The ODL-276A from Hosa is an inexpensive solution to digital connectivity. The unit is a high quality, digital link, allowing simultaneous transfer of two channels of digital-audio in either or both directions between S/PDIF on TosLink optical connectors and S/PDIF on RCA coaxial.
Some manufacturers' DAWs, sound cards or DAT recorders have only S/PDIF optical outputs and some offer only S/PDIF coaxial inputs, or vice versa. The ODL-276A offers a simple solution for making transfers without leaving the digital realm.
This unit will not enable transfer of second generation recordings that have been protected by S.C.M.S. (Serial Copy Management System.)
Note: Optical connectors are not compatible with the Alesis optical format.
Transfers optical S/PDIF digital audio signals to coaxial S/PDIF digital audio and vice versa
Simultaneous conversion in both directions if needed
Tracks remain in the digital realm - no resampling required
