About the AudioQuest Forest OptiLink

Use AudioQuest's Forest Toslink-to-mini-optical cable to ensure accurate transfer of digital audio signals from your computer's mini-optical output to the full-sized Toslink optical input on your A/V receiver or DAC. This cable is a smart choice for use with the 3.5mm dual-purpose headphone jack found on MacBook® and iMac® models. The core of the Forest is a finely polished, low-distortion polymer fiber conductor that minimizes signal loss and jitter (time-based distortion).

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
Reputation for quality, and fast free delivery [ carl  Jul 30, 2018 ]
To connect a MAC mini to my headphone TOS input. [ PHILIP  Dec 23, 2016 ]
Mini mac to my sound system connection [ Israel  Oct 22, 2016 ]
I need to connect an Apple Airport express to my system. Bryce recommended this cable. [ Michael  Jan 19, 2016 ]
Replacement for older cable [ Randal  Jan 29, 2019 ]
Because I got a Blue Jean cable one and it did not work, it was poorly built and would not transmit sound continuously, it was more expensive to return and pay for shipping than what the refund would have been. I already had a shorter audioquest optical forest and it has always worked great. [ Omar  Apr 15, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

I have a cable box that has optical digital output but the cable from the receiver that I have that plugs into the cable box is a digital audio cable. Do you have an adapter or cable that is optical digital on one end (for the cable box) and is a female digital audio connection on the other end?
[ Mike  Dec 27, 2015 ]
1 answer
Hi, The only optical cables I've seen are either a male optical end or male toslink end like the cable shown in the picture. I don't have experience with a female optical end, but the technical folks at Crutchfield can answer that question for sure. Enjoy your music, RCB
