Rated 2 out of 5 by from When/if it works it's fine. However, there seems to be a sync problem which means sometimes it works and others it just gives white noise or squeals. Have to keep turning either the amp or Tivo on and off to get it to sync. Also, it seemed the sound was very slightly delayed, which meant lip sync with the TV was very fractionally off. If you turned up the TV sound, there was a noticeable echo effect. Eventually gave up and chucked it and went back to TV sound. I had the optical end connected to a Tivo and the digital phono connected to a NAD T760 both ends had decent cables connected too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to connect a Samsung Smart TV to my old Altec Lansing digital surround sound system. The Samsung only puts out an optical signal, and the Altec only accepts a coax. I had to adjust the audio delay very slightly on the Samsung to kill the echo, but once set up the results have been fantastic. Great value for money.

I need to listen to TV sound through headphones. Input will be via a TOSlink cable from the TV audio out socket. Please can you tell me whether the phono out socket on this will accept a 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack? If not please advise on the best fix.

Hello I've been looking for one of these but Im not sure if this is the right one, could you please help? I have a tv with a digital coaxial (orange port) and I want to connect it to my sound system which has optical toslink port, will this work?

Asked by: Christian Wiltshire
You are almost right, if the TV outputs digital audio via coaxial (SPDIF) and you want to plug it into a TOSLINK then you need the following http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/digital-audio-optical-phono-to-toslink-converter-l73ba

Can I use this to connect the optical output from a ps4 to a stereo?

Asked by: John
Yes if the stereo features a digital audio phono (SPDIF) connector. If it just has left and right audio in then the device is not suitable.
