DVD Players

An optical cable can be utilized to exchange a sound from one segment, like DVD player, to another segment, for example a receiver. Or on the other hand, now and again, an optical cable may have the capacity to specifically connect to a TV, assuming that TV had an optical port.

CD Players

People who need astounding sound from a CD player may attach it to a receiver with a digital optical cable. Since optical cables are perfect at recreating a signal, and barely any transfer is lost in the exchange, they make exceptional solutions for generating great sound.

Portable Devices

Some portable gadgets are equipped for transferring data to another segment through digital optical cable. So on the occasion when you want to play music through digital receiver, you could interface the two parts with a digital optical cable.

Surround Sound/Home Theatre

Many high-quality sound systems use a digital optical cable to connect a subwoofer to a receiver. This makes the sound quality getting through the subwoofer significantly higher than it would be comparing to only connection with speaker wire.

Game Consoles
