WyreStorm Express™ Digital to Analogue Audio Converter

Part Number EXP-CON-DAC

The WyreStorm Audio DAC allows any Digital PCM audio signal to be converted to a stereo analogue signal for connection to AVR, Hi-Fi or almost any other analogue audio device. 

Key Features:

  • Compact design 
  • Optical & Digital Coaxial inputs 
  • Converts PCM digital audio from a compatible device to analogue stereo audio 
  • Input Select switch 
  • LED Power indication

Overview

The WyreStorm Express EXP-CON-DAC is a digital to analogue audio converter capable of decoding connected S/PDIF coaxial or TOSLINK optical digital audio sources to standard analogue stereo (L/R) audio with inputs selectable via onboard input select switch.  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. 

If quick, reliable and cost effective conversion of digital audio to analogue is a requirement for your project, the EXP-CON-DAC makes it incredibly easy to connect modern digital sources, such as AppleTV, Blu-Ray/DVD, DAB, digital computer audio to a legacy analogue sound system without requiring expensive additional conversion equipment.
