The CYP AU-D3-192 opens up a fantastic improvement in sound quality from your TV or PC! Within its tiny case you'll find an improved DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) that has the ability to sample at 192kHz!
Digital to analogue converter Most TVs are now equipped with a digital output. Many hi-fi systems won't accept a digital signal and therefore you need a digital to analogue convertor. The CYP AUD3192 does exactly that and lets you access the highest quality sound output from your TV.
Upgrade your PC's sound Alternatively, connect the CYP AUD-3-192 to your old PC, CD player, or DVD player's digital output and you'll benefit from the latest DAC technology. The audio quality is likely to sound more natural and detailed - depending upon the quality of the original unit's DAC.
For a great big upgrade from a tiny little box, the CYP AU-D3-192 packs a powerful punch.

Tiny but brilliant solution to achieve quality audio performanceRecently purchased the excellent Panasonic TX-40D 700B television and DMP UB 700 Player. I required audio link up to my Teac Reference 500 amplifier , serving QAcoustic 2020 speakers. This little device has provided an excellent solution, delivering superb sound from source through the system. Much to my relief, and avoiding the expense and challenges of finding the right sound bar or surround system . Do note Converter uses a mains power plug, and not a USB connection via the television, as in some alternative devices advertised on line

Great Little DACBought this DAC as a cheap option to connect my new LG TV to an old NAD amplifier.
They guy in the shop was really helpful and advised this little DAC as a good starting point, due to the optical audio output on my TV. I connected it straight up and it sounds great, really brings the TV sound alive. The sound quality is great through my hifi, it's such a huge improvement over the standard TV speakers.
The DAC was really simple to connect up - a great cheap addition to any home TV/Hifi setup.

Great little gadgetThis product is ideal for me, as my New TV did not have an AUX Out so couldn't link it up with my older equipment, now I can and all is good.

Sound output problemsI bought the CYP AU-D3-192 from Richer Sounds and used it to connect my new LG 4K TV to my Arcam amplifier to improve the sound quality. I tried both the supplied PSU, just using a USB cable to a YouView box and also a different 1A USB charger. Powering the DAC using a USB cable to the YouView box produced audio output but unfortunately it struggled to maintain a consistent output level - the sound volume kept varying while in use. I then tried the supplied PSU and that seemed to work fine but then I started noticing small dips in the sound volume every few minutes - these dips were not reproduceable but occurred frequently enough to be annoying. I also tried a different 1A USB charger and that had the same problem. I don't know if my particular unit was faulty or whether there was some issue with the way my LG TV sends the optical digital ouput that was causing problems.
