    Digital to Analog Audio Converter

    This Digital to Analog Audio Converter converts Digital Coaxial or Digital Optical (Toslink) audio signals into stereo analog audio signals for connection to an external device, such as an amplifier, using standard RCA audio cables.

    Features:

    • Converts Coaxial or Optical (Toslink) digital stereo audio signals to analog stereo audio
    • Supports sampling rates at 32, 44.1, 48, and 96 kHz
    • 24-bit S/PDIF incoming bit stream on left and right channels
    • Provides electromagnetic-noise-free transmission
    • Easy to install and simple to operate
    • Supports 2-channel PCM (stereo) audio input signals only

     

    IMPORTANT NOTE! This device will NOT decode 5.1-channel signals. It will ONLY convert 2-channel digital stereo (PCM) input signals to analog stereo output. This will not work with TVs that only output 5.1-channel digital signals!

    Be Careful with HD TV
    The site mentions the sound frequencies but how many TV watchers know what they mean? If you have a HD TV that only has a digital sound output (Panasonic Plasma) this unit will not work for you on HD stations. My Tv does not allow me to select audio output of 2 channel or Dolby etc. I'm assuming that if I could select 2 channel it may work (lower the frequency?).

    PROS: None for my intended use. Works on HD TV standard channels not on HD broadcast channels.

    CONS: Does not work for HD TV stations

    Digital-to-analog audio converter
    If you want to hook up a new TV to an old stereo, this product works very well. Very easy to set up: just get an optical TOSlink cable (which Monoprice also sells), plug it into the "digital audio out" on the back of your modern TV, then run plain old RCA stereo cables out of the converter and into your stereo. If you want the warm sound of an old analog stereo to go with the great picture of a modern TV, this converter is exactly what you need.

    PROS: Easy to set up and use.
    Great stereo sound.

    CONS: None.

    Great low-cost solution
    I don't know what got into the heads of the TV manufacturers unless they want to render obsolete all the last generation home theater systems. It costs pennies to maintain backward compatability by producing sets with RCA audio output on TVs that can cost up to thousands of dollars but they have chosen not to, unless they want to sell home theaters to those who don't do their research and find a solution such as Monoprice offers, and at a reasonable cost. I was shocked when my Panasonic only offered Toslink audio output I never thought (as did many others!) to verify that the RCA outputs were on my premium-priced TV.
    Thanks Monoprice, and no thanks to the other manufacturers that offer a solution at 2 or 3 times the price...

    PROS: Exactly what is needed at a reasonable price, runs cool, NO hum as reported by a couple of other users (maybe it's their amp).

    CONS: None.

    great for the price
    It was this or use my tv's speakers so for a few bucks it's worth it. It sucks that I have to use this as my tv only had optical audio out and not rca, but whatever. I bought a 42" panasonic plasma and that's all I get. The converters that do support more than two channels cost around $100 or more and have certain restrictions as well.

    PROS: cheapest converter for what it does.
    easy to set up, plug-n-play/plug-n-listen

    CONS: Only supports 2 channels, so if you have a 5.1 surround setup this will only output to the front left, right, and subwoofer.
    The red led on the front of it is super bight and it just tells you that the unit is on or off

    6884 Digital Coax & Optical Toslink Audio Converter
    Worked with my Panasonic TC-P55ST50 HDTV. Used this along with your 1447 Optical Toslink Cable.
    Used it for my analog SubWoofer and Analog Wireless Headset.

    PROS: Works.....

    High pitched noise when no input
    It is a good optical to analog converter for the price.

    PROS: When used with an optical splitter, enables taking optical out from a computer and feeding analog into zone 2 on the amplifier. Most amplifiers will not allow connecting an optical input to zone 2. The other optical goes to main part of the amplifier for surround sound.

    CONS: Hi pitched noise at very low volume if there is no input and you forget to turn the amplifier off. The room has to be very quiet, but you will hear it at night.

    Perfect DAC Companion for AppleTV2
    Like many others, I bought this (along with Monoprice TOSLink cable) to connect an AppleTV 2 to a stereo minisystem (Tivoli, in my case) via RCA connects (also from Monoprice). Works like a charm. I knew it was small when ordering....but it's really small!

    Running lossless music through the ATV2 and this DAC, sound quality is great. Not that I've tried it against my audiophile CD player, but for the intended purposes (good quality music to another system, for well under $150 total) it can't be beat.

    Someone should put together an Instructables-style hack to cleanly and compactly couple the ATV2 with this DAC as a kind of single unit. Maybe I'll try!

    PROS: Price, Quality, Size

    CONS: For the price, almost none. Would prefer that the red power light (which is surprisingly powerful!) weren't there....but that could be easily covered.

    5/5
    I am using this converter box for audio from new Pansonic TV to old Sony stereo system. Easy setup and works just fine.

    PROS: works, easy connections.

    CONS: none

    Get one for apple tv and multiple zones
    I have an onkyo HTRC180 and zone 2 only plays analogue signals. This is easy to use if you need to run music to a second zone with apple tv. Don't pay $80 for the more expensive models with features you don't need. Works flawlessly and sound quality is just fine, especially for pumping tues to zone 2.


    PROS: Simple plug and play. Great price

    5/5
    Used this to connect a hearing-impaired elderly person's TV to his wireless headset, since it did not accept optical inputs (new TV only had optical out). Works perfectly, and doesn't require any experience in order to set it up! Just plug it in and go.

    PROS: +Very small in size

    +Extremely simple to set up

    +Works great

    Can I connect external powered speakers via the digital audio out with the converter and will I be able to control the speaker volume with the tv remote?
    A shopper on Jan 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This takes a digital signal and converts it to analog (e.g. console, Apple TV, etc.. to analog receiver or speakers). So as long as your output device / speakers are RCA, it will connect to your speakers. In terms of being able to control the volume, this does NOT have any kind of built-in amplifier so it will not do that, as it is just converting the digital signal to an analog one. In order to control the volume, you need to an amplified device somewhere in the OUTPUT side of the chain with its own remote control. This means either your speakers need to have their own remote, or you're connecting the output to a receiver / amplifier with its own remote, or you're connecting its output to a TV with its own remote output. To reiterate, the ONLY thing this is doing is converting the signal from digital to analog. It produces its output at a line level, which means no volume information is transmitted. That's all handled by whatever device you're connecting it to.
