Long One

Written By Alicia, Marquette, Mi on Wednesday, June 15, 2005

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great quality, funcionality and look. Hard outside shielding is though. It's 10 feet long and that's more than plenty for most of us. Transfers digital audio perfectly with no loss of highs or lows.

This is a no compromises, heavy duty, made to look good while doing it all for you kind of cable. Worth the money even if you don't use it on your DVD player.

Awesome upgrade

Written By Doug, Phoenix, AZ on Monday, April 11, 2005

This is a terrific upgrade for your 5.1 surround, you can here just about everything (not to mention it looks sweet). It improves your bass and it be disturbed by interference. The cable is rather long (don't know if thats a bad thing) for my reqirements seeing that my Xbox is but three feet from my receiver. It works great with Halo 2 and it get my best rating.

Precision Terminated Fiber Optic Connector: Delivers maximum digital signal with a higher degree of accuracy.

Rubber Finger Grips: Makes it easier to grab and plug in the cable into your XBOX.

Heavy-Duty Body Construction: Prevents damage to the precision fiber.

Dual Strain Relief: Internal and external strain reliefs prevent damage from repeated setup and tear down of your XBOX.

Heavy-Duty MonsterHide Outer Protective Jacket: Nylon green mesh jacket provides greater durability and an ultra cool look.

Extra Low-Loss Optical Fiber: Provides low dispersion and highest signal strength. The fiber is specially tuned and ensures maximum signal transfer while reducing internal reflections that cause jitter and time distortion.

XBOX Optical to Stereo Sub-Mini Adapter: This adapter allows you to hook the XBOX console to a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver and upgrade your sound to Dolby Digital. Note: You must use Monster's Gamelink 200 X, 300 X, or 400X cable because the adapter plugs into these cables.
