DAC Digital to Analog Audio Converter Optical / Coaxial / USB

Can I use the DAC to play music on a USB flash drive through the RCA jacks into my stereo receiver? If not, what can I use to do this?

Asked by: RoyDalton
The USB input on this DAC can only be used for power or through a powered USB output, it will not accept any other type of input. The USB Media Card Reader below will accept a thumb driver or SD card and has a standard hard wired line level output.http://www.parts-express.com/mp3-usb-media-card-player-module-with-remote-control--320-350

Asked by: MIKEY1966
As long as the output on the Bose is or can be changed to PCM this will work.

I have an RCA 65" HDTV that only has digital coax cable out for external sound. I have a monster set of 2.1 Dell powered speakers I would like to hook to it. The speakers use a 3.5 mm plug (male end). Can this be plugged into the headphone output of this 

Asked by: Steve1237
Yes this DAC will work for that application as long as the TV output is PCM and not Dolby Digital.

I have a LG HDTV (55LN5700), the only audio output is digital optical. I would like to connect it with my Sony receiver/amplifier (STR-V220) (Dolby 5.1 analog). Will this converter work for me? Thanks.

Asked by: drp829
If the TV's output is PCM stereo this DAC will work fine for the application. If it will only output Dolby Digital, you will need a DAC like the one below.http://www.parts-express.com/digital-to-analog-converter-%2851-compatible%29--180-999

Does this convert Coaxial into digital audio out (optical) 

Asked by: already
Unfortunately no, this only converts digital to analog. You are looking for this instead:http://www.parts-express.com/digital-coaxial-to-toslink-optical-converter--180-960

Does anyone know if this DAC works asynchronously?

Does this DAC work asynchronously whereby it controls the flow of data from the PC over USB i.e. to eliminate or reduce jitter, or is it merely an interface designed to output analog data to RCA from a USB or SPDIF source?
Asked by: aseltzer
The manufacturer lists it as merely an interface designed to output analog data to RCA from a USB or SPDIF source.
