Digital Optical Audio uses polished optical terminations and optical fiber to transfer digital signals through pulsating light. The Belkin PureAV AV20000-12 uses fiber immune to all forms of EM/RF interference, providing superior sonic accuracy and a more detailed, natural sound. Ordinary optical cables can compromise your audio performance by using lower-grade, optical-fiber materials, and hot-plate termination of the fiber, rather than polishing. This can result in signal loss that causes poor clarity, loss of definition, and sound that is not truly accurate. The Belkin PureAV AV20000-12 uses the highest-quality materials to enhance your digital surround sound experience.

Using superior-grade optical fiber to deliver better clarity and a more natural sound from your digital audio video components, the Belkin PureAV AV20000-12 is a great solution for DTS and Dolby Digital surround sound.

  • newegg Superior-grade Optical Fiber The Belkin PureAV AV20000-12 uses superior-grade optical fiber so you can get better audio clarity and a more natural-sounding midrange.

4 out of 5 eggsThey aren't perfect but ok

Pros: 1. Quality materials
2. Good transmission

Cons: 1. Heavy
2. Strange reactions using other fiber optic cables

Other Thoughts: I loved these when I first bought them, however as time passed I realized they are just way to heavy for a regular optical port. Also I couldn't get them into my add-on spdif bracket from my ASUS motherboard because it hit the pc case frame. Very annoying. I mixed these with another type of fiber optic cable and experienced drop outs in digital audio, VERY VERY STRANGE. I took them out completely and now all is well. I am unsure whether to praise this product or look at it's many faults.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: They are the best, and although this company stinks with making other stuff like usb hubs they make good cables.

Cons: By this company, they can't even make usb hubs work right!

Other Thoughts: I would buy these again, and I will. Cheap and effective highly competitive pricing and very good. I am mad they can't create hubs that don't short out or cause all kinds of problems for me.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: I love that this is a 12' fiber optic cable. I had a 6' but it just wouldn't reach to my HD TV on a swivel wall bracket. I have had an issue or two with my LG TV not putting out the right digital signal while watching a DVD or BR but I don't blame the cable as you can go to a TV station and it works just fine.

Cons: None so far, great length.

5 out of 5 eggsGood cables!

Pros: I've had these cables for 7 months now and haven't had a single problem with them other than video card HDMI sound causing some insane amount of resistance to other sources of audio. I don't understand this, to be honest. But that's not due to the cables!

Cons: What perplexes me is the lack of some sort of securing device, and I'm not sure if it's the cables themselves or the entire standard for Digital Optical audio, but I find it rather obnoxious.
If anything gets knocked around behind my computer there is a high chance the cable will just plop out of the socket which is pathetic.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cable

Pros: Great solid cable. The cable is thick with solid toslink connectors on both ends. Not flimsy at all like some other optical cables.

Cons: none. I want to think the price is too high, but I just don't like paying money for most things. Actually a great deal for a 12ft cable.

Other Thoughts: I have a home theater PC setup. Previously, I had been using HDMI to my TV for sound, but also wanted a direct connection to my receiver for audio e.g. music. I had originally just run long RCA cables off the speakers jack. However, the sound had a lot of interference from being next to electrical wires and various boxes. I bought this cable to fix that. As expected the optical cable gives perfect sound with no interference.

5 out of 5 eggsPremium Quality at a Rock Bottom Price

Pros: It worked as expected, the connector protects the delicate fiber well, even the big, gray, stress relieving boot it made of dense silicone-like plastic so it's flexible if needed.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I had to replace a cheaper optical cable for my sound system after i snapped the fiber tip. Stupid mistake, but in all fairness, that cable has lasted me about 6 years, and 5 moves! Belkin makes some quality cables for pretty much everything, this was no exception! An added plus is the 12' length, i am developing my home theater system into a rack mount soon, so having some sliding room on the optical cable means i may get away with putting rails on my amp allowing me easy access to the rear hookups.

Did i mention that Worst Buy wanted $70 for a 6' Monster? I know some folks in that retail market, and it's not uncommon for a 400% markup in the AV accessories since they know people bought the brand new TV and 7.1 sound system, they still have to hook it up!

Thanks for keeping the big box stores honest Newegg!

4 out of 5 eggsOK Cable

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: Connector on one end is slightly malformed and hence does not "snap" into one of my components as it should so minus one egg for that.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again because Belkin has a good reputation.
