2-Way Optical/Coaxial DIgital Audio Converter
This digital audio converter will switch an optical (Toslink) connection to Digital Coax (RCA), and vise-versa. Perfect for cases where the output on the source device doesn't match the input on the destination device. It also doubles as a 2-way splitter and range extender/repeater.
- 2 Inputs, 2 Outputs
- Convert from Coaxial to Toslink, and vise-versa
- Input is selected with the switch on the unit
- Outputs to both Coaxial and Toslink ports simultaneously
- Supports various audio formats (DTS, Dolby AC3, LPCM2)
- Powered by USB cable (included)
- Amplified signal means no loss of quality
This unit is incredibly versatile, as it allows conversion between these 2 commonly found connection types with no loss of quality between them. Both connections are output simultaneously, opening up a range of connection options for your digital devices!
Being an active/amplified unit, it requires a power source. We include a USB cable which you can simply plug into a USB port (eg: on a TV or gaming console) to provide the necessary power. Note that the device with the USB port sometimes needs to be switched on for this to work. Alternatively, use the USB cable (included) with a USB power adaptor (sold separately) to plug into a mains power outlet.
No Loss of Quality
This is an active or amplified converter, meaning it doesn't actually 'split' the signal; it multiplies it. This means there's no loss of quality because you get 2 identical signals and each one is at least as strong as the original. Active units like this are far more reliable than cheaper, unpowered ones.
The built-in amplification also enables larger output distances from each of the two outputs (dependent on your equipment and your cables). This can be very useful for creating multi-room systems.
Perfect for use in environments such as your Home Theatre, venues, bars, etc. You may have a CD player with only a digital coax output, and a receiver/amplifier with only toslink, or vise-versa! This converter will allow you to connect these devices together!
