    Analog to Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical Audio Converter

    So you've got your entire audio system running Digital (Coax or Toslink) audio, but you've got one old piece of equipment with analog output that is gumming up the works? No problem! Just get the Monoprice Analog to Digital Audio Converter and bring your old equipment into the digital age!

    This compact little converter has a set of right/left RCA analog audio input jacks. It will simultaneously convert the analog audio into both Digital Coaxial and Digital Optical (Toslink) Audio signals. You can connect either or both outputs to an appropriate digital audio input on a TV, AV receiver, or anything else.

    The converter has a digital sampling rate of 48 kHz and produces an LPCM stereo audio output signal. It is powered by a 5V DC power adapter, which is included. All the connectors are gold-plated for smooth, corrosion-free connections.

    Note that this converter only works one way - Analog to Digital. It will NOT convert digital signals to analog! For Digital to Analog audio conversion, consider the Digital to Analog Audio Converter (PID 6884).

    Pros: Small and compact. Easy setup.

    Cons: Only very low volume obtainable. Manual had Barbie sized printing and not very helpful with anything other than basic setup anyways (once I got out my magnifying glass).

    I used this to convert my old analog turntable signal to digital in order to feed signal to new digital receiver. Used yellow cable to connect to coaxial input on receiver. I had to crank the volume up to 80 (20 is normal for me) in order to get a somewhat decent volume output. Since the album was older, and volume so high, I was able to hear every crackle in the 30 year old vinyl. Am I doing something wrong or missing something? It seems like the converter needs a boost (it is plugged in BTW). Should I be using a Toslink cable instead? I am by no means an expert, but it looks like my receiver has an input for a Toslink cableit is about 2 years old. Monoprice has been great in the past, so please advise . . .

    Hello DLS,

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 8127. Unfortunately this converter does not have an amplifier built in. If I may ask, were you able to test the converter with any other devices to see if the same issue occurred? What length cables are in use here? Does the issue persist with shorter cables? Please let me know so we can look into this issue further. Thank you in advance!

    Great Device

    Pros: Easy set up, solid connections, reliable performance.

    Cons: Not that I can see.

    I used this as well as a cable with analog stereo connections with a 3.5mm head jack to connect to my old Macbook computer, and an optical cable to connect to my LG TVs sound bar to get decent sound for a NFL Preseason broadcast. Prior to its use, I could clearly see the game, but could only receive audio from my computer. The ability to connect sound to the TV sound bar enhanced the experience tremendously! For a similar set-up, I would highly recommend this item. It's great for streaming videos too.

    Didn't work at all.

    Pros: Um, it turned on? The connectors fit in well?

    Cons: Didn't work. Sound was running to it, but wasn't relaying anything.

    Went optical out to the adapter box, made sure it was powered up, red lights on box and optical cable, then went to my RCA to mini jack cable (all cables tested properly) mini jack (1/8th inch) into the aux input on my old stereo, and nothing was produced.
    TV was on correct setting, and when u test the stereo with another device other than the optical adapter it works fine.
    Something isn't reading right in the monoprice optical box.
    I'm just going to by a digital recieved and use HDMI outs like the rest of the world. No need to go cheap on it.

    Hello David,

    Thank you for your review and my apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 8127. Now if I may ask, what are we connect to this? What length are the cables being used? Also, has this been the case since you received it? Sorry again for the trouble and thanks in advance!
