Digital Interconnects

Digital Interconnects

Digital interconnects provide an audio connection between your A/V receiver and your TV or converter. Unlike analog audio cables, which uses two separate wires to provide a left and right audio channel, a digital audio cable uses one wire to pass multiple channels of sound, meaning it can be used for Surround Sound.

TOSLINK (from Toshiba Link[2]) is a standardized optical fiber connector system.[3] 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 such as CD and DVD players, DAT recorders, computers, and modern video game consoles, to an AV receiver that can decode two channels of uncompressed lossless PCM audio or compressed 5.1/7.1 surround sound such as Dolby Digital Plus or DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. Unlike HDMI, TOSLINK does not have the bandwidth to carry the lossless versions of Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, or more than two channels of PCM audio.
