    Optical to Coaxial Audio Converter?

    I have an LCD TV with no audio out apart from optical, and don't have an amp with any optical inputs, so was wondering if there's anything out there for relatively cheap that will convert to coaxial from optical?

    The TV doesn't even have a headphone output!

    thanks, yeh I just wanted to be sure because on the maplin website they have the same thing, but when people have asked the same questions about the item, maplin have said it won't do the job, so i'm a bit confused.

    Do you have one yourself? thanks

    i dont have one personally, however i looked into this thoroughly recently as i had a similar problem to you. Maplin's are carp with their answers to some of the questions asked, so i usually go by, if it says it on the tin, it will do the job X)
    At the end of the day, its all in the title/name of the item.

    Ok thanks mate i'll give it a go!

    I have the maplin one, it works just fine.

    What made you think it won't do what you need? I assume you're connecting to a digital input on an amp?
