spdif connection for sound bar

I have a vizio tv and am trying to connect a sound bar to it. The vizio has a spdif output but the sound bar only accepts rca composite cable. What do I need?

  1. If the TV does not have RCA output, you could use a device like this: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-AA2SPDIF-Digital-Coaxial-Converter/dp/B0024CV3T4

    Actually I think you have it backwards. He needs a spdif input to a RCA output . something like this http://www.amazon.com/SANOXY%C2%AE-AGPtek-Digital-Optical-Converter/dp/B005DIRI6I/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1371596937&sr=1-4&keywords=spdif+to+stereo+rca

  4. jnkweaver: I think this is what I need. I have spdif output from tv and I noticed this coverter has a toslink in. What cable do I need from my spdif output from tv to toslink on converter. Thanks in advance for your help.
