to keep them short, the problem then becomes curving them around into the right position. I am now limited to where I can position my HD box and by necessity it's much nearer to the amplifier than it is to the television set. But never mind - just be mindful to buy a slightly longer length lead than you'll probably need.
Buy with confidence and you will surely enjoy the results. If unlike me you have surround sound, the results are sure to be amazing. But even with conventional two speaker Dolby stereo, you won't be disappointed.
We've delayed reviewing it for a few weeks, giving us the chance to listen to it using it both as a 'simple' radio tuner, and as a feed to provide hi-fi sound when using the tv for movies and such.
Overall sound quality is pretty good in all situations, cable feels solid, well made and feels like good value.
