If you're wondering how to use your standard optical digital cable — Toslink connections at both ends — with your computer's minijack optical output, AudioQuest's Toslink-to-mini-optical adapter is a great solution. It allows for a step-down from the standard Toslink plug to a mini plug that fits the 3.5mm mini-optical jack available on many computers — probably the most common example is the dual-purpose headphone jack on MacBook® and iMac® models. This adapter makes it easy to connect an outboard DAC so you can enjoy much better sound from the music on your computer. Warranty: 5 years.
Average Customer Review(s):
It works perfectly as expected
Fits well with any good toslink cable, found it snapped in place and felt like a solid connection unlikely to fall apart.
Pros: allows you to repurpose optical cables for s/pdif connections
Cons: there are mini to toslink cables for this purpose, which of course are minimally more simple
Toslink Mini Adapter: The Audioquest Toslink Mini Adapter converts a standard full-size toslink connector to a 3.5mm mini-toslink connector, used on many portable audio devices and on some computer.

Needed it to connect my MAC mini to a NAD amplifier. [ PHILIP Dec 23, 2016 ]
really was in a hurry, maybe there were more economic some where else [ alex J cuadrado Nov 01, 2016 ]
Allows me to output from my iMac mini headphone jack (which supports optical digital) to Toslink/optical cable to my DAC. I have been using USB. Using optical digital (instead of USB) will increase my digital audio quality from 96KHz to 192KHz. At least that's what my DAC manual says.... With my Sennheiser HD 600 headphones, I would expect to hear the difference. We'll see. If yes, the best $8 I ever spent. :-) Heck, it's AudioQuest. Yay, iMac, yay AudioQuest, yay Crutchfield.
