Works very well, even better than expected. – COAXIAL DTS/AC3 5.1 Digital Audio Gear Decoder Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
2 optical inputs
1 analog input
Manual selector of the inputs
5.1 output with DTS and AC3 decoding
Works perfectly fine. I add it to my WDTV Live and now I have an easy 5.1 setup ready to go (I used to have 5.1 speakers but without any decoder so this little baby saved my life)
Cons:
No power ON/OFF (Huge mistake really, you have to unplug it or keep it on forever)
Manual selector of inputs
Other:
This baby should have a remote just to let you power it on and off and switch inputs and will be PERFECT ! Anyway, it's VERY useful for those who want DTS and AC3 decoding, no more than that. I tried several 5.1 sources without issues but if you send AAC to it, no audio will come out.
Bottomline:
VERY good. It's worthy if AC3 and DTS is exactly what you want.
