I bought two digital audio cables and a 3-way digital audio selector switch from eMaxland. The cables worked fine, no complaints, there.

The switch is so cheap it doesn't even have "Made In China" printed on it. I have several digital audio cables. Some of them don't fit into the switches ports. The cables I bought from emaxland fit fine. The switch didn't work. Rather, I should say only one of the three ports carried a signal from my components to my headphones. (PS3, Apple Mac Mini, headphones with mic) I contacted customer support and they offered to send a replacement. The switch is so cheap I didn't have to return the defective unit. Name 3 other products sold at Amazon where you don't have to return a defective product when getting a replacement. Replacement switch works. Shipping from US takes a long time. While waiting for my replacement I found this switch at another site for $9.99. For $47.99 you can get a local audio/video custom installer to get you a digital audio switch.

At $15.99 it would be an amazing deal if it worked. However, the device simply didn't. The plugs weren't very tight and the device worked only after a fair bit of jiggling the connections. Once you turn the dial and then turn it back, it would lose the signal completely and you'd have to jiggle the connections again. It gets annoying real fast.

Emaxland's return policy isn't listed on Amazon's website so I'm not even sure what their return policy is. I certainly don't want to waste any more money on this crummy product by calling and then paying for return shipping.

You might be lucky like the previous two reviewers but be prepared to add one more piece of junk to the landfill.

I'm sad to say that Amazon has failed to assist me in the procedure for returning a defective item. I've followed the recommendations on the site and have only received useless information from one of the customer service representatives instead of getting the information needed.

The site seems to have good products but because of how Amazon dealt with one bad one they've lost my business.

As this device can switch anything TOSLINK, I use it in the studio to switch my first bank of ADATs in and out. Previous to this, I had to gently pull the cable from behind my computer, which was a problem. If your inputs are always active, like mine (my device is constantly searching for a digital input, and reverts to analog when the signal is absent), then loud damaging distortion can wreak havoc on your system. Such distortion is still an issue with this device (anything that will physically unplug a live digital source), however the connector inside this switch is spring loaded, so a smooth and quick source change can result in much less distortion. For me, the distortion was shorting out my usb hard drive, and loud pops occurred on the channels in question, but now that is no longer the case. I was surprised by the size of it, but you mount it on the side of your cabinet and it is a very easily accessible, easy to use part of your system. No complaints here, it does what you want. And yeah, plugging and unplugging live digital sources isn't a good idea in general, but if you must, this thing is a good way to go. Be sure to keep your speaker volume at a minimum just in case.

Got the product on time and as described.
Does not work. Checked cabling etc.
Sound is completely lost through switch.
Cracked and popped once then never worked again.
No sound goes through switch. Verified all cabling was sound.
Poor product. Do not recommend this as it is unfortunately a giant paperweight...

This optical cable "splitter" was a great find and eliminated the need to access the back of the T.V. to switch the optical cable from one component to the next with most components only having a single optical cable connection. It was a pain to switch from either the HD cable box to the PS3 when I wanted to watch Blue-Ray videos, when I wanted the best sound.
This product was suggested by an electronics store and I was surprized that it could only be found/purchased over the internet (in Canada anyway). I'm surprized that it was available at any local electronics store
I'm sure that many people have the same problem I did.
This is a great solution and very affordable.

Bought this digital audio splitter because I have only one input on my receiver and three devices that output the high-quality signal. Unfortunately, it didn't work as I had hoped. Don't think it's the splitter's fault, however. For some reason, only the signal from the cable box will pass through it. Sound from the Apple TV and blu-ray players doesn't pass through the splitter (not enough power in those units?) so it doesn't suit my needs. Again, I don't think it's the splitter, just something about how all audio output is not equally from device to device.

This product works as promised.

My problem with it is the design; the way the optical cables go into the unit. 3 from one side and one from the other. Makes for a real mess of cables and limits where you can put the switch to keep it out of the way but still have access to use it.

I'm glad it was cheap as it does work and can be replaced eventually with something more elegant.
