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!

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
PROS: Easy to set up and use.
Great stereo sound.
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).
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
Used it for my analog SubWoofer and Analog Wireless Headset.
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.
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.
PROS: works, easy connections.
PROS: Simple plug and play. Great price
PROS: +Very small in size
+Extremely simple to set up
