Perfect for use with digital source devices such as AppleTV when analog audio is required. Also useful for baluns that only offer digital audio pathways - pair the 979R with a 979T at the transmission end to convert to digital audio, then back again.

Only one digital audio input may be utilized at a time - select either digital coaxial or digital optical audio.

1.33 x 3.36 x 4.25



    Q: Can the 979R convert 5.1 channel Dolby Digital or DTS signal to 2-channel analog audio?
    No - the 979R can only accept two-channel PCM as an input signal type.

    Q: My source is in Dolby Digital or DTS - how can I use the 979R?
    Go to your source's setup menu, and select "2-channel PCM" or "PCM" as the audio output mode.  You may be able to make a similar selection in a DVD's menu, but that selection will only last until a new DVD is inserted.  Make the adjustment in the player for permanent changes to be saved.
