DENON AVR1601 OPTICAL INPUT WILL NOT TAKE TOSLINK CABLE

My toslink optical cable is too big for my rear optical input. I think it was an earlier type. It has a removable plug for access. Is there an adapter for this or should I just try to file the sides of the cable to make it fit in the hole?

SOURCE: What is the best way to attach a Sony SCD CE595 CD

That is correct. Digital connections through some models of SACD players are via "firewire", otherwise it is analog output. There are no optical connections.

The shortest pair of RCA cables, or even component video cable as an alternative will work.

SOURCE: Hi. I've got a Denon AVR-1907

Have you considered your source may be the problem if the receiver isn't?

You say setup is correct. If so it would work, no?

Can't connect Digital Optical Audio cable to receiver


The TOSLINK optical connector is almost aquare and should be the same on both blue-ray and on the receiver. There are 4 orientation you can try and only one fits. Blue-ray can have the connector installed rotated, but it should be the same connector.

Looking at the cable at Amazon I can see that it is the correct cable. If it really doesn't fit, maybe you have damaged cable or damaged connector. Try the other end of the cable and/or other optical input on the receiver.
BTW there is also combined analog/optical jack connector. It looks like normal jack socket, but accepts also optical signal. But this is not called Toslink and usually is not used in home theatre devices.

Sony STR-DE925 auto-decode has worked fine for years. All DVD/PS3/Cable is attached to TV via HDMI and inbound audio from HDTV is optical fiber (TOSLINK). Up until today, this has worked perfectly, i.e.,...


OK, so with more troubleshooting, I was able to eliminate the problem with my DE925. It was actually the Vizio HDTV that was causing the problem, as I decided to route the optical audio from my DVD and PS3 directly to the same TOSLINK port on the DE925 and auto-decode worked. It was not the fiber-op cables either. This HDTV was a less-expensive 720p 32" model anyway, so I am not too concerned with the optical out working on it as I can run up to four TOSLINK connections in to the receiver.

What is the best way to attach a Sony SCD CE595 CD player SACD to a Denon AVR 2105 Receiver. I thought the optical input would be best but according to a web posting, toslink does not support SACD


That is correct. Digital connections through some models of SACD players are via "firewire", otherwise it is analog output. There are no optical connections.

The shortest pair of RCA cables, or even component video cable as an alternative will work.

My Denon AVR-5800's optical (toslink) inputs no longer work. My Tivo, DVD player, HD DVD player, etc. does not produce sound so I know it's not the toslink cables. I've configured the assignments...


Press the input mode on the front of the unit to select auto while on the input you want to use if this is does not work you will need repair on the unit

Different sound levels dvd and cable hdtv yamaha htr-6130


Well, first of all, the method you are using is the lowest quality. You should upgrade to a toslink(digital optical cable) or a digital RCA cable. The toslink is the best all around. But it is normal for some devices to have higher sound output than others.

Connecting Sony BDP S550 Blu-ray player to my Denon 3802 receiver.


The only thing you need is an optical audio cable (toslink) connecting the Blu-ray blayer with one of the three inputs on the AVR3802. Then assign this input in the system menu to the input you like (e. g. DVD) and that should be it. The Receiver automatically detects the sound format from the Blu-ray and changes from stereo to DTS, DD5.1, 7.1 or whatever.

depends what audio outputs you have on the sky box,analogue (two phono usually red for right channel and white left channel)in which case just use phono leads to the phono inputs,Optical(toslink),connect an optical cable from the output to the optical input on the dvd channel of the pioneer,coaxial (spdif)connect to spdif input on the laser disk input of the pioneer,dont connect to the attenuated spdif.In the unlikeley event of the sky box not having any audio outputs,just use the outputs from the tv to the pioneer.The optical digital input gives the best quality on the vsa eo6

Denon AVR587 Setup


red/white/yellow = composite
red/green/blue= component video cables + audio cables needed

the red/white= stereo audio

the denon 587 has 2 optical (toslink) inputs and 2 digital coax. These are surround sound cables basically, it's the only way to get true 5.1 dolby or dts.

connect cable box, and the samsung to the sony using hdmi. then connect the cable box and the samsung to the denon receiver with optical cable. And that's it.
