toslink right-angle to mini right-angle cable info
« on: October 15, 2006, 06:53:02 PM »
I want to know were I can get a toslink right-angle to mini right-angle cable to go from my iriver to a V3. I see the a lot of people use the one they get from soundprofessionals.com. I seen some other places that people got them from but the posts on here where from like 03 and don't work any more. I want to know if there is any bater cables then the one thats comes from SP. Or dose any one know if I can get one made from kindcables. I don't see any on there page. I would be grateful for any info I can get.

I bought that cable from them a few weeks ago.  Works great, shipped quickly.

That's the cable I always used, same as the SP cable but less expensive.  I found it plenty reliable and robust, as long as I took reasonably good care of it.  I don't know of another cable with integrated right-angle toslink and mini connectors, and I searched long and hard.

If you want/need an uber-robust cable, consider Lifatech (only straight toslink connectors available, though):

How hard do you think it would be to make one. I have a friend that is good at making cables do you think it would be a hard cable for him to make. If you could find the parts. I have ra xlrs on my pre and how far past the xlr do you think that a toslink that is not ra would stick out. If I don't go with a ra toslink and go strate one how makes the most robust cable with the best sound.

Never done it, so...dunno.

I have ra xlrs on my pre and how far past the xlr do you think that a toslink that is not ra would stick out.

I've since sold all my straight toslink cables, so I can't measure.

If I don't go with a ra toslink and go strate one how makes the most robust cable with the best sound.

I've not seen a more robust cable than the Lifatech to which I linked previously.  As for best sound - it's a digital cable, simply transmitting 0s and 1s, so one cable should not produce a "better" sound than another (with the possible exception of jitter, but I think you'd need a really kick-ass playback system to hear the difference;  I know I can't hear the difference).

IME, yes.  I used one for a couple years with no problems, as have many others.

I couldnt agree more, i owned one of these and the SP version, they BOTH worked just as well, which was flawlessly

i only liked the SP version more because it was a shorter length than the cheapy i had, but like Brian said, these are rock solid :) just take extreme care w/ any optical cable.....
