    EXP-CON-DAC-D Digital to Analog Audio Converter with Dolby Downmix is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from wrong reletive volume: 5.1 to 2.0 vs 2.0 to 2.0 Let me tell you that the three Dolby approved outboard Dolby downmix DACs in the US market are all unasable: Gefen GTV-DD-2-AA, Wyrestorm EXP-CON-DAC-D, and MuxLab 500088. I have experience with multiple products for each model. Gefen GTV-DD-2-AA and Wyrestorm EXP-CON-DAC-D produced too quiet audio when it does Dolby 5.1 to stereo 2.0 downmix compared to when it does 2.0 to 2.0. MuxLab 500088 produces louder audio to the point of clipping when it does Dolby 5.1 to stereo 2.0 downmix. Wyrestorm EXP-CON-DAC-D also has left right reversed. MuxLab 500088 develops audible high pitch acoustic noise after about one month of use. You can compare there three products to the Dolby 5.1 to stereo 2.0 downmixer built in a big companies' Blu-ray player or DVD palyer (Sony, LG, etc.). You will feel that those big name products are doing the correct Dolby downmix, while the three outboard DACs, Gefen GTV-DD-2-AA, Wyrestorm EXP-CON-DAC-D, and MuxLab 500088 are doing the job wrong. If you want measured data, you can use specific loud passage of a DVD you have, or use the sound measurement track in Disney WOW DVD.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Left Right swapped Left and Right channels are swapped. Left channel sound comes from the red RCA analogue audio output socket with R mark. I had the same defect in four Wyrestorm EXP-CON-DAC-D products in a row. The 3rd one was from B&H.
