Questions tagged [toslink]

TOSLINK (from Toshiba Link) is a standardized optical fiber connection system. Also known generically as an "optical audio cable" or just "optical cable", its most common use is in consumer audio equipment (via a "digital optical" socket), where it carries a digital audio stream from components to an AV receiver that can decode audio.
