Yes, I have a new Blu-ray player with only the orange digital audio output. I want to connect a set of powered computer speakers (with subwoofer) that have a 3.5mm connector.
What is the simplest way to do this?
Is digital to analog conversion required?
Can I use my old RF modulator for that?
What would happen if I use this (http/www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=134172&Q=&is=REG&A=details) simple RCA to 3.5mm converter?
I was hoping to get away with using that small adapter and the amp in the speakers converting the digital signal to analog. I guess not, eh?
I surely don't want to buy a $60 converter just to play music discs from my $40 player.
I was hoping to use the old RF modulator I have, but rigging up two custom cables would be too costly.
Upon further research, I find I can get a $20 converter if I don't need surround sound. I will have to fiddle with the player's configuration to force its audio output to be 2 channel PCM. Then I have to watch out for the super cheap model that only goes to 96kHz, I need to get the box that goes to 192kHz. Should work, I hope.
