Digital Coaxial to dual wire speaker Tags: Speakers Audio Last response: February 11, 2012 6:13 PM in Home Audio Share jwroolie February 11, 2012 5:33:09 AM Hello, I have a odd question. I have a receiver that has digital coaxial outputs for each of my speakers but my speakers only have dual wire inputs. Can I easily convert my speakers to accept the digital coaxial inputs?

Are you sure they are designed to feed speakers? What kind of receiver? The only digital output that I am aware of is the S/PDIF output which is a low level multichannel electrical (coax) or optical (TOSLINK) output: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S/PDIF The S/PDIF output would need to be decoded and amplified (something that already happens in your receiver) to drive the speakers. They cannot drive speakers directly. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumDigital Coaxial to dual wire speakers ForumAble to use Speaker Wire for Digital Coaxial audio?
