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 Does exactly what it says on the tin. I had run out of optical ports on my AV receiver, but needed a way of feeding audio back from my 3D TV to it. Was beginning to think I needed to replace my AV receiver until I saw this. I never thought I would need to use the coax audio on the receiver, but now very glad those spare ports were there.

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.

My LG TV has optical sound output, will this converter allow me to use the 2 x RCA Stereo Phono (Aux) input on my Bose Wave system to work? But with only one Phono output can I use a Mono to Stereo phone RCA lead to drive both L/R speakers?

Asked by: Crofter
Sorry no, this device converts digital optical audio (TOS LINK) into digital audio SPDIF (single phono). Your BOSE system inputs are ANALOGUE audio (left & right phono) To connect to these you would need to convert the DIGITAL audio coming out of the TV into ANALOGUE audio via use of a Digital to analogue converter such as. https://www.maplin.co.uk/p/optical-and-coax-digital-to-analogue-audio-converter-a44qx

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
