    Had to order this to hook up an older Onkyo receiver to my new Panisonic Plasma TV. Works perfectly as described and was a snap to install once I figured out that I had to take the plastic caps off the digital audio cable.

    Only gripe is that it is incredibly flimsy feeling to the point that I worried it was going to crumble just plugging the cables into it. Not a big problem since it simply just sits behind my entertainment cabinet.

      Comments about EXT-DDIGAUD-2-AAUD GefenTV Digital Audio to Analog Adapter:

      I needed a DAC to connect a new DVD player to my 30-year-old Carver preamp, and this had gotten good reviews. It's tiny and straightforward to hook up. It's irritating to have to spend more on cables and DAC than the player cost, though. You can get a cheaper DAC but THD on this one is very low, and it seems to be made very well.

                I needed to be able to hook up my earphones to my LG TV and since the TV did not come with an earphone jack I bought this item together with an
                XHD XD1 Digital Toslink Audio Cable and I then had to purchase a Hosa Technology Stereo Mini (3.5mm) Female to 2 RCA Male Y-Cable (6")to plug the earphones into. Works GREAT, volume is perfect. And I can now watch TV without disturbing anyone else.

                      Took it out of the box and connected it to my Samsung TV audio optical output and to my stereo receiver. My Samsung LED tv has banana plug audio outputs but wasnt happy with the quality. This gave better quality but the volume is much lower. Overall, ok.

                                  This unit worked perfectly to convert audio signals from my digital TV to my older audio system--but only analog channels. I contacted Gefen and their customer service referred me to another unit (GTV-DD-2-AA) for my application. With it installed, I can now listen to the audio signals from both analog and digital channels on my Sony/Bose surround system. The adapters work very well--as long as you have the right one for your needs.

                                      Are you trying to connect a modern flat-screen TV to older stereo equipment, and just discovered that your new TV doesn't have the familiar "red and white" (RCA) audio jacks? No problem - just get this Gefen Digital to Analog Audio Adapter! It comes with an optical (TOSLink) cable and a variety of AC plugs for use in various countries. It will also work with devices that send audio via Coax connections. (I was also happy to learn that the item is made in Taiwan). B&H Photo's price on this item beats that of many competitors!

                                          I used this adapter to connect my new LCD TV to my old Onkyo AV Receiver. The TV did not have an analog audio out, and the AV receiver did not have a digital audio input.

                                            This little adapter saved the day for my new Apple TV. My television was purchased just before TV's got HDMI. I had a DVI to HDMI adapter for the video signal, but no audio. This little Geffen adapter very successfully takes the digital audio from my Apple TV and converts it back to the analog audio my TV supports. One day I'll get a new TV, but I have a 57" rear projection TV that still works great so this adapter really saved the day!

                                                I ended up having to replace my stereo receiver. Then, ended up having to replace my TV. When I went to hook up the TV, I found it had a Optical Digital audio output -- but, the new receiver needed RCA. This little box solved the problem, converting digital audio into analog. Works perfectly.

                                                    IT COMES WITH AN OPTICAL TOSLINK CABLE (5ft), even though bhphoto and Gefen say that officially its not listed in the "In the Box" list.

                                                    The power is 110-220 volts, and has all of the adapters necessary for using world wide, USA, England, Europe/Asia/Middle east, Australia/New Zealand - Amazing !

                                                    Plug and play set up - very easy.

                                                    I just bought an LG plasma TV I use it to watch downloaded content. It has a USB connector and my TV can play Blueray videos! The TV only has optical sound output which isn't very useful if you want to use analog stereo speakers.

                                                    I wanted to connect the TV to my amazing Bose Companion 5 system (made for computer speakers) via the auxiliary stereo jack provided on the Bose speaker.

                                                    So i need to convert from the optical toss-link to the RCA stereo analog. This converter did a great job, and Bose said that i should get the simple Gefen version and not the special Dolby Digital (which is much more expensive) since Bose "synthesizes a proprietary TruSpace digital circuitry 5.1 effect from the stereo signal when the aux input jack is used".

                                                    To connect from the Gefen RCA output to the aux input in the Bose jack i used male-male 'Y audio cable'.

                                                    Works great !
                                                    Also there is no popping sound reported by others when changing channels, since i'm not channel surfing just watching off the USB external hard-drive plugged into the TV.

                                                      I am an old school 2 channel stereo guy and I just purchased a 1080p HDTV. I had my old TV hooked up to my stereo via the headphone jack and RCA connectors. The new TV only had optical out for audio and I was bummed out to the point of returning the TV for one with RCA audio out. This component solved the problem!

                                                      The only negative is that the instructions don't tell you to take the plastic caps off the optical connectors. Fortunately enough people had the same problem so my solution was on line. The added hassle could have been avoided with a simple instruction.

                                                      Somethings are hard, some easy. I have an older flat screen TV that doesn't have an optical digital input but standard RCA left and right audio input. Apple TV has only optical audio output. So, the Gefen adapter fills the bill and is easy to connect (or would be if all those cables weren't stuffed in the cabinet). My only annoyance is having to find another power outlet to plug the adapter in.

                                                      I Wanted to convert the optical audio output of my sony HD TV to a analog receiver and mixer. all i got was a faint signal and it did not work.
                                                      You have to get the DDs model to output 5.1 for almost 100 bucks But the reviews say that it gives off a pop that can blow your speakers.

                                                                Provides a nice clean signal from my TV's digital output to my stereo receiver. I feel it's a little pricey but not many other options out there, and it does its job well. Please note it comes with its own optical cord, don't buy a separate one!
