AudioQuest Cinnamon OptiLink
Toslink-to-mini-optical digital audio cable (5 meters/16.4 feet)
Our take on the AudioQuest Cinnamon OptiLink by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
If you're wondering how to get a digital audio signal from your computer's mini-optical output to the full-sized Toslink optical input on your A/V receiver or DAC, AudioQuest's Cinnamon Toslink-to-mini-optical cable is a high-quality solution. This cable is a great choice for use with the 3.5mm dual-purpose headphone jack found on MacBook® and iMac® models. The core of the Cinnamon is a finely polished, low-distortion polymer fiber conductor that minimizes signal loss and jitter (time-based distortion).
I use this between my tv and B&W A7. I think I have pretty discerning ear, and have so far been nothing but happy with the sound quality this provides.

Audioquest OptiLink-Cinnamon Series Optical-to-3.5mm Cable: Audioquest OptiLink-Forest optical-to-3.5mm 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.

Why did you buy this?
have the forest wanted to see if the cinnamon was better [ Jeffrey Aug 10, 2016 ]
Returned AQ 703CIUSB5 on order 42584918 as it wasn't the correct cable for my application. The AQ Optilink is the correct cable. I've had good results from AQ cables before. [ John M. Apr 18, 2016 ]
