Customer Reviews

Creates only noise.
NITEWATCHER
Bought this to convert the optical out from my Apple TV to RCA (analog needed to use as a multi-zone source on my AV receiver) and it works well.
Jason Hajj
Worked well for hook up of older surround sound system to new tv.

This audio converter (Sold by Acepurchase Inc - Fulfilled by Amazon) may work fine for some but, for many TVs, etc., this product does not seem to work if your (source) device does not support PCM/LPCM output. i.e. if your device will only output in the Dolby or other DTS formats, this converter is incapable of "decoding" these signals thus producing only white noise. It does not state these limitations in the product description where I had to, literally, learn the hard way.

After learning the differences in the newer audio formats, I found that I needed an audio decoder such as CE Compass Digital SPDIF / Coaxial to Analog L/R RCA Audio Decoder w/ 3.5mm Headphone Jack. This decoder works fine for me, but, still only outputting analog L/R signals. I knew this would be the result for either a converter or decoder and am happy for being able to use my (very good sounding) older analog stereo system with my new LCD TV.

Bought digital audio cable at same time along with this item . . . hooked up in minutes to my new speaker bar / wireless sub-woofer that only support analog audio (RCA plugs) and it worked great. The conversion of digital audio sound to split analog (red/white RCA plugs) worked fine, although the overall sound volume was somewhat lower than I expected but still you can really crank up the higher quality volume on the external speakers. I played the TV digital output sound through this device into a sound bar / sub-woofer and it greatly improved the sound over the standard speakers in the TV.

Only complaint would be that of any similar item like this is that they are not designed to conserve energy with the always on power supply converter. While a low user of power, all these power vampires add up over time. Also the plug did not fit in my power strip because it was too wide to be placed next to other plugs, so I had to plug it directly into the wall outlet.

If you have issues on installation, be sure the end of the digital audio cable plug is lit up in red (but don't look directly into end of plug since the digital laser technology can be dangerous for eyes) before you insert the plug into this device. All connections in the digital audio wire must be tightly fitted for this option to work properly. If properly set up, there is no reason why this device should not work for you. It was a simple set up and I didn't bother reading the instructions, although hiding yet another set of wires (two in counting the power cord, two out can be challenging.

Finally, not sure why TV manufacturers and speakers manufacturers can't agree on a standard or at least support multiple standards for both the newer and older options.

Device works great as long as the source attached to it is active. As soon as my Apple TV goes into standby mode, the speakers start buzzing until I wake up the Apple TV or turn off the speakers (or disconnect the converter, but why would I do that?).

Bought this to convert digital out from Apple TV to RCA for my home speaker system. Worked perfectly. It was plug and play. This was a relatively inexpensive solution to get audio out from Apple TV to RCA speakers. If you are looking to resolve a similar situation...this product is perfect.

This product works as described.
I replaced an older analog TV with a LED model and the new TV did not allow me to connect a wireless headset.
This converter/adapter along with an optical cable solved my problem.
I am pleased with this product.
It does what I purchased it for.

Won't accept returns after 30 days, and it died on day 31. $20 wasted. Oh well, off to find a better product. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Interjects quite a bit of white noise to the signal coming through it. Not too noticeable for standard pop music, but not good for classical and a lot of hisssing when no audio being processed through it at all.

I purchased this product, along with the recommended (and necessary, but not bundled) optical cable, as an alternative to a $300 TV stereo sound bar and wireless woofer from Best Buy, which I returned. I wear hearing aids and had been using a Sony wireless headset to allow me to slightly adjust the TV sound so it is not too loud for my wife. The problem was though that our new model TV does not have RCA type audio out, only a digital optical audio out. I was only able to plug the wireless headset into either the Netflix Roku box or the DVD, but not at the same time, and never into the TV itself for regular cable viewing or Netflix or DVD's. A real pain!
Well, this simple and inexpensive converter works like a charm. I am getting extremely clear reception in perfect sync with the video output. Problem solved. If it fails a day after the warranty expires, as mentioned by others, I may have a different review to post, but so far it works perfectly.
