AudioQuest designed the Cinnamon OptiLink to provide a distortion-free connection between your digital audio components — CD players, Blu-ray or DVD players — to A/V receivers, DACs, and even some sound bars. The core of the Cinnamon is a finely polished, low-distortion polymer fiber conductor that minimizes signal loss and jitter (time-based distortion). The cable has full-size Toslink connectors at each end, reinforced by a brass ferrule, which helps ensure ideal light transmission for the highest quality sound.

Optical cables carry signals as pulses of light rather than a stream of electrons, so they are virtually impervious to magnetic or electrical interference. Whether you're feeding stereo music to a DAC or Dolby® Digital surround sound to your receiver, the optical cable is an important and often overlooked link in the signal chain. The quality of your cable matters.

Product Highlights:

  • length: 5 meter (16.4 ft.)
  • low-jitter design
  • finely-polished polymer fiber conductor
  • full-size Toslink connectors with brass ferrule plugs for a snug, secure fit
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have just purchased a new home theater. I selected this cable after a short consultation with a nice person in Crutchfield. He said that choosing the right cable for the job is highly important, and that I should select a cable of a high quality. The person who installed my home theater told me the same thing. I like the sound of my audio system, and I assume it's also as a result of this cable. So far - I really love it.

Pros: light, high quality, aesthetic

Cons: none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am a skeptical consumer and pride myself on not falling for "gimmicks." I had an all glass toslink cable that I thought was OK. I was willing to take a chance on this Cinnamon cable on the hope of improved dynamics and clarity from my CD player to my Sony STR-DN840 mid level receiver. I selected a CD I was already impressed with for its live performance and was pleased with what I was hearing that I didn't before coming through my 7.2 speaker setup and the improvement I heard through the receiver's headphone jack to closed headphones. Yes, this cable IS better than standard quality and is well worth the price.

Pros: clearer perceived dynamics and clarity, slightly even better with closed headphones through my receiver

Cons: none at all

It works

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Using one to replace older longer cable between a Marantz transport and a Dac*It.

It's in a price range I'm comfortable with and works well for me!

Pros: Seems to be a quality I/C for the $$ spent.

Cons: None apparent to my ear.

Product Research


Audioquest OptiLink-Cinnamon Series Optical Cable: Audioquest OptiLink-Cinnamon optical (toslink) cables feature a thoroughly engineered, finely polished synthetic polymer fiber conductor to minimize signal loss and jitter (time-based distortion). The plug's brass ferrule also contributes to ideal light transmission and the highest quality sound. The conductor is surrounded by flexible black PVC with a black and red nylon braid. Each connector has a clear plastic protector that should be removed before use. The plug is shaped so that it will only fit one way into the component's Toslink connector.
