A Penny Saved
When it comes to home theater equipment, we all want to hold onto what we’ve got. Receivers especially are built to last. Digital signals have taken over the world of audio-video technology, but any receiver purchased before the digital boom- and some purchased much later- may not have the inputs you need to take advantage of new equipment. That doesn’t mean you should have to buy expensive replacements or skip the receiver altogether. If your devices don’t have a digital audio input, the only way to integrate them into modern gadgets may be using Vanco 280533 Digital to Analog Audio Converter.
This audio converter can accept signal from USB, digital coax, or optical and a convenient switch allows you to easily select which input you are using. The signal is sent back out of the box as red and white L/R RCA and the headphone-sized 3.5mm. Set-up is simple and quick. All you need to properly install the Vanco 280533 are cables and an available wall outlet or USB power port. This converter requires an electrical source to operate, and the 5v external USB power supply is included. An additional cable may be needed if you choose to power it through USB from your computer.
This audio converter isn’t exclusively for use with older receivers! It can be used with an endless list of cable boxes, Blu-ray players, computers, and more. Keep in mind, converting from a digital signal will unfortunately reduce your channel output to the standard analog left and right stereo. Your satisfaction is guaranteed and the Vanco 280533 digital to analog audio converter comes with a one-year warranty to ensure you can get the most out of your older equipment.
