Do you still own and love older audio equipment with only analog stereo inputs? The WyreStorm Express™ EXP-CON-DAC can help you connect newer gear that only has coaxial or optical digital audio outputs — like some TVs,streaming boxes, and Blu-ray/DVD players. This compact digital-to-analog converter (DAC) specializes in converting PCM digital audio signals to analog. The analog signal can easily be fed to an older sound bar, receiver/amplifier, or set of powered speakers, using a regular RCA cable.

A note about Dolby® Digital

A lot of movies and shows are mixed for Dolby Digital. This DAC won't accept Dolby Digital audio signals, so you'll have to turn Dolby "off" at the source. You can usually find that option by scrolling through your TV or player's audio settings. 

Or you can get the The WyreStorm Express™ EXP-CON-DAC-D — a DAC built specifically to handle Dolby Digital audio.

Seems to be exactly what I need at a reasonable price. [ Robert  Oct 05, 2018 ]

Recommended by your tech support "Charles". I was unable to connect the audio from my new 40" Samsung TV and my older ZVOX sound bar. Charles said this converter should do the trick. Hope he's right. I can't find a "good" sound bar to fit my space - 32". [ RALPH  Nov 13, 2017 ]
