Our take on the AudioQuest Vodka OptiLink
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.

Audioquest OptiLink-Vodka Series Optical Cable:
Audioquest OptiLink-Vodka optical (toslink) cables feature 217 narrow-aperture
synthetic fibers for its conductor in order to minimize signal loss and jitter
(time-based distortion). Precision polished fiber ends also contribute to ideal
light transmission and the highest quality sound. The conductor is surrounded by
flexible black PVC with a black and blue 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.
