5.0 out of 5 stars Simplicity is the best March 2, 2010
By PhxRex
Verified Purchase
I bought this D.A.C. in order to keep my room quiet while my roommate was sleeping while still enjoying my movies and music. First off, Unique products had the delivery estimated for a week from order date, I received it in two shipping days, awesome shipping performance from the seller.

After fiddling with settings and talking with customer service from the seller, I have got this working. It works fantastic, and sounds absolutely fantastic with headphones, converting the optical audio out on my Samsung LED to my analog headphones without issue.

If you are thinking about buying a new television that doesn't have a headphone port, I highly recommend this product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very flexible D to A converter November 4, 2010
Verified Purchase
This perfectly solved the problem when I needed to connect headphones to my HDTV that had no headphone or analog audio outputs. It has a great variety of inputs and outputs, and it simply works, without any fancy configuration. Excellent product.

When I got my LG HDTV, I found that it didn't have a standard miniplug connector, so I couldn't plug in my headphones. This device (with an HDMI cable, which you need to purchase separately) lets me do that. The cable plugs into the Digital Optical Audio Output connector on the TV, and the other end into the converter, and the headphone miniplug connector plugs into the converter (there are several other types of connectors, too). Audio volume is controlled with a knob on the converter, which is mildly annoying (I can't change the volumn or mute from the remote), but I can live with that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great DAC December 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
Are there better DACs on the market? YES!! lots of them!

Are there cheaper DACs on the market? Yes.. but they aren't worth it.

This DAC does exactly what you want it to do, and it does it well.

I've used both the USB interface and the optical input to bypass the sound card on my MacBook Pro and drive my M-Audio bookshelf monitors. You'd never believe that the detail and clarity that fills my media room is coming from a rig this inexpensive. It may not be the prettiest or the latest tech, but you won't get better performance at this price. It just isn't possible.

My preferred connection method is optical digital, as that eliminates USB delays and compatibility.. but even if USB is your only option, it still does the job well. I have, on a few occasions, plugged this into the back of my TV so I could bypass the cheap audio processor and drive studio monitors on movie night.. absolutely fantastic result there as well.

Great as a low-budget DAC and as a back-up unit. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally I can watch TV with headphones August 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
It used to be that most TVs had a standard headphone jack so you could plug in and listen to TV with headphones on. With the new flat screens, it seems they all have digital optical outputs. Have you ever seen headphones that could plug into these jacks? Uh, no. And I don't have an amp that has TOSLINK. This product finally gave me the ability to listen to TV with headphones on without having to buy an entirely new amp. I like to watch sci-fi movies at night when the family is in bed, and headphones are a must. This product works as advertised, and comes with all of the cables necessary to hook up to your TVs digital optical output.

Unlike the old headphone jack, plugging this unit into your TV will not automatically shut off the sound to the TV. The TV sound controls will not have any effect on the sound level this unit provides. So, you will need to turn the sounds down on the TV first. The unit has its own volume control, which can be a little inconvenient. You will need to get up and turn the know yourself.

All in all a great product that solved my problem for a decent price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works as published. Minor nit-pick. Basically happy. December 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
I'm retired, I rarely write reviews and I'm not in the pay of anyone. This product has worked flawlessly for some months, and was easy to set up. How many things are this simple nowadays?

The product arrived quickly, and the device worked as published right out of the box. This is not a flimsy, marginal, take-your-chance kind of purchase. Neither is it a bleeding-edge product. It's just a solid, simple box.

I wanted to connect a flat screen TV to some earphones. The earphone only had a 3.5mm stereo plug. Many modern TVs don't have this kind of socket now. So I used the fiber-optic output from the TV to hook up the gadget. I chose the fiber-optic only because I had a spare fiber-optic cable to hand. I have not tested the other inputs, but I assume they work properly too.

Once I had figured how to get the TV to spit audio out of the fiber-option output, and turned up the volume, the gadget worked right away.

NIT-PIKS: I have three very minor nitpiks, both of which probably stem from the context of my application:

My hearing is no longer 100%, so I'd appreciate a little more oomph from the amplifier. But on full volume it's still OK for me and apparently undistorted. It is certainly adequate for all but deafest old coots.

The audio outputs are on the front of the unit, instead of grouped with the inputs on the rear. This is probably OK for most people, but it made for an untidy appearance under my TV where I'd like all the wires to disappear out the back. Shame there are not outputs on both ends.

As you can see in their picture, the box is rounded. This means that it won't stand on it's edge. Neither could I stack another little box (IR relay) on top.

Summary: good solid product, works as advertised, no qualms about endorsing.
