Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wanted to connect an LED TV to my Hi-Fi but it does not have analogue out, just an optical out. This ingenious device converted optical to analogue without any fuss, I just plugged in an optical lead from the telly to the device then connected audio leads from the device to my hi-if, both leads have to be purchased separately. Also connected the USB lead supplied in the box to a power supply, I used a spare iPhone charger plug and it worked a dream.Saved me spending a lot more than I did as I was going to buy an optical speaker system.Top marks from me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased one of these last week as I had just recently bought a new LG LCD TV and it didn't have an anologue 'audio out'. It only had an 'Optical Audio Out'. I wanted to hook-up my new TV to my existing analogue surround-sound system. This item worked perfectly. The only other item I needed to buy was an optical lead to go from the TV to this item. One thing that isn't really mentioned in the instructions though is that this item needs power from a USB lead from the TV. This lead is supplied with this item

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To coin the phrase, does what it says on the tin. This handy box-of-tricks bridges the gap between the all-digital outputs of AV equipment and the phono inputs of not-very-old amplifiers. With obsolescence seemingly built-in to modern day electrical stuff, it's good to know that gizmos like this are available. Much cheaper than buying a new amp! I'd just echo the point made by another reviewer that the box does need a 5V DC power input (via USB) to work; fortunately this was helpfully pointed out to me by the sales assistant at the time of purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this item after trying a similar product that didnt work. The assistant in store pointed this one out to me explaining about the usb power supply. Got it home and set it up in minutes, what an excellent piece of kit, i really wasnt expecting such good sound quality. I have used it from the optical out of a lg tv to a marantz amp. I would highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I do a lot of my listening with high quality headphones and was expecting this unbranded economy DAC to be a bit of a disappointment when it came to sound reproduction. I connected it to the"optical out" from my TV and use it with headphones only. What a surprise it was to hear such an excellent sound. I have to say that I agree with the majority of your reviewers and am more than satisfied. Definitely value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This device can be used to connect to either co-axial or optical SPDIF, but it does need to have USB connected. I am using it to power my personal inductive loop so I can listen to the TV clearly and it does not interfere with other people. This is a brilliant device and works really well. I would highly recommend this device for those who are hearing impaired as an interface between various devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got one of these just to try it out as an alternative to my pc speakers. (Have a good pair of headphones plugged into it - Audio Technica ath ad 700 ) That was a year ago and I do most of my listening using these. Youtube and mp3s sound great . Highly recommended. Also connected my hifi into it as well so I can share the sound. Probably the best bit of pc kit I have bought yet. Do your ears a favour and get one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was thinking about spending silly money on a soundbar when I found this. Using the optical output (from the TV) is worlds apart from the 3.5mm socket when connected to a Hi Fi. Worth every penny!

will this unit be ok to use, to play music from ITunes on my PC via the USB to feed the Stereo amplifier "aux in " Phono to Phono ?

Asked by: Neil TCM
Oldnewt comment. Some confusion over PHONO /RCA output. As long as Input sensitivity of Amp is about 150mV as is my input this will be absolutely fine, if not any other (tape/Aux/Tuner) input of that sensitivity will be OK but NOT True Phono I.E. Turntable. Most modern amps only provide line level inputs now for true phono (max. 5mV) requiring a separate phono amp interface for turntable. Kit: Icon Audio Amp, Monitor Audio Spkrs, Naim CD. Cambridge DAC/Phono amp.
