Optical connectors

Just got a canton dm50.  Installing the optical cable as supplied, the connector into the unit appears to go in half way very easily then is very stiff. Is it just needing a bigger push, should it click or feel solid when properly connected? How much play is expected in optic connector into unit and tv?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi there.

Hi there.

Optical connections usually click slightly. If it falls out when you tug gently then it's not connected fully. Some can be a little stiff but all optical connections are basically universal. The thinker the cable the better the sound will be too in my experience with them.

Hi-Fi: Campridge audio D500 SE, DACMagic 1, C500, P500.. Monitor Audio BR1 speakers.

H-T: Pioneer; Kuro LX5090, BDP LX71, SC LX73. CA P500. SKY+HD. Rel Q50. Mordaunt Short Avant.
