    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.


    • 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!

    What is the Toslink to Analog L/R conversion delay?
    New User U on Feb 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I haven't notice any latency. I use it to convert the audio from my Apple TV. I tested it: the sound send via HDMI to the TV is in sync with the sound coming from my stereo system that use the converter.
    What is the output voltage of the RCAs?
    Brian T on May 18, 2017
    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: If your TV has analog outs AND the speaker settings have the VARIABLE option, connect the amplified speakers (such as computer speakers) to an RCA male to 3.5 mm male stereo Y adaptor which you can get on Monoprice and set the TV speakers to OFF. That way the TV remote will control the volume of the external speakers. The digital to analog converter is not needed useless in this case.
    Does this go both ways? Can the Audio Out from a TV go through this to digital input at another location??
    Pierce M on Dec 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. Digital side is input only and analog is only an output. You would need an analog to digital converter to do what you want.

    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
    November 1, 2010
    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

    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

    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.....
    October 8, 2012
    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

    Problem solvers
    I ordered a pair of wireless headphones to use with my television, only to find that the headphones had an analog input and the TV only had an optical digital output. Instead of buying new, more expensive headphones, I checked out the conversion options on Monoprice. For a very low price I had the cable and converter that I needed within a week. Thanks, Monoprice!

    PROS: Fast, efficient service and delivery.
    Helped me find the right product.
    Excellent prices.

    toslink converter to RCA
    Works as described, very well no hum or noise of any kind. Using this to convert my audio from my tv via toslink out to listen to my xbox (games, netflix, dvds) via my older receiver which only has RCA inputs.

    As noted in the description this converter can only handle PCA audio which is the vast majority of sound output from my tv. The only exception to this is over the air digital tv through the rabit ears is not PCA so i have to use tv speakers for that.

    PROS: works as described

    CONS: like mentioned in the description can only convert PCM sound to RCA, which is most TV audio out from most sources but not all ie* over the air digital TV
