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.

        Hooked Sonos 5 to my TV to use instead of a sound bar. Very easy. Good sound but the TV needs to be turned down with control through via the Sonos.

          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.

                I bought this D/A to use with my Rotel pre amp that doesn't have a digital input. Hooked it up in 2 minutes and it's working great. Sounds good and saved me from buying a new pre amp. Good low cost solution.

                    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.

                          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 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.

                                        This device was very easy to set up and get my sound through my headphones like I wanted. Directions were very clear and intuitive. I would recommend this product.

                                          I had purchased a new TV that only has a digital S/PDIF output, but needed to attach headphones. I liked this product because it can powered from one of the TVs USB ports and there is the option of RCA or mini-jack output. The only catch is that you need to set your TV to output a PCM audio signal, which is fine.

                                          Some time ago I got an Apple TV and was surprised to see that the only audio out ports were optical and HDMI. I have an older receiver that doesn't have such connectors. The D03K was an easy fix to my problem and MUCH cheaper than updating my receiver!

                                          The only "problem" I have now is that there seem to be a very slight delay between the sound coming out of the TV set and the receiver. I don't care much because I mainly use it for audio but if you're after a home theatre solution, this could be a problem.

                                            I got this tiny D->A converter so I could run TV audio into my stereo. So now I hear my shows with 7 additional speakers! The sound from the TV was weak and struggled with low bass, so this situation is a great improvement. The Fiio is very easy to set up and use, as long as your TV supports PCM digital audio. That's required. In most cases, you will also need a TOSLINK fiber optic cable.
                                            Uses a USB cable to hook up to a power supply. I'm pleased so far. Let's hope it lasts.

                                              Works as advertised. Used for an AppleTV on an old stereo receiver that does not have digital inputs. Just plug it in and it works.

                                                This works exactly as advertised. I needed to boost the audio out of a TV in my office. The TV only had a digital output, and the office only had a set of powered computer speakers with a mini jack. Three simple connections and I was up and running.

                                                    Works great but did not resolve the problem of no audio control from the coaxial digital output from the TV.
