Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Simple device that does the job well My amp has three coaxial and three optical imputs. All were in use. One connected device was replaced, but it had Toslink output. The new device had coaxial. This device has done the job of converting one to the other. Over time I expect it will continue to work well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compatibility of converter It didn't work. Contacted the soundbar company and although I had just bought the soundbar, the company is sending a replacement so I will have to wait until the replacement arrives to try the converter again. Hopefully it will work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not work No directions or typical hook up connections for various applications. Would be nice to suggest various cable types for different applications. A waste of money for me!

I need to know if this is what i need. I have a tv that has the fiber optical output. My surround has the rf digital audio input. So just to make sure im getting across what i need to say is. My tv has the output with the red light. My surround has the input for the digital audio cable that is similar to a rca cable. Will this converter do the job. I really have no idea. I need to make sure i get the correct one
Asked by: Chris
You would actually need the Optical to Coaxial digital converter (#40019). This will convert that optical signal coming from the TV and then convert it to a digital coax signal. You would also need to make sure to get an optical cable and a digital coax cable if you do not already have one.

i have a mitsubishi dlp tv with only a digital coax output but my bose cinemate series ii has both rca input nd optical input, will this product solve my issue?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes this product will work for your solution. The Digital Coax cable goes from the TV to our device and then you would connect a Optical from the device to your Bose.

will this item backwards convert as well: TOSLINK to Coax?

Asked by: hearightnow
No. It will only go from Coaxial to TOSLINK. Our part 40429 will convert either signal in either direction.

Will this product pass thru DTS cable tv signal from my Misubishi DLP to my Sony receiver? Is there a cheaper or more expensive converter that handles different frequencies? I am using one I got from you thru Amazon.

Asked by: Anonymous
It will pass DTS. This is the only Coax to TOSLINK converter we offer.
