Monster Cable 400dfo
Optical digital audio cable (1 meter/3.3 ft.)
Our take on the Monster Cable 400dfo by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Optical connections are the most common type of digital audio hookup on today's gear. Monster Cable® 400dfo optical cables ensure that you'll hear every bit of performance from your CD/DVD player or cable/satellite receiver.
Each 400dfo cable has a specially tuned optical fiber and precision polished fiber terminations to minimize internal reflections and signal dispersion. This provides more accurate signal transfer for sound that's more detailed and dynamic. Monster's InsuLight jacket helps minimize time distortion caused by digital "jitter" a common problem with poorly constructed optical cables.
Since an optical cable carries signals as pulses of light rather than as a stream of electrons, it is virtually impervious to magnetic or electrical interference.
Great Fiber Optic Cable. Excellent Build Quality. Solid Terminations on each end.
