If you have a serious surround sound or 2-channel audio setup, AudioQuest's high-performance Vodka OptiLink will provide a distortion-free connection between your digital audio components — CD players, Blu-ray or DVD players, satellite or cable TV boxes — to A/V receivers, DACs, and even some sound bars. Vodka uses 217 narrow-aperture synthetic fibers to carry the signal, which minimizes 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.
