Default Some decent optical digital (toslink) cable


I am currently planning to hook up my iMac with its optical out (i.e. toslink) to some dac. But which cable to get (no, not the snake oil one)?

Any recommendations? How do I seperate bad from good cables?

What is the maximum recommended length?

These question have surely been answered a 1000 times - but if simply did not find it

Hello! Try the Chord Co. , it worth!! Among the best that exist in the digital world of cables, very musical and spacious sound, wiht much warmth and naturalness.
Also consider the digital cables from Furutech.

Parts Express has some real glass toslink cables with metal ends for a really good price. Not a bad sounding toslink at all.
