    Default Wanted: Dustcap for digital optical Toslink port

    I'm looking for one of the small caps you use to cover the older-style toslink port - I think the newer ports tend to have a dust cover built in.

    Just finding the names for these things is hard enough! I think this is what I mean: http://http://www.cwc-group.com/toslinkcap.html

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a UK/EU seller where I can purchase one of these for a reasonable cost?

    Thanks in advance.

    You mean those little black thing that you plug into the TOSLINK socket when it is not is use? They are fitted to my most recent DACs. If you don't find anyone to sell you one, PM me and I shall see if I can find one that I have hidden away somewhere.

    They seem to be strangely difficult to find on ebay ... but there is this one

    It might be easier to buy a toslink plug and plug the outer hole (with bluetak?). Not as neat as the dedicated cap, but cheap and easier to get hold of.

    Ah! So the easiest solution looks to be to buy a socket and use the included cap. Of course!

    Thanks all - I hadn't thought of buying the whole socket so I could get the little plastic dust cover, but actually the cheapest option so far! I'lll order one from eBay.
