Control

Control:
"Installed easily, but volume is low, I have a inline volume control, but it is at it max, dont know if FiiO is the problem or my inline volume control?"
_
"Only reason for not giving 5 stars is, I am not able to control the volume output with my TV remote."
_
"The only problem is we can't control the sound with the tv remote like we did before."
_
"Unfortunately, I can only adjust the volume by the speaker controls and not the TV volume controls, but the converter does what it's supposed to do."
_
"The fault is mine in naively assuming I'd have control over the kind of audio put out by the TV."
_
"This thing doesn't have a volume control, which in this case renders it pretty much useless, since the TV's volume level has no effect on the volume in the earphones."
_
"Installed easily, but volume is low, I have a inline volume control, but it is at it max, dont know if FiiO is the problem or my inline volume control?"
_
"That being said, I have some wireless headphones that have volume control on them and that works great."
_
"The only thing that I would have liked for it to have but it doesn't is volume control."

Dolby

Dolby:
"This setup bypasses the 'set your TV to pcm problem' and the Dolby digital decoding problem noted by some of the reviewers."
_
"The critical step that I had missed was to go into the Sony TV audio menu and change from: Dolby audio- Yes change to: Dolby audio- No."
_
"many TV's can only send out Dolby Digital, this converter is not able to handle that signal."
_
"Just beware that it doesn't decode Dolby Digital, so make sure you set your TV to digital PCM out."
_
"Works on the local channels, but the cable provider transmits the HD cable channels with Dolby audio, which this is not compatible with."
_
"It is important to observe the caveat that this supports Dolby surround only and not PCM."
_
"Hers was a little more expensive and I didn't need Dolby capability, so I was happy with mine."
_
"Then I remembered to shut off the Dolby mode on the TiVo, and the tv audio came out great."
_
"Well there are no settings for changing the DTV signal on the TV to PCM because the broadcasters are the ones who choose to broadcast in Dolby because it is the most compatible format."
_
"Read the directions if you need to, but if you're using this for your Apple TV, I'll just say this: be sure to set Dolby Digital to off in Settings and you're good to go."
_
"The lack of Dolby digital support is not that big of a problem as long as your TV can decode the dolby stream and output PCM, which the Samsung can."

_
"Good product, fit my need perfectly."
_
"Feel comfortable, fold up to fit in the included pouch, charge pretty fast, and sound fantastic!"
_
"The beauty of this device is that it came with the optical cable so that you didn't have to do any additional searching for a cable to fit this device as well as the Amazon Fire TV."
_
"The converter is pretty small, and fits well behind your equipment (you can secure it with a small piece of Velcro)."

Level

Level:

_
"Even with them, television Audio was a problem; echoes and inconsistent sound levels."
_
"only downside is the tv's optical audio output is line level--the tv's remote does not change the volume of the stereo."
_
"Good clean line level audio for my Presonus monitor speakers"
_
"While a very high end stereo would likely want a more audiophile quality DAC, the sound quality is extremely good at this level."
_
"Simply an outstanding experience at every level."
_
"This thing doesn't have a volume control, which in this case renders it pretty much useless, since the TV's volume level has no effect on the volume in the earphones."
_
"Needed this to work with some Sony RF headphones for my mom who was starting to have a hard time hearing the TV when it was @ reasonable levels for everyone else,and this item connected those headphones to our Samsung TV via the TV's optical output."

Music

Music:
"My Philips died and I took the cheap way out with a 720p Samsung 51 inch which advertised analog out as one of its features...they lied;The only audio out was the Toslink digital...So I ordered this converter and connected it to the same analog amp...I don't know if the TV or the converter is at fault but...the audio is kinda crappy if your into music...and just OK for everything else."

Plug

Plug:
"No issues, pretty much plug and play and the sound quality is a large leap in quality compared to the TV."
_
"I was so frustrated that my nice new TV didn't have a plug for an ear jack (what were the TV makers thinking?"
_
"Couldn't be easier, essentially a plug and play and it's fantastic that it's USB powered as I have it powered through my Xbox so the converter only turns on when the Xbox is on (only when it's needed)."
_
"My only complaint and it's super minor, is how flimsy the plug power adapter is when plugged in on a power strip."

Power

Power:
"It wasn't until I realized that the power adaptor that was sent with the product was faulty that I got this DAC to work."
_
"One potential downside -- the power cable is a bit short, but it's just a mini USB cable (with a wall adapter) so you can purchase a longer one if you need it."
_
"So just beware the power cord is just 3 feet, but the good news is that it's a standard kind of power cord (like those used for video cameras, more expensive cameras, external drives, etc), so you could order buy a longer cord just about anywhere (not a regular cell phone cord, but the power cord that looks similar to them).My biggest issue was not with this product, but I'm mentioning it here as a compatibility warning."
_
"My only complaint and it's super minor, is how flimsy the plug power adapter is when plugged in on a power strip."
_
"I like that it uses mini USB for power because if need be I could use a few different cell phone chargers I have lying around in case this one fails as opposed to others that use a proprietary power unit."
_
"I had to use a USB hub to plug in my Chromcast into the TV as well, but it powers both devices perfectly."
_
"That it comes with an adequate power supply and optical cable is icing on the cake."
_
"Connected my apple tv to my power amp with no problems."
_
"I am able to power the device directly from a USB port on the TV which is great because the device is only on when the TV is on, which I suspect will greatly extend it's life."
_
"The AC power converter that came with it doesn't work but it seems to be able to use any AC -> USB power converter."

"Not only could she hear the TV in great fidelity but she could hear the radio, CD player, DVD player (hooked directly to the TV) and Apple TV (hooked directly to the TV)."
_
"ONLY problem is if you forget to turn off the radio (or whatever you are sending sound to) when you turn off the TV (or whatever audio source), when you turn the TV back on you get a loud whizzing static sound for a couple of seconds while (I presume) the box figures out the signal."
_
"This is a difficult piece of hardware to find; at least, Radio Shack and Best Buy didn't have it and weren't sure what it was."
_
"I ran the RCA cable to my old Technicsreceiver and it sounds great for about half the cost of one from Radio Shack."

"The speakers only support analog which was a problem for my PS4."
_
"It is important to observe the caveat that this supports Dolby surround only and not PCM."
_

_
"This was a significant problem as my Wife has been using TV Ears due to a hearing problem and the TV ears only support RCA connectivity."
_
"It work perfectly fine, but there is a little problem it doesn't support any surround sound."
_
"It works, decent sound quality, but doesn't support dts, dolby digital and other encodes."
_
"So due to the great quality of this product and the excellent quality of the customer support and technical team, I would highly recommend buying from this company."
_
"The lack of Dolby digital support is not that big of a problem as long as your TV can decode the dolby stream and output PCM, which the Samsung can."
_

Volume

Volume:
"Installed easily, but volume is low, I have a inline volume control, but it is at it max, dont know if FiiO is the problem or my inline volume control?"
_
"Only reason for not giving 5 stars is, I am not able to control the volume output with my TV remote."
_
"The only thing that this device is missing is a volume switch, but I turn down the volume in a game's option menu so it's not a huge deal."
_
"Unfortunately, the optical signal's volume does not change with the TV volume."
_
"Unfortunately, I can only adjust the volume by the speaker controls and not the TV volume controls, but the converter does what it's supposed to do."
_
"Volume on the headset does not change even if the TV volume is changed, so that is really nice."
_
"Would be great if this thing had a volume knob on it but otherwise works as it should."
_
"Unfortunately it wasn't what I needed to be able to use my earphones (I'm very hard of hearing) on my lg smart tv and also have volume from the tv as well so others in the room can also enjoy tv so had to return it."
_
"I was led to believe that I would be able to adjust the volume on my Bose Companion 2 speakers by using my Samsung TV remote control as long as I used the Optical Audio Out connection on the TV."
_
"This thing doesn't have a volume control, which in this case renders it pretty much useless, since the TV's volume level has no effect on the volume in the earphones."
