Hello to all!
I am hoping someone can help with this.
I want to extract the audio (only) from my Apple TV so I can stream it via HDMI to my DAC, without going through the TV (so I can turn the screen off and listen to music). My DAC onlly has Toslink in. So I need something to separate the digital audio signal from the HDMo out, and run it via Toslink to my DAC. I want to keep the chain all digital to my DAC. Hope that makes sense.
I have ordered this:
My question is: does this run the digital audio straight out the toslink cable, or does some Digital-->Analog--> digital conversion happen? I ask because there is no Toslink out, instead there is a 3.5mm audio out, and an enclosed "3.5mm to SPDIF adapter."
I am pretty sure this doesn't send pure digital signal out of the 3.5mm out, and some reconversion occurs, but interested in a second opinion.
