Quality meets great value, with the Chord Company C-lite digital optical cable.

Wide variety of plugs and cable lengths available

The new Chord C-lite optical cable is available fitted with a specially designed optical mini jack connection that's been purpose built for use with miniature players - there are adaptors but a properly terminated cable will work so much better, The C-lite range features mini jack to mini jack, mini jack to Toslink and Toslink all available in a wide range of sizes; from pocket size portable up to longer lengths for use in home systems.

High quality cable
The Chord C-lite uses a wide bandwidth PMA optical cable the ends of which have been polished to improve bandwidth. The central conductor is protected by an internal jacket of soft PVC which is then covered with a hard skin PVC outer jacket. This helps to prevent crush damage and is flexible enough to allow a tight bend radius without affecting the light carrier.

Ideal for connecting up your TV or other gear to a soundbar or AV receiver, the Chord Company C-lite makes light work of great sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed sound, well made cable. Compared this to Audioquest Pearl. I felt Pearl had a smoother presentation and slightly better low end but maybe slightly veiled(or darker) while the Chord was balanced had more air and detail. The Chord cable is not as flimsy as Pearl. Tbh cd have been happy with both.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but no review sought for the DacMagic 100? It is surprising that I have been invited to review the C-lite optical only. It was purchased with a Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100. I had to buy them by phone from the Southgate store because my local Kingston store could not find the DacMagic 100 that the website said that it had in stock. That added a delivery charge of around £8 to the cost as I could not use click and collect from Kingston, hence the overall 3 star rating. The sound from the DacMagic 100 with the C-lite is good but it lacks a bit of detail and bass. It is definitely not as good as the sound from my Rega CD player which uses the same Wolfson WM8742 chip. Both are connected to my Rega amp with high quality Rega interconnects. I will seek to upgrade if Rega brings out a new DAC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transforms my Sonos Connect Bought this optical interconnect to add an external DAC to my Sonos Connect. Wow, the sound quality upgrade blows my mind, the Sonos is now a genuine Hi-Fi source and I've got for the first time the infinite music libraries on tap to stream in quality that makes me happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for great sound! Very pleased that Richer Sounds had this item in stock as the only alternative was a couple of very cheap alternatives in John Lewis! Anyway, you get what you pay for and this cable didn't disappoint - it connects a Bluesound Node 2i to a Musical Fidelity Encore225 which is also connected by Chord's Shawline RCA cables. The Chord's C-Lite Optical cable connection enables the Encore's DAC as opposed to the Node's DAC and the difference in sound is quite noticeable, especially when using internet radio stations which broadcast on a higher bit rate. Quite amazing how a £40 optical cable can out-perform a £200 RCA cable, (depending on circumstances)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value. Bought this two weeks ago as a replacement for an older and much cheaper cable which had never fitted properly, no reassuring click when plugged in. There is no such problem with the Chord. There is also a noticeable improvement in the sound and before someone jumps down my throat with "a wire is just a wire!" this is an optical cable not a wire and it does make a difference, and it looks good too. If you're looking for an optical cable you can pay a lot less for one, but you won't get something that is both an item of quality and will last...possibly longer than the thing you plug it into.
