AudioQuest Forest Optical 16m
16 metre length for the most demanding installations
At 16 metres long, this optical cable is ideal for the largest rooms, or even multi-room links. If you find your music source and amplifier a long distance apart, then this is a reliable way of connecting them – without losing audio quality.
A problem with conventional digital optical cables is that the fibres used can cause the transmitted light to splay. This can cause signal errors and, ultimately, a loss in bandwidth. The Audioquest Forest uses a special low-dispersion fibre for greater bandwidth and lower distortion. Using hundreds of smaller cores has the effect of focusing the light towards the end point, and although less light gets through, the light that does arrives in a much smaller time-envelope, again reducing distortion.
As with any good quality fibre optical cable, finely polished ends are crucial for an accurate signal transfer. The Audioquest Forest tops this off with high quality, high-grip plugs for a solid and long-lasting connection.
The AudioQuest Forest Optical is a perfect upgrade to any digital hi-fi or AV system.
