5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong after 17 months

Pros: No sound quality loss
Passes all audio codecs through (Dolby Digital, etc)
Quality product

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I thought I would give an updated review of this product as I have had this for approximately 17 months now and this optical switch is just amazing. It still works great and it has been abused over the past year and a half.

Let me explain my setup: I currently have my PC and XBOX 360 connected to it. I then have the out channel going to my Astro A50 headset, I then have the ASTRO A50 out channel going to my logitech Z5500 surround sound. I have had this setup for the past 17 months and never once had an issue when switching back and forth. I still get my Dolby Digital Surround Sound to my Z5500's and I can still hear footprints and positions while gaming on my Astro A50. There is no distortion or audio quality loss with this optical switcher!

Honestly, if you want a quality, affordable optical audio switcher, look no further. Even if mine broke tomorrow I would buy a second one in a heartbeat. It is well worth money!

1 out of 5 eggsworked until the warranty expired

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, one issue

Pros: Works as advertised. allows 4 optical devices to be switched with one output. This was a great solution for my TV setup since I am using a soundbar with just one optical input for audio. I didn't want to purchase another receiver for this room and the switcher easily allows me to change the source from my satellite box to my bluray player, etc. I also likes the manual input switch on the unit in addition to the remote.

Cons: The included remote is tiny, about half the size of a credit card, and a little flimsy. We will see if it breaks first or if i can manage to lose it first. The other main issue is the glaringly bright blue LED to denote which port is active. This thing is bright! I am talking the Eye of Sauron here, bright. A little piece of electrical tape did the trick for me.

Other Thoughts: a little pricey but one of the few solutions out there for my needs.

5 out of 5 eggsDefective at first but with RMA replacement, new one works fine

Pros: Easy to install and hookup.
Works flawlessly
All inputed devices work with a simple button press on the remote
Fast RMA replacement of defective device

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Upon recieving the item in the mail it worked fine initially. However after several days I noticed it was no longer showing any optical audio inputs on the device but was still powering up just fine. It was at that point I knew it was defective and returned it via RMA to Newegg. Newegg was quick to replace the item and shipped it to me very quickly. However with my new device, it works flawlessly and it does everything it should do without any issues. Very happy with my purchase and kudos to Newegg for quick replacement and quick shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality

Pros: No loss of sound quality at all. Was also skeptical since there were no reviews anywhere for this but took a chance. I really did not want the manual knob optical switcher. I'm a big movie enthusiest with a theater in my house so I only go with the best of the best when it comes to audio/video. This is great and would highly recommend to anybody

Cons: lights are bright. Ended up moving it out of sight and came up with a better idea of a setup than I origionally had

Other Thoughts: No sound delay or loss of audio quality. Very good for the money

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product!!

Pros: Small!
Works flawlessly
No sound quality loss that I can hear
Well priced for what it does.
4 inputs.

Cons: I have none

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent product! I was pretty nervous purchasing it since it didn't have any reviews and it was pretty much the ONLY digital optical cable switcher that was not an actual switch you had to turn.

I have tested all 4 ports and they all sound excellent. I haven't had any sound loss issues. I am running a 6 foot cable into it and 2 3 foot cables out of it.

The remote control is pretty small and could get lost easy but that's not a big issue.

Overall excellent product!!
