                  Disappointing. Only converts one way - coax to optical. After describing issue to store employee, I bought the item on his recommendation only to find I needed another device that converts fronm optical to coaxial. Boo.

                      Easy to hook up. A great way to use otherwise non-compatible equipment within the home theater environment.Some complained about the light plastic case, but that is what you want to install inside the TV/Stereo cabinetI shopped around and Radio Shack has by far the best price [...]

                          My previous DVD recorder had a Toslink fiber optical connection to play Dolby Digital sound. When it needed to be replaced, the new unit had an RCA coaxial output instead. This device and a short RCA male to male cable put my new DVD recorder into full service. I have Dolby Digital sound again. The low price [...]made this the perfect purchase.
