I have a Sager NP8235 and according to specs it has a SPDIF output. It looks like a 3.5mm output with the exception of the red light inside the jack. Not sure what cable type I should get. Im almost positive this is a mini toslink output, but not certain.
If this is the case, my plan is to go with a mini optical output to a toslink 90* adapter on the laptop to keep the cord away from the middle of the desk so I can run it down the edge of the laptop to my DAC/Amp.
Also does anyone have any experience with a Nyrius NWC500 cable: http://www.amazon.com/Nyrius-NWOC500-Performance-Digital-Optical/dp/B004UHY8SO/ref=sr_1_37?ie=UTF8&qid=1382223088&sr=8-37&keywords=optical+cable
This cable looks to be very well built and seems to get good reviews in terms of quality materials.
