AudioQuest OPTFOR0.75M overview

  • 1Description

The AudioQuest Forest Toslink to 3.5mm Mini Optical Digital Audio Cable (2.46') is designed to reduce distortion in your digital audio signal. To achieve this, the cable utilizes low-dispersion fiber with precision-polished fiber ends. Instead of using a long 1.0mm diameter optical fiber which has impurities, imperfections, and causes the light to bend, disperse and transfer at different optical angles, this cable uses hundreds of smaller fibers in a 1.0mm diameter bundle. Using smaller fibers limits the amount of bend and dispersion within the bundle so that more of the light arrives coherently at the decoder with better time alignment. This reduces dispersion, jitter timing errors, and the amount of signal loss at the digital-to-conversion stage. The improved coherency and timing of the light translates to a better digital conversion and more accurate sounding audio.

    AudioQuest OPTFOR0.75M reviews

    Forest Toslink to 3.5mm Mini Optical Digital Audio Cable (2.46') is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Digital done right ! Use to connect my iMac with Dynaudio Xeo2 speakers. iMac's headphone jack actually doubles with optical digital audio output (minijack). Rather than using regular audio connection, Toslink allows to benefit from the Dynaudio's digital circuits, which combination eventually does produce an unbelievable sound. This cable is not a weak link here. The end result is what I wanted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toslink Cable works great! I bought this cable because the el Cheapo cable that I purchased * appeared to be causing my Apple Airport Express to pause while streaming music. The Audioquest Forest cable solved the problem. No pauses or time outs have occurred since I installed the new cable. it was well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement in sound quality This is my first optical cable ever. I have no other point of comparison to other similar products. I hooked the 3.5mm end of the cable in the analog headphone/optical line out of my Apple iMac and connected the other end to my AudioEngine D1 DAC. Then, I played an HD song, Cream's N.S.U. with 24-bit 192KHz resolution, and I heard things that I had never heard from that record before. The stereo image is amazing. You really hear how the recording engineer mixed the record. The bass is panned slightly on the right side of the stereo image while the drums and guitars are panned slightly to the left. Also for vocals, Clapton is slightly panned on the right and Bruce is panned slightly on the left. My DAC is also a USB DAC. When I played the same song using USB, the resolution had to drop to 96KHz and I did not hear those subtle differences. Highly recommended.
