Perfect converter for RCA and Jack input.,
The converter is perfect for connect Optical sources to older devices with RCA or 3,5 Jack (You need a special cable)input.
I ordered this because I have Virgin HD box and there is only optical audio output on it and my old old 5.1 audio system only can handle Stereo RCA or Jack input. So this converter is the perfect solution.
The converter is so small, smaller than a credit card and about 1 cm thick. So you can hide away easily. It is came with it's DC power adapter and a really clear user manual. (other cables not included)
What I did: I connected the converter with an optical cable to the set-top-box and on the other side I connected the converter to my audio system with RCA cable.
Works perfectly, good quality and crisp sound on my speaker system. The converter convert the digital signals into left and right analogue signals. So my speaker system can make 5.1 sound from these.
I would recommend to anybody.
