About the AudioQuest Forest OptiLink

AudioQuest designed their Forest OptiLink cable for those seeking high performance on a budget. Offering upgraded construction and performance compared to AQ's entry-level Pearl series, Forest provide a distortion-free connection between digital audio source components — CD players, Blu-ray or DVD players — and A/V receivers, DACs, and even some sound bars.

AudioQuest designed their Forest OptiLink cable for those seeking high performance on a budget. Offering upgraded construction and performance compared to AQ's entry-level Pearl series, Forest provide a distortion-free connection between digital audio source components — CD players, Blu-ray or DVD players — and A/V receivers, DACs, and even some sound bars.

The core of the Forest is a single 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. Unlike cables made of wire which require some type of metal connector to transfer the signal between components, in an optical cable, the very tip of the connector is the fiber itself, and it requires special polishing to reduce light refractions.

Features

Audioquest OptiLink-Forest Series Optical Cable: Audioquest OptiLink-Forest optical (toslink) cables feature a thoroughly engineered, finely polished 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 a black & green flexible PVC jacket. 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.

Q
Can I use this cable to go from Android phone to back of Dac Magic Plus to play flac files?

This specific cable is an optical cable. It only supports fiber optic input/output. No it will not work. However audio quest does make the cable you are looking for.
[ Perry H.  Dec 07, 2020 ]
A
Only if your phone has an optical output. Also known as a Toslink connection.
[ Brad  Dec 07, 2020 ]
Q
Simple question I hope. I bought a pair of Peachtree M24 powered speakers for my tv and I am using RCAs currently. Will a optical cable improve the sound ? Also are they all standard one size connectors that fit the tv and the active speaker ?

RCA is analog. Optical is digital and requires a DAC, so the answer is, "it depends on the quality of the DAC inside the M24's and inside the TV" Almost certainly, the answer is YES, optical will be better into your M24s. You should test both connections yourself.
[ HOYT  Nov 29, 2020 ]

It can improve the sound. The optical connector are standard connectors, it's the same in the speaker and the tv.
