The Gefen GTV-DIGAUD-2-AAUD is a TV Digital Audio to Analog Adapter.
The Digital To Analog Audio converter box takes your coaxial/optical (S/PDIF or TOSLink) digital audio source and converts it to standard analog left/right audio, available for connection to an external device such as an amplifier or recording deck via standard RCA-style jacks. This product allows you to bridge your legacy sound system with digital sources such as DVD and CD players that don't have RCA-style analog outputs.
Simply run a short extension cable from an available digital audio output jack on your digital source device to the same type of digital input on the Converter. Select which kind of digital signal (coaxial or optical) is being input with the selector switch on the converter, then hook up your analog RCA-style left and right cables to the Converter's analog RCA jack outputs and power up all equipment.
Note: This product does not support audio encoded in the Dolby Digital format. Verify you can turn off Dolby Digital in the source you will be connecting to this converter. For a Dolby Digital version of this product, please click here to see the GTV-DD-2-AA.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This particular unit supports 2-channel LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation) digital audio. It does not support audio encoded in the Dolby Digital format. To use this particular model, you need to be able to turn off Dolby Digital in the source you will be connecting to.
For a Dolby Digital capable version, see the GTV-DD-2-AA, which will convert up to 5.1 channels of Dolby Digital encoded audio into analog stereo output.
Question: can I connect GTV-DIGAUD-2-AAUD from my TV RCA output directly to an external speaker
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This device is used to convert a digital audio source to an analog signal. You could connect a digital coaxial/optical (S/PDIF or TOSLink) output from a TV to the GTV-DIGAUD-2-AAUD and then connect it to the analog RCA jacks on a pair of amplified/powered speakers. The speakers would need some form of external power though.
However, we do not believe this unit can go in reverse, so unfortunately, it does not appear this device would work as desired. It would not be possible to connect an analog source device, a TV with RCA jacks for instance, to a digital output device - a set of powered/amplified speakers.
