Was looking at others available on amazon, and saw that someone had said about this item 'MAKES A HIGH PITCHED NOISE'. Visually, the item was so similar to more expensive items, but it was at time of purchase, £15 cheaper than the others. I figured I'd take a punt on it and see what happens - thinking I can always return it.

No need to return it - it does the job brilliantly.

I was able to reproduce the 'HIGH PITCHED NOISE' that someone complained about, but it was simply down to the fact that no optical signal was being sent. This can happen if your audio source is off.

Simple fix, only turn onto the audio channel on your amp when the audio source is on.

Overall, cant fault the thing - it does the job I needed it to.

Given that this gizmo was about half the price of similar products it was no surprise to find that it is a very anonymous little box with only the ubiquitous "Made in China" label to indicate its origins. Nonetheless it is solidly built and came surprisingly well packaged in a sturdy, glossy cardboard box with a plastic insert to hold the unit and separate it from the supplied power pack. The power pack itself is one of those all-in-one jobs with an integral UK mains plug (no adapter needed!) and a useful metre or so of low-voltage cable to connect to the converter. The box also contains a tiny eight page user guide in perfectly readable English.

In my case I wanted to connect the optical digital audio output from an Xbox 360 to my hi-fi amplifier in order to get the best sound when using the Xbox for DVDs and CDs, but clearly it could just as easily be used for satellite or cable TV set-top boxes or dedicated DVD or CD players with optical outputs.

This was my first venture into TosLink territory so I was prepared for trouble but in fact there was really nothing to be too scared of, save one little snag which I'll come on to shortly.

There are two standard colour-coded RCA phono sockets for the audio output which I simply connected to the one of the inputs of my trusty old amplifier: easy job.

There are also two inputs, one optical TosLink which I used and an digital coaxial (which I didn't). I used XO Digital Optical Cable 2m / 2 Metre Premium Install Series - suitable for PS3, Sky, Sky HD, LCD, LED, Plasma, Blu-ray, Home Cinema Systems, AV Amps for the optical connection.

I bought this as I'd just bought a Sharp soundbar (I know, but I'm on a very tight budget!) that only has 3.5mm stereo jack input. I tried to input to the soundbar from the headphone out on the TV, but the results were not much better than from the TVs speakers. I decided that the amplifier on the TV was the main problem and bought this converter so that I could use the Digital Coax output to the 3.5mm analogue input on the soundbar, using a twin RCA to 3.5mm jack lead that I already had. It arrived, I unpacked and connected it to the TV and the difference in sound was excellent. The vocals were much clearer and background music was just that - background! I was very pleased until I tried to watch BBC2 HD and all I got was a deafening buzzing noise! I went back to a normal definition channel, perfect sound - all HD channels, buzzing! I thought I'd bought a lemon and then I read a review of a more expensive Fiio converter where the reviewer mentioned making sure that the SPDIF output was set to PCM. I checked my TVs settings and the SPDIF output was set to Auto. I set it to PCM, tried an HD channel and, bingo, crystal clear sound! No mention of this was made in the included instructions and, if I hadn't read the other review, I'd probably have sent this converter back as unsuitable, when all it needed was the TV setting correctly! Now all the settings are correct, I'm very happy with the converter, it does exactly what I need and at an excellent price too. I assume the optical side will work the same way, but as my cheap TV doesn't have this facility, I can't comment. For anyone needing a digital coax to analogue converter, I heartily recommend this one.

It works well... as it should, and as expected... And is cheaper than some alternatives.

However if I'm playing quiet music or audiobooks, there is a very audible hiss coming from all the speakers. It's so annoying that I'm not able to use this product- I tried for a few days but just got annoyed and started concentrating on the hiss more than the music I should have been listening to.

I bought a replacement from Maplin for almost double the price, however there is no hiss so I am happy.

I had thrown away the packaging when I unpacked the item so didn't have it so didn't return.

I have no problems with the vendor- very good delivery time, and appropriately packaged.

I used an SPDIF cable to connect the converter to a Toshiba 22" TV, it's only a cheapie
TV that's why the sound is abysmal. A power point is required nearby. I have Freesat
so the remote for that controls the converted audio, the remote for the TV controls the TV.
I've put the converted audio through a 25 year old Technics amp and matching and speakers.
(In other words I don't have any fancy audio system). I find the sound from programmes
with special audio effects quite astounding.

Overall, this convertor is more than value for money it has changed my viewing experience.
