Audio Authority 977TPO Coaxial to TOSLink Optical Digital Audio Converter Notice that there is a removable protective cap installed in the optical output port.
The Audio Authority 977TPO Coaxial to TOSLink Optical Digital Audio Converter gives you optical compatibility when and where you need it. The 977TPO optical adapter can be connected in-line between otherwise incompatible units, providing flawless conversion from PCM coaxial signals to optical signals.
Unlike some of the lesser digital audio converters that you may have seen, the 977TPO can
handle virtually any digital audio signal that travels on digital coax or digital optical audio
cables, so, for example, it can easily handle
24 bit / 96 KHz signals.
This small device provides an elegant solution to a number of vexing problems. For example, suppose that you have a digital audio source, such as a DVD player, that is equipped only with an coaxial digital output, but your receiver, processor, or other device does not have a free coaxial input. Another great application is in cases where custom install wiring is already in place, or for long custom runs. Use the companion 977RPO to convert to coaxial, then use this 977TPO to convert back to optical.
There are many possible scenarios, but with this device, there is no problem - just hook it up! We also offer the Audio Authority 977RPO (mentioned above) to convert optical digital audio to coaxial digital audio
All conversion is done in the digital domain, so there is no signal loss or distortion. Nothing is added to or removed from the signal, so you can expect the output sound to be a bit for bit perfect replica of the input sound.
As you can see in the picture, the package includes the 977TPO device itself, a TOSLink optical digital cable, documentation sheet, and a power supply, factory packed in the box as shown.
Like most Audio Authority products, the Model 977TPO comes with a one year limited warranty from the manufacturer. The B-Stock Unit also comes with a one year limited warranty.
This simple, reliable converter transcodes from digital coaxial to optical format.
Many digital audio components cannot be connected (digitally) to one another because different manufacturers use different input/output formats (TosLink®/Optical or Coax). Audio Authority's Model 977 Series solves the problem by allowing you to convert digital signals from Coax to Optical or vice versa. The 977T (Transmitter) converts a Coax signal to an Optical signal. No matter what type of digital audio, Audio Authority can make it work.
Dimensions (H x W x D): 1.5 x 2.1 x 2.1 inches
This is the input side of the device - connect this side to your coaxial digital source with an RCA-type coaxial digital cable. The RCA type input is the orange jack on the left, and the power connector is on the right.
The package includes the 977TPO device itself, TOSLink optical cable, and universal power supply.
