I have an old system for audio only that I am happy with.
Recently I got my first LED HDTV and find the sound from the internal speakers to be pretty pitiful.
I wanted to output the audio from the TV to my audio receiver so I tried a Gefen GTV-DD-2-AA optical Dolby 5.1 to l/r analog audio converter. After going through two of them and a lot of phone calls I gave up on it.
I could buy an av receiver, but I really just want to get the sound to my system speakers.
Does anyone know if any manufacturer makes an audio amp that will take a 5.1 optical input and give me 2 or more speaker connections?
I'll even take an automotive amp and get a 12vdc supply if that will work.
