Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I speak of a Selector Toslink Optical Cable (NEW Digital Optical TOSlink Selector Switch Switcher HD) acquired on eBay. I never talked about shopping here in eBay because he thought everyone already knew and not worth. But, on the other hand, at least from the standpoint of product, may exist news, In addition to articles are also an indication for sellers.
The Selector Toslink Optical Cable is very useful for those who have a home theater receiver with optical inputs less than the amount of devices that use this entry. It also serves to connect the optical output of a single device for multiple receivers, although their use be, probably, Common less.
In recent years, seen a great evolution in devices present in a room TV. Televisions with the good old cathode ray tube are increasingly giving way to high-definition televisions with LCD screens and plasma. The DVD players are being replaced by Blu-ray players. Video games already support high definition. Only home theaters have not followed this evolution. Ok, yes they evolved, Now the receivers decode the formats DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD, present on Blu-ray. But the point is that, while the difference between resolutions 480 and 1080 lines are easily distinguished by most people, the difference between audio DTS and DTS-HD is only perceived by audio buffs. There is also a difference between 5.1 and 7.1 channels, but most people have rooms that were not designed for home theater or, no maximum, were designed to 5.1 channels, then this evolution just not being utilized.
That said, we can say that, for most people, os receivers de home theater de 5-10 years ago still perfectly meet the current needs. The biggest problem is eventually connectivity. Receivers usually have older plenty of stereo RCA inputs, one or two Toslink optical inputs and no HDMI input, since they do not exist at that time. Happily, most current devices (Blu-ray player, videogames, media players, etc.) count not only with HDMI output, but also with optical output. So, people can connect the HDMI directly to the TV and enjoy the high definition optical output directly to the home theater receiver. Not the best solution, clear. But it is perfectly acceptable, especially when you consider that the alternative is to invest in a new receiver, whose prices (unlike the TVs) not declined nearly nothing over the years, if not increased.
But even this solution is not free of problems. With only one or two optical inputs on older receivers, you can not exit by connecting all devices that have this type of output, including pay TV decoders (Sky, Net, etc.), videogames (Playstation 3, XBox 360, etc.), blu-ray players, media players (WDTV Live, etc.) and often the TV itself has an optical output that can be used to hear the sound of the internal tuner (including the digital TV) no home theater. How to connect more devices than the number of inputs on the receiver then?
That is where it comes the Selector Toslink Optical Cable (NEW Digital Optical TOSlink Selector Switch Switcher HD). With it you can connect up 3 devices with optical output (4 with the new model is now available with the same seller), and select which one should be used at that time. The input signal is routed to the selected output, where a second optical cable will lead to the receiver. The mechanical key is, therefore no remote control, but acceptable considering that the equipment does not change that we are witnessing so many times. The Selector Toslink Optical Cable is also totally passive, in other words, needs no external power. In my tests, same ligand 2 Selectors Optical Cable Toslink Series and totaling 9 meters of optical, signal yet arrived perfectly on receiver. Because this signal is digital, there is no degradation in audio quality using the Selector Toslink Optical Cable. And as the Selector Toslink Optical Cable e passivo, any input signal will be routed to the output, PCM seja, Dolby Digital, DTS, or any other standard that uses optical cable with transmission medium.
Or seller uses or ID e-hdtv and is located in Hialeah, Florida in the United States. At the moment he has 99,9% of positive, with a score of 7616. The price of Selector Toslink Optical Cable only $14,95 USD (U.S. dollars two), and shipping is done anywhere in the world. The freight is $11,95 USD pelo USPS First Class Mail International, that was what I used. This form of shipping has no tracking.

On the website of the Brazilian Post, This type of package is not scanned normally, then it will not appear on systems, although there are exceptions.
The submission was made in 21/03/2011, and got em 05/05/2011, about one month and a half after. The package was not taxed. The seller said the package as “CABLE SWITCHER”, checked the GIFT, and declared a value of only $3,20. The sender came as “Anderson Souza”, a name which may be a Brazilian, which is not unlikely, considering that the posting was made in Miami, Florida, where there are many Brazilians. Or maybe it was just a strategy of the seller not to draw the attention of IRS, and thus avoid a possible tax.
This is the second of these Selectors Optical Cable Toslink that adquiro, the first I bought on eBay a few 2 years and paid much more expensive. The two are visually identical, but can notice that the first quality was better, both finish, as the internal components which make manipulation of the key softer. As to its origin is China, the more likely it is that someone created this model Selector Toslink Optical Cable, and other companies copied the design, but not necessarily with the same quality, what is common there. Anyway, both Operat. When checking the announcement today to write the ad I noticed that the seller has changed the model of Selector Toslink Optical Cable you are selling. The new model has another format, is black instead of gray, tim e 4 entries instead of 3. In other words, anyone buying now will receive a Selector Toslink Optical Cable best of my, at least the number of entries (one more), since I know nothing about the quality of the new model.
