The audio converter is an ideal expansion for TVs, home cinemas, and game consoles. Frequently, these devices do not have all of the connections that are required. Most often, there is digital audio output for connecting to a surround sound system. However, if you want to connect to a standard stereo system or active speakers, the required connections are often not available.
The audio converter lets you tap into the digital sound output using the coaxial output or the optical output. The device converts the digital sound and then outputs it to an analogue stereo sound output (2 RCA).
The converter is suitable for digital sound signals at sampling rates up to 96 kHz and resolutions up to 24 bits, and can thus be used in almost any situation.
