Hi Benny

I'm using my Dac with the sky box using an optical cable.
It works very well.

Cheers

Hi Benny

I'm justusing a Philips optical cable I got from the local electrical shop.
I don't know if it's worth spending anymore money for the sky box.

Let me know how u get on if you try it with your Dac.

Cheers

Thanks Craig & Matt, I don't know if connecting my bluray player would work cause I need the DAC to run the front L&R, I don't have sky...can't afford it, I had it for years until they made a couple of backsides with the bill & we didn't notice until the statements were coming in that three months in a row they double charged us....so that was that.

I use mine for my tv and bluray and streamer. The sound track on many blu-rays is superb - just make sure have the right settings on your blu-ray to get stereo out on digital.

AndyU I would like to try it...but when I'm watching a bluray I have it running through my AV amp also I'm using my Zodiac Gold's pre to control front L&R to my SCM50's, not sure how to get around it.
