I purchased this item for someone, who when switching from a local cable provider to satellite programming, found that the satellite box they were issued didn't have stereo analog outputs, which were needed to use a 2.1 computer sound system with it. After shopping around here on amazon as well as other places, I noticed comments about other units having hiss issues and loud noises on start up. In an effort to avoid such, I looked around for a unit that reportedly didn't have such problems, which led me to this unit.

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.

=UPDATED REVIEW=

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.

*Update* 12/15/2013
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.

*Update* 5/5/2015
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?

I bought this to get audio to an older Hi-Fi receiver from an Apple TV (3rd gen). The HDMI cable from the Apple TV carries the video signal to my flat screen TV, but I wanted the audio output to go to my older receiver. The Apple TV only supplies an optical digital out for the audio, and my receiver only has analog inputs. This little converter provided the necessary digital to analog conversion, and it works like a champ. The audio quality is far better than what I expected for the price, and the installation was dead simple -- it worked the moment I made the connections. I highly recommend this unit for purposes like mine.

To everyone considering purchasing this item:

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.

My parents got a new TV with digital audio out which worried me. My Dad has a TV Ears Wireless speaker attached to the TV he uses, and my mom sometimes leaves the volume on the main TV up as well. I was worried that having to use this converter on their new TV may introduce a slight audio delay which would put everything out of sync with the main speaker and make everything sound like it's in a tunnel. But it works perfect, so relieved!

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 must say that i am happily surprised by this. i was looking for a cheaper way to get my 192Khz/24bit audio to my preamp via RCA jacks, and this little converter is working Great. It's been plugged in & playing for over a month now with no problems.

i would recommend this to anyone looking to get hi def audio into anything needing RCA jack input.

Did alot of research on trying to run digital sound from a new flat screen TV to our 12 yr old DVD surround sound system. I didn't want to spend a ton of money, so had to settle for stereo sound as this converter does not allow for 5 channel surround sound. Plugged it in and it worked as described, no problems after 2 months. If you really need surround sound, this is not the product for you. Reason for 4 stars is that we have to turn up the sound volume on our old surround system to get a respectable level for intense movie watching, but that is a minor complaint. Absolutely no hum in speakers if left on when no TV sound is available.
