so I want to hook my TV up to my older amp. (it's an LCD)  

problem is the amp is only analog inputs (it's old as ****)

 

TV does NOT HAVE:

analog out, HDMI out, component HD out, or toslink out

 

TV DOES HAVE

SPDIF OUT ONLY (****ing sanyo)

 

INPUT receiver has, ANALOG L/R (red white) ONLY

 

so i'm looking for a decent

 

(TV OUT) SPDIF -> ANALOG L/R converter (Receiver/amp)

 

I saw a few of these cheap ones on places like monoprice (since you guys love that place) and ebay

but I heard some things about really bad sound quality.

 

also is there a brand out there that makes one of these that DOES NOT REQUIRE A POWER SOURCE?

 

Questions:

 

1: Do these DAC units reduce audio quality to such a level that it is not a good idea to run a home theater/sound bar through one? (ie: buy a new tv with HDMI out, and a new receiver with HDMI in, you poor****)

 

2: is there a DAC (cheap not one of the $999 firefly tube ones) that does not require a power source? passive, no need to run it into the wall? or even USB powered so it's only on when my computer is on.
