Purchased a converter on the recommendation from other Amazon users who were helping me connect my Sennheiser wireless headphones via RCA/3.5mm jack to my LG Smart TV that only had Optical Toslink connection (no RCA, no 3.5mm jack). I was worried having yet another "connection" that may make the 'phones work but with a delayed sound match to picture (like bad lip-syncing/voice overs) but nope, not with this model. I opted for this one particular one over the model the other users mentioned bc I didn't want to have to use another DC/AC plug and this one uses USB to power it and cheaper by ten bucks to the former. I have a bunch of empty USB outlets on my TV so it works out perfectly!

It's small and lightweight so it could attach to the TV but I have it strategically hung on the wall mount bars without any problems.appreciate that it offers an on/off switch, if I want to power off for whatever reason but usually leave it on since I do use my 'phones daily with my neighbors STILL renovating while I work from home. (though I digress). So happy that I went with this model -- only one I found that was reasonably priced and didn't required another electrical outlet on my surge protector.

This is a basic device to allow you to use your older audio receiver without an optical input. I have a new Samsung plasma TV, which did not have an analog output like the previous model. With this device I can now connect the optical output of the TV to my Onyko receiver. The device has a USB power input, and it comes with the cable. Which I then connected directly to my TV's USB port to power the converter. No power transformer needed to power it up! Very easy and simple to connect, not a lot of extra cables or power source needed. You will have to go into the TV's audio settings to convert the digital signal to the proper setting. No big deal, and it works with all the devices I have connected to the TV, such as Direct TV, and a Blu Ray player.

Fast delivery, as described; works perfectly with excellent sound conversion - excellent price.
Easy to install but you have to buy optical cable and power supply separately (if no USB port near device).

Somehow my brand new Samsung PN51F5500 came with only optical audio out. So needless to say if you just spent 150 of Klipsh pro media 2.1 speakers you cant use them with ur Tv. Which has got me looking like jacky chan tearing his hear out. So I bought a lot of bs to try and make it work. (Like optical to 3.5mm do not buy they dont work at all) when i should have bought this first. This does a great job in maintaining the quality id expect from 3.5mm while making it easy to provide power because it uses the usb on the tv. Overall very happy. just hope it last. and important side note. You need to select PCM as your tvs audio out otherwise you will hear extreme distortion.

This device uses a mini USB port for its power source, and that's where all the trouble came from. I got this device all hooked up to my computer and speakers, and using a USB wall charger for the power source, and I noticed buzzing coming out of my speakers. I swapped out the USB wall charger for a different one, but then I noticed that whenever I turned on the lights to my room, the subwoofer would make a "thud" sound (which was a bit creepy sounding). So I tried connecting the power for the device directly to my PC, which was the worst of all and generated a lot of noise and hiss through my speakers. Finally, I hooked this device up to a USB battery pack (the ones you use for recharging cell phones on the go) and FINALLY I got clean sound (because I had clean power). So what does all this mean? It means that this probably won't work well for most people unless it is used with a power conditioner, in order to minimize power line noise and feedback coming through whatever speakers you hook up to it. It was so bad that I ended up returning it. Very disappointed.

My new converter works fine.
2 things to consider:
1-The directions for the using the USB power cable are a little obscure since it cannot be connected to a wall outlet.
The cable that was provided is apparently(?) meant to plug into a USB 5V 1A jack on the TV.
2-It would have been very helpful to have included a longer USB cable.

This was the perfect solution for me. It works great and I can use my surround sound system which doesn't take Toslink(Digital audio optical) and instead use the analog out.

I have a nice new TV and an old stereo system. This adapter and a optical audio patch cord got my audio optical out connected to that old stereo analog RCA inputs and now everything sounds much better. This eliminated a bunch of splitter cables and made a much cleaner hookup too.

I went "wireless" with a whole-home DVR on a TV with a Polk soundbar and subwoofer. Of course my previous connections didn't work and this little converter did the trick.
