Summary: I purchased this converter because my new tv only had optical audio out and the stereo I was using with my tv only has analog audio in. This converter seems really well made for the money and it works great. The supplied optical cable works great too! The audio quality is excellent.
Summary: I bought this to connect the digital audio output from my Panasonic LED TV to my legacy stereo audio system (RCA inputs). The Fiio D3 does the job very well at a great price! NOTE: It took a while to figure out that not only do you have to set the TV audio output setting to 2-channel stereo, you must do the same for any apps like Netflix as well (Netflix default was 5.1).
Summary: Just got a nice new LG Smart TV and wanted to listen to YouTube concerts on my stereo speaker system, but I only had analog audio output, and the TV doesn't have analog audio input. So I got this adapter, not really thinking it would work, but it does! I just plugged in the analog RCA plugs into the adapter, plugged the adapter into a wall outlet, then plugged the digital wire into the TV, then chose "speakers" for my audio output on the TV, and now I'm able to listen to...
Summary: Am really glad is working for everyone else with an apple TV but its not for me. I hooked it from ATV with RCA cables to my receiver and all I hear is tic tic tic. Yes I did have the dolby setting off. I am either missing something really big here or the unit I got is a lemon. Actually rather angry that it doesn't work. Even with ATV off, and receiver on, I could hear the tic tic tic.
Summary: I have a hard time rating this digital to analog converter because I still have no real understanding of how it works. I needed it for my setup and this little gizmo works as advertised and in accordance with the other good reviews which made me comfortable enough to try it. Sound quality still seems very good (i.e., unaffected by conversion).
Summary: Allowed my LG plasma TV to send audio to powered analog speakers. Plug and play, excellent sound quality. Make sure TV audio output is set to PCM. Well made little module. LEDs on module indicate power and optical connection status. Nice that the optical cable is included.
Worked like a charm converting digital audio on TV

Summary: I found myself with a 37" LCD TV which was incompatable with a Sound bar (and subwoofer) system. The Sound bar used standard analog RCA connectors. For some reason the ouly audio out on the TV was digital. This product worked like a charm in bridging the interface mismatch !
Summary: My Apple TV audio out is either coax or optical, neither available on my Yamaha receiver. This little device solves the problem, sound is two channel streaming from server to the receiver. Just remember to go to the Apple TV settings and turn Dolby audio off.
