Short 90-deg Toslink to MiniPlug, Toslink to Toslink or MiniPlug to MiniPlug 2.2mm Jacket Optical Cable Super Polished on 0.3 micron film.
Digital audio cables for iBasso, iRiver, Sonosax SX DA-2 DAC, HeadRoom Portable Micro Amp, Cio MB-1, SONY HI-MD MZ-RH1 and other equipment. NEW 1300-cores (strands) fibers cable, 2.2mm diameter jacket High Transmissivity Optical Digital Audio Cable will play 24 bits audio with a 192 kHz sample rate ( 24/196). Precision termination, polished on 0.3 micron film, for low loss connection.
Here is a picture of how the cable looks like, partial view (about 3%) Magnification 400x
Number of fibers 1300 inside 1mm, each core diameter is 24.8-μm (microns), in comparison average human hair is about 90-μm
Advantages of small core fiber:
- Small cores significantly lowers (almost eliminate) "Modal Dispersion" in comparison to Standard Single core 1000-μm fiber.
What is dispersion?
It is a High Order Mode signal delay that is caused by light bouncing from side to side in the core fiber. The signal spreading in 24-μm fiber is much, much lower than the single core POF 1000-μm fiber. The smaller the fiber core the smaller the modal dispersion.
Modal Dispersion is not much of a problem with 16-bit low frequency (48kHz) audio but it starts to be noticeable already with 16bit/96kHz. At 24/96 modal dispersion causes the signal to fail in most Large (1mm) Single Core (SI) POF.
When adding high frequency to the equation, (in single large core fiber) the pulse modes that bounce from side to side arrive slower that the modes that travel through the centre of the core and causes the signal to fail.
- Bend Radius. With Small Core the bend radius is 1mm in comparison to the standard single core fiber requirement was more than 9mm. We can make a 90 degree permanent bend radius on this fibre, but that is not possible with Glass Toslink cables.
- Light weight, no need for heavy armored cables and/or extra protection vs. Glass Toslink Cable.
- Bend Radius 1mm
- Attenuation less than 0.6dB per meter @650nm.
- Numerical Aperture (N.A.) 0.5
- Supports 24/196 kHz signal
We have done cables for the following units :
AK100, iBasso DB2, FOSTEX HP P1, iQube V3, MyST1866, iBasso D12, xDuoo XD-01, E17, Leckerton UHA-6S iHP120, iHP140, Fiio X3, Cio MB-1, Sonosax SX DA-2 DAC, HeadRoom Portable Micro Amp, Cio MB-1, SONY HI-MD MZ-RH1 and more.
What we need to know:
- Distance "Center-to-Center" (c2c) (DO NOT ADD EXTRA LENGTH)
NOTE: We can measure the "Angle" from a picture. We have done many combinations and most likely know the angle. If not, we will contact you by email asking you to send us a picture of your setup, showing front ports (take a picture perpendicular to the ports).
For example when ordering you can provide information like:
- For AK100/Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII, Toslink to MiniPlug dia. 5mm - 21.6mm c2c 62.6deg.
- For AK100/xDuoo XD-01, Toslink to MiniPlug dia. 2.2mm - 3.6cm c2c 26deg.
