      I don't think you can run more than 50 ft with the plastic-based fibre-optic cable and budget TOSLINK connectors they're equipped with.... there is a higher grade spec of both cable and connector that will allow longer runs, but I'm not sure of what audio is equipped with it... certainly Alesis gear is not....

        Yeah:

        Plastic - 50ft
        Glass - 1 mile (I'm not joking)

        Kryptonite - from here to eternity (now I'm joking)
