How do I connect my new HDTV Toslink audio to my older stereo receiver or amp that only has RCA input? We get this question a lot. The answer is: with this digital to analog converter (DAC). This handy item takes the coaxial digital or Toslink optical S/PDIF from your TV and gives you standard L/R RCA for your stereo, amp, or receiver. Problem solved.
It's the ultimate insult: You go to connect your new HDTV to your stereo, only to find out that the TV manufacturer has omitted RCA stereo outputs. Fortunately, you don't have to set aside that favorite analog receiver or amp, nor do you have to live with wimpy on-board TV sound.
This digital-to-analog converter is a simple solution for taking the digital optical SPDIF or coaxial signal from your TV and turning it into an analog RCA left/right signal. It has the ability to decode the most popular digital formats, including PCM stereo, and all popular 5.1 and 7.1 multi-channel home theater formats.
An advanced chipset ensures compatibility with virtually any HDTV!
