      Works Like a Charm

      Bought my first of these cables to connect an Airport Express to a A/V receiver via an optical input on the receiver. Using this for a couple of things. One is Bought my first of these cables to connect an Airport Express to a A/V receiver via an optical input on the receiver. Using this for a couple of things. One is to run Airplay from my main Mac to a this room, 2nd is to use airplay off my phone or iPad when I am in the room to play music. It works wonderful. Sound quality is really very good. Great little tool. Am now ordering the 2nd one which I will use at the office to connect my Macbook pro to a ZVOX sound system. Then I can run my music from iTunes and get some good quality sound. This will beat a bluetooth solution by a country mile.

      You can use this cable to connect your Airport Express to your home stereo (or theater) receiver if You can use this cable to connect your Airport Express to your home stereo (or theater) receiver if your receiver has an optical (AKA Toslink) digital input. Apple Support has a How-To article about it, search for "How to set up and configure AirPort Express for AirPlay and iTunes" The 3.5 mm output on the Airport Express is both analog and mini-Toslink optical, just like on a Mac. The Airport Express has an internal Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) which provides the signal for the analog output. Experts report that the internal DAC sounds good, especially in early versions of the Express. My experience agrees with this. The DAC is however limited to CD quality output (16-bit PCM encoding at 44.1 kHz sampling rate) which means if you send it a higher resolution encoding it will be down sampled to 16-bit/44.1 kHz. Whether to use the analog or digital connection to your receiver also depends on the quality of the DAC in your receiver (it has a DAC if it has any digital inputs). When you use the optical cable to connect the Express to either a receiver or an external DAC+amplifier you bypass the Express' internal DAC and the external DAC receives the unconverted digital signal. If the receiver's DAC or external DAC is of higher quality/capability than the internal Express DAC you may be able to hear the difference. You can experiment with both the analog and digital out from Express to receiver to see which you prefer.

    • do I have to use the optical output for sound or is there another alternative?

      You'll need some kind of conversion for the audio signal, either an analog audio output from your TV You'll need some kind of conversion for the audio signal, either an analog audio output from your TV (which might convert the digital audio that it receives over the HDMI cable), or a little box that converts the optical audio signal to stereo RCA signals. The converter box is about the size of a deck of cards, costs about $40. One caveat here is that the cheapest converter boxes will only convert stereo, not the 5.1 or 7.1 dolby. You have to pay up $ if you want a converter box to do more than stereo. This means that movie sources that don't let you opt for stereo audio might not work with the cheap converter box. That might work if you rely on your TV for movie sound. good luck, matthew
