TOSLINK® or optical cable is a fibre optic connection system. Most commonly used with audio equipment via a "digital optical" output socket whereby it carries a digital audio stream from devices such as CD, DVD, Blu-Ray players and modern Video GameCconsoles as well as TV's and TV Boxes to an A/V receiver such as Dolby® Surround Sound Systems that can decode the stream of audio and output this signal through a set of loudspeakers or home cinema kit, including most modern sound bars.
Since TOSLINK® uses fibre-optic cable, it is free from distortion caused by electrical or magnetic interference that an electrical cable would incur.
The result is an audio signal that is more defined, purer, as well as truer to the original recording.
