    I need an optical cable thats a little longer then 12'. I went out and got a 12' Acoustic Research cable and it wasn't long enough. Is 12' the longest readily available or what?

    Any help and possibly a link for purchase would be great.

    I purchased an 8 meter cable from "core-sound.com" about a year ago, cost was around $25. They make custom lengths at very reasonable prices, and shipping is available for about $5. I believe that 10 meters is the longest length available for a toslink cable.

    I am very pleased with the heavy-duty 10m toslink cables I purchased from www.mcmelectronics.com just search for toslink and you will get about 20 different types of cables. Their prices are cheaper than core-sound's - I don't recall what shipping was other than it was not out of line.

    I bought a 15' optical cable for $15 on eBay.
