    useful thing

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It's a small, handy thing. I use it to convert the optical signal from my PS3, to analog surround. At first I was a bit sceptical as it was really cheap, and decoding dolby & dts requires licenses. However, it proved to do it's job. However, when first...
    Cons:
    - toslink cable that came with it was worthless. Stiff as hell (it remained in the form it came with when I released the zip ti...

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

    Pros:
    Decoder does the thing-I wanted to use PS3 with my 5.1 analog audio system, and now I'm using it. Also, operation of this device is totally silent, and I like it; my previous amplifier was giving annoying sound while idle (or working).
    Cons:
    First and main con. is crappy, totally awful postproccessing of sound from 3.5 mm jack(on right of front panel). Impossible to ...
