The TAISHAN-D03K from FiiO is a simple device that converts coaxial or optical S/PDIF digital audio into a stereo analog output, perfect for multimedia components such as TVs or CD/DVD/Blu-ray players that do not feature analog output. Dual RCA phono outputs can be connected to an amplifier, while a 3.5mm mini stereo output can be used to supply signal to a WLAN wireless headphone system. (The mini stereo output is not recommended for direct connection to conventional wired headphones.)

The unit features a digital input format switch and an LED to confirm digital signal lock. Power is supplied by an included external power supply. The input will accept up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution PCM digital audio, but Dolby Digital and DTS are not supported.

Note: Connecting regular headphones directly into the 3.5mm output is not recommended.

Converts a digital coaxial/optical S/PDIF signal to two-channel (left/right) analog output, which can then be fed to an amplifier or to WLAN headphones

      Works great, Great sound, Well Built

      Had to replace my bluray player and they no longer have stereo audio output, only coaxial digital audio.

      I have an old school high end stereo in my living room and I do not mean to replace it with mediocre multi-channels. It's expensive enough to have two good channels.

      Purchased this and hooked it to the coaxial audio output from the TV and it works great. The Digital signal travel from the Bluray to the TV through the HDMI cable and the signal which would go through the TV speaker is sent to this box.

      Sound is as good as it could get from stereo 48K/24Bit streaming.

      My new Sony Bluray player do not stream 2 channels unless I play an audio CD or a movie with 2 channels output, so this cannot be connected directly to the bluray player.

      I always found DVD and bluray to sound good, well at least much better then CD because of the high resolution and the large budget for movie audio track recording. This device sounds as good as the output from previous DVD/Bluray player.

      I purchased another one to connect to the Bluray player when I want to listen to CD or MP3.

      They also have a multi channel version of it if you have an older multi-channel sound system with no digital input.

      Considering the overal quality vs. price of this device, and the fact that it saved the day when I replaced my Blurey player, I give it a well deserved 5 stars.

                I have a mini toslink cable going from apple express to the taishan-DO3K. Then 3.5 mini RCA cable to my Marantz 2265B hooked to Definitive Technology BP-6B towers. I listen to internet radio classical most all the time and the music is clear and precise. Not sure is my ears could tell if I had a $ DAC connected vs. the DO3K.

                    Very easy to set up. One trick to remember is the use the toggle switch on the bottom to switch from Coaxial to Optical. USB style plug is smaller than older plugs which is a good selling point. I would highly recommend the product. It's a bit more expensive than others on the net but much better quality and well worth the extra.

                            Now, with the digital technology and people like me who still treasure his old analog equipment, it is a great tool to have. It is not a multi channel audio track converter, but I am much pleased with my 2.0 system.
                            Versatile since you can choose the way you power it and the quality of the sound and build also. Small. A bit bigger than a (regular size) match box.

                              I am using the D03k as an output from the audio interface into a headphone amp. The D03k introduces a stereo pair from the audio interface S/PDIF output allowing the analog outputs to route as is. The unit works. B&H stands behind the product. The price was right for the value and the quality is fine. Thank you B&H.

                                      Works fine, easy to hook-up. Also ordered a Hosa Tech ADAT male to male optic cable. Took both out of boxes, plugged them in and my "TV Listner" worked just fine. Nothing else was done or changed.
                                      Sound was very good. Couldn't ask for anything easier. Delivery was prompt, as usual.

                                          May interfere with AM radio reception.

                                            Had to replace my bluray player and they no longer have stereo audio output, only coaxial digital audio.

                                            I have an old school high end stereo in my living room and I do not mean to replace it with mediocre multi-channels. It's expensive enough to have two good channels.

                                            Purchased this and hooked it to the coaxial audio output from the TV and it works great. The Digital signal travel from the Bluray to the TV through the HDMI cable and the signal which would go through the TV speaker is sent to this box.

                                            Sound is as good as it could get from stereo 48K/24Bit streaming.

                                            My new Sony Bluray player do not stream 2 channels unless I play an audio CD or a movie with 2 channels output, so this cannot be connected directly to the bluray player.

                                            I always found DVD and bluray to sound good, well at least much better then CD because of the high resolution and the large budget for movie audio track recording. This device sounds as good as the output from previous DVD/Bluray player.

                                            I purchased another one to connect to the Bluray player when I want to listen to CD or MP3.

                                            They also have a multi channel version of it if you have an older multi-channel sound system with no digital input.

                                            Considering the overal quality vs. price of this device, and the fact that it saved the day when I replaced my Blurey player, I give it a well deserved 5 stars.

                                              This converter did exactly what I bought it to do!
                                              I connected the converter to the optical, audio output on my TV, connected the unit to my wireless headphones and started watching and listening to movies, sports, music, whatever in blissful solitude!
                                              It took longer for me to write this review than it did to go from opening the box to using my headphones!

                                                    This a quality DAC at a very fair price. It does a fine job converting a PCM-digital output, either coax or optical, to an analog output. Note that both the RCA and mini plug analogue outputs are [simultaneously] active if, for some reason, such as I my case, you need to send the decoded signal to two different locations.
