  • How is SPDIF connected to sound system?

    Is the NP9262 SPDIF port an "optical" or electrical connection? I am guessing it's optical.

    Is it sufficient to use a "3.5mm optic plug to Toslink fiber optic" cable to go between the Sager spdif port and a fiber optic Toslink female port on a sound system?

    Has anyone used this fiber optic connection cable? Thanks for your help.

    I have not been able to figure this out either! I can't find a toslink cable that will fit into my SPDIF jack. Is there such a thing, cause all I've seen are the jacks that fit the optical in on my receiver. I'd love a link to an online retailer if you know where I can get one!

      Try Monoprice.com, they have loads of quality cables at very reasonable prices. They may have what you're looking for.
