When you are already wired with coax this is a much better solution than running 60 feet of new fiber optic line. SPDIF coax may not be as good as fiber optic but when you need a long run like I did and already have the coax in place this is absolutely the right choice.It handles all encooding options I have tried through Dolby DTS. No detectable quality loss.I was extremely pleased to find this adapter at Cables To Go. [...]

I have a new TV which only has an optical output and a sound system that has a coaxial input. It works for awhile, but after a couple of hours the sounds are slightly off from what I am seeing on the screen.

Mouths move and then a second later you hear the words. I haven't used other types of these so I have nothing to compare it to. It works, but in order to use it for a couple of hours or more, you must reset it by unplugging it and plugging it back in.

    Comments about Optical to Coaxial Digital Audio Converter:

    Used it to transfer Audio 30ft or so from TV Audio to Audio Receiver. Most TV's only have Toslink outputs. I used this device at the TV to convert to coax for the long run to the Audio receiver. At the receiver end I had a Coax to Toslink converter to supply Toslink to the Audio reveiver.

    Comments about Optical to Coaxial Digital Audio Converter:

    This product and its coax to fiber partner are advertised as converters to deal with a shortage of jacks of either the fiber or coax variety. However, I purchased this as way to carry multichannel audio from an optical port on a Satellite receiver to a 5.1 channel reveiver/amplifier separated by about 75 feet of cable length. I was able to run a custom length of coax very easily to the Sony receiver's coax digital audio jack and use a short fiber optic cable to complete the connection on the satellite end. This saved me the expense of the long fiber cable (not custom length) as well as the worry about kinking or otherwise damaging the fiber.Note: I had read a comment on a site selling a similar product that warned the digital audio signal coming out of the coax side of the converter might not be compatible with the coaxial digital audio inputs on some receivers. Fortunately, I found this not to be true: Dolby Digital 5.1 is working perfectly from a [...] box to a low-end Sony receiver.
