Just goto monoprice.com and order one that is long enough. Optical cables are pretty much all created equal as long as you aren't looking for cables 50ft and longer. Don't buy a $30 optical cable...ever. Monoprice's cables are of good quality and low price and many HT afficionados buy from monoprice.
Looking for a review of optical audio cables. Need to connect a digital cable box and a DVD player to a 7.1 surround sound receiver. Prices for 3 foot optical cables range from $.87 to over $30. Some listed as multicore, others don't specify. What do I need?
A previous review on CNET of HDMI cables was easy to find and helped me make an informed decision. Searched the CNET web site but could not find a review of optical cables.
