About the WyreStorm Express™ EXP-CON-DAC-D Digital-to-Analog Converter

The WyreStorm Express™ EXP-CON-DAC-D is a compact digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that specializes in converting Dolby® Digital audio signals to stereo. Unlike typical stereo-only DACs, it accepts up to 5.1-channel audio encoded in Dolby Digital surround from sources like a Blu-ray/DVD player, computer, or Apple TV®. It's a great solution for any source with a coaxial or Toslink optical digital audio output. Multichannel signals are downmixed to standard analog stereo audio. Once in analog stereo, the signals can easily be fed to a receiver, amplifier, recorder, or powered speakers.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
Decision totally based on Crutchfield recommendation. [ Glenn  Feb 05, 2019 ]

1 question already asked

Can the output (analog) be successfully connected to the AUX input on a stereo preamp?
[ Laurence  Apr 07, 2019 ]
1 answer
yes, it works perfectly for me. I couldn't find a single supplier in Knoxville that had this product I was able to use the RCA inputs and the auxiliary inputs on my stereo preamp. I'm no longer using mine and it's been too long for me to return it. You should reach out. I'll be happy to send it to you. Thanks, Shawn Kitts. I'm easily found on Facebook
