The cable is well made. The plug will fit harmoniously into the corresponding sockets on the TV / receiver and the cable itself makes a thoroughly quality impression. It seemed a little "wobbly" before, but this is the natural condition of an optical cable.
I find it a little sad that the jacket is not something stable. The last cable from AmazonBasics was a HDMI cable and that was processed very rigid. In an optical cable like this one I would have found almost makes more sense because a kink in this cable very quickly leads but to performance losses.
But so be it. The cable can be laid well and served its purpose.
Tonal I can not say anything bad. It is worse than normal, usually supplied HDMI cable in any case that the picture and sound transfers.
Since I use the cable instead of HDMI, the sound comes to me prior total and rich bass-heavy. But in general I can not detect any loss of quality.
And all I can expect from a cable in this price region. My expectations were exceeded.
Because when I look at what cost such a cable in the local electrical retailers, makes me sick.
There you pay for certainly not better cable in comparable length happy times around the 30 euros. And there it is, you would not be stupid.
I buy now for some time only Cable AmazonBasics. From the value for this are simply unbeatable.
High-end I can not expect here, but for normal home theater users this is all more than fine.
Strong buy recommendation!
