    Hi,
    Does anyone know if it's possible to purchase wall plates (like those used by telephones and RJ45 network cabling) for optical/toslink wiring.
    I have a separates hi-fi on one side of the room, and a comp sndcard with optical output on the other, which quite often returns with me to uni. I don't really want a wire trailing along the floor and would just prefer to be able to plug and unplug a wire between sndcard and wallplate.

    Thanks in advance.

    The simple solution is to have the cable run into your wall and have blank plates with holes in to put the cable through.

    It's cheaper to do, and gives better sound quality.

    Other than that I think you'd struggle to find a TosLink wall panel.

    i did something simular for my kitchen recently,
    the range of satin sockets i chose didnt do Rj45 outlets, so i bought a telephone slave unit ans used the cut out which was the right size and fixed a krone rj45 unit to the back using grip fill. ( the S*it to a blanket glue used by my borther and other carpet fitters to hold down gripper rods). from the front it looks like a std chrome face plate for Rj45.

    did the same for a combined SKY and TV outlet too. by usinf a std white ones guts and a satin chrome dual tv airea lfornt plate.

    anything is possible with a little imagination and some glue.

    I guess even a chrome TOSlink faceplate could be made if you have the time.

    cheers
