After receiving the unit and hooking it up, I was happy to learn that the reports from other users were true. No hiss or loud noises upon start up to speak of, and it works well.
A note to other shoppers,
Make sure whatever device you plan to use with this converter supports PCM stereo output before ordering. This unit doesn't have the ability to decode a dolby digital 5.1 signal, and therefore won't work when fed one. It's intended use is to convert a PCM digital stereo signal (...2 channels...) into an analog stereo signal. Buy with that in mind, and enjoy.
Unlike this product (B004C4WPXA and another one of these identical-looking converter boxes, one which emits a loud static noise upon startup, this OREI model makes absolutely no noise at any time.
I had originally bought the model I linked above, and left a more detailed review on that product page, but that's all that needs to be said. This model makes no noise, as if it isn't even there, with any combination of turning your input or output sources on or off. Took me a while to find the one that worked well, but I got my package today and my search was over. This is it. No noise ever. Awesome.
Unit is still chugging along a year later.
There have been a few instances where hissing will fade in and out, but unplugging/replugging it in solves this rare occurrence. I'm ultimately still satisfied.
The unit has started to get slightly noisy. Not nearly as bad as the HISSSSSSSSSS of the other products, though it may get to that point soon.
With the difference in products that have a similar function (like the one previously linked) it could be as simple as the inclusion of a filtration circuit in this unit, which uses at least one capacitor. That said, my speculation is that the internal capacitor responsible for noise filtration is failing. Could be wrong, I'm not an electronics engineer, but I think it's a semi-safe bet.
This unit has been powered on every time I use my home computer (heavy computer user ~6-7 hours/day) and seeing how it has lasted several years, I am still ultimately pleased with the purchase price, as it was pretty inexpensive ($17 or $18 IIRC) and if it is just as simple as a failing capacitor, could even be repaired. Heck, I might try to replace the capacitor just as a project, and if I bust it, who cares?
This item looks like it is well made. It worked when we plugged it into our LG LED 47'' tv, but only on the network channels. If you are looking for something to work with digital channels, then keep looking around. Make sure that you check BEFORE YOU BUY this item, what kind of audio output your TV has. This item does not work with Dolby Audio. Returned it for a refund, and was happy with the customer service that Amazon provided.
As others have noted, make sure the TV is only outputting Left/Right stereo audio (no surround sound). You should also check the settings of your DVD/Blu-Ray player and anything else attached to the TV and make sure surround-sound is turned off on everything.
i would recommend this to anyone looking to get hi def audio into anything needing RCA jack input.
