AudioQuest Cinnamon OptiLink
Optical digital audio cable (1.5 meters/5 feet)
Our take on the AudioQuest Cinnamon OptiLink by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
AudioQuest designed the Cinnamon OptiLink to provide a distortion-free connection between your digital audio components — CD players, Blu-ray or DVD players — to A/V receivers, DACs, and even some sound bars. The core of the Cinnamon is a 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. 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.
High quality shows... Unlike convential electrical signals sent down a high quality copper line, the slightest imperfections due to twists and turns aloing the optical fiber path can result in lost data - if you want a 'perfect' signal, this cable is worth getting.

AudioQuest Cinnamon OptiLink Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Audioquest OptiLink-Cinnamon Series Optical Cable: Audioquest OptiLink-Cinnamon optical (Toslink) cables feature a thoroughly engineered, finely polished synthetic 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 flexible black PVC with a black and red 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.
