Hi guys,


I posted this in the DVD section, but thought that I'd give it a try here as well.


My DVD player (RP62) doesn't have a coax out, and my new receiver (D912K) only has two optical inputs in the back, and I have need for three. I'm considering buying a Toslink to coax converter from Audio Authority for $70.


My question is, will I lose any signal quality with the converter? Anyone here have any experience with such a converter?


Thanks for your help.

I use one I purchased from Radio Shack and it sounds good to me. I use mine for the TV out on my Mits WS-48511 RPTV which is coax, and I switch to optical.

You will lose some signal quality. Whether it will be noticable depends on the sensitivity of you ears, resolution of your system, and quality of the converter.

You will not loose any signal quality. You will loose your beliefs in urban legends though :)

Seriously, even the weak argument about jitter in digital audio transports will not stand here, so go ahead and get a converter.

Want to save some money? Check this . I have one between my DirecTiVo and my pre/pro. Sound is superb.

I bought the Audio Authoritiy unit over 2 years ago and it works perfectly. If I were in the market for a converter today I would definitely try the partsexpress model in Larry's post. I doubt very serioulsy that there will be any audible degradation. Good luck.
