    I need a TOSLINK cable 10 metre long but all I can find online are 5 metre at the longest.
    Can anyone point me in the direction of custom cable makers or is 10 metres just too long?

    thx

    Nope. 10m (for optical) is no problem. I think max length is about 100m.

    After a little more searching, found a few places that supply the 10m cable.
    thx

    I recently bought a 10 mtr toslink-toslink cable for £19.32 including delivery (very resonable I thought) follow link

    http://www.euronetwork.co.uk/acatalog/index.html

    they have different colours,legnths and varying ranges with regard to cost.
    Very happy with it - delivery was next day ect.

    Hope this helps:devil:
