neo: P8-DAC - Digital to Analogue Format Converter (P8-DAC)

neo: P8-DAC Digital Audio to Analogue Audio Format Converter (P8-DAC)

With the Pulse-eight P8-DAC digital to analogue audio converter, audio setups are capable of decoding connected S/PDIF coaxial or TOSLINK optical digital audio sources to standard analogue stereo (L/R) audio.

Stereo output signals can then be fed to external devices such as an amplifier, Hi-Fi, recording deck, or powered speakers via standard phono style (RCA) jacks.

The P8-DAC is a simple to install, low-cost solution for audio conversion requirements. It ensures a reliable transition from modern digital sources, such as DVD and Blu-Ray players or AppleTV, to analogue sound systems.

With both inputs and outputs for coaxial and optical connections, the P8-DAC provides the perfect cost effective yet high quality solution for audio conversion requirements.
