    Hello

    How long can I run an optical digital cable before signal degredation?

    Where can I buy optical digital cables that are longer than 2m, as I have not found anywhere yet! I am looking for about a 5m length if that is possible????

    All help appreciated.

    The QED optical cable is available in lengths up to 10m.

    I used CPC when I lived in the UK. Great company, stock almost everything.

    Try this for a higher quality 10m lead

    http://custom1.farnell.com/cpc/prod...CPC+Catalogue&category_name=&product_id=30532

    or this for a *BUDGET* :eek: 10m lead...

    They also have a connector to connect 2 leads together... Only costs 75p. Or you could by 95p for a gold plated one, which, being expensive would improve the optical conductivity ;)

    Sounds a bit dodgy to me though, this last one...
