        It's cheap. It's just what I needed. It works! It's smaller than you might think so don't worry about it blocking any ports.

              Comments about Hosa Technology TOSlink Optical Female to Mini-TOSlink Male 3.5mm Adapter:

              I have the adapter plugged into the Analog/Optical audio-out jack of an Apple AirPort Express. A standard TOSLINK fiber optic cable runs between the adapter and an Audioengine 'D1' 24-bit DAC. The line output from the DAC is then connected to self-powered speakers. The adapter works as advertised, works great with the Apple AirPort Express.

                It's an ok patch when all you have is a toslink to toslink cable and you want to use a MacBook Pro for high def audiophile music through a good DAC/Amp combo. It's good enough to hold me over until I get a proper toslink to mini-plug glass cable from Silflex.

                                              Not too expensive and it does what it is supposed to. I use it to plug my surround sound system into my new imac with a mini optical out. Works like a charm.

                                                    Comments about Hosa Technology TOSlink Optical Female to Mini-TOSlink Male 3.5mm Adapter:

                                                    Takes the digital audio out from an iMac and adapts to TOSlink optical to go directly to optical input to my amplifier. Helpful that B&H carries this as the Apple stores (retail and e-tail) do not carry and if you have the optical cable already, you do not need to purchase a kit.
