I’d like to use my ol’ appleTV w/ optical output to burn-in some hours on a new DAC with coax S/PDIF input (spare my CDP from spinning for a week strait), so I’m looking for a good converter to do this with... want a good one but would love a quick Amazon Prime order to get a movin’.
Or does it even matter here? Cheap conversion is a cheap conversion.

Thanks!

Yeah, that’s probably the one. But if there was a far better one buried on web somewhere, I could be tempted.

Oh yeah! I forgot about the iPurifier. I checked em out earlier in the year for something else. Thanks for the reminder, rodge.

Glass is better than plastic...Wireworld and Lifatec have worked well for me.
