So I needed a mini to Toslink optical cable to hook my computer to my receiver. I could have ordered one online but didn't want to wait. Best Buy didn't have any and Radio shack didn't even know what I was talking about, and didn't have any either. Walmart did though. I got a 6ft Philips with two mini optical adapters for each end. But I am just looking at the cable and wondering about it being totally clear. Its just a clear plastic tube with toslink connections on each end. It just seems to me that it could loose some light intensity over the length of the cable, which could cause a lose in dynamic range.
