    Hi

    Don't know much about optical/toslink cables.
    I'm assuming I can connect the s/pdif output from my pc straight into the digital input of my dac?

    If yes, then any advice on what type of connections I should use.
    Does the s/pdif go straight into the digital optical (toslink?) input of the dac? Or into the digital co-axial rca input connectors?

    I would need to get a cable approx. 7m long? Any recommendations? Not too bothered about paying silly money for anything high-end, just something reasonable to listen to internet radio

    cheers

    S/PDIF (Sony / Philips digital interface) can be copper (RCA Phono or jack plug) or optical TOSLink or even optical minijack.

    If you are looking for standard TOS-TOS then we have this one at 6m:-

    You can also extend them using joiners.
