S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical to Digital Coaxial (RCA) Audio Converter
Convert a Digital Optical Audio signal into a Digital Coaxial Audio signal using this S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical to Digital Coaxial (RCA) Audio Converter from Monoprice!
The Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format allows for both an electrical signal, carried over Digital Coaxial Audio cable, and an optical signal carried over a Digital Optical Audio cable. This converter allows you to connect an optical output to a digital electrical signal. It measures only about 3" x 2" and includes a 6 VDC, 3A AC power adapter.
PROS: Works great. Now my LED TV (Toslink) and my Entertainment System (Coax) works. Able to amplify the volume without and issue.
CONS: It would be great if they have a 110 to 240V power adaptor.
PROS: Worked great for me, allowing us digital surround sound from a 2nd source (satellite & HTPC) w/o having to replace existing Audio Video Receiver. Very low power: description says wall wart is 3000ma...it's actually 300ma, which I'm sure is plenty based on the Converter operating cool-to-the-touch.
CONS: Not the product's fault, but it the extra cable + wall wart added to the "rat's nest" behind entertainment center...Then when satellite digital audio went out temporarily, I thought it was the new converter.
Worked perfectly out of the box. No audio delay, signal loss, just plain works!
Always happy with Monoprice excellent prices, great customer service and quick shipping!
Does require AC power and comes with the adapter but no optical cable, but they are cheap so no big deal.
Thanks again Monoprice!
PROS: Great price, small size, works perfect!, No signal loss or audio delay.
CONS: None. Doesn't come with an optical cable, just AC adapter.
