I want to start this post by saying I'm new to these connections. I know the standard 2.5mm, 3.5mm, RCA's, etc but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to anything beyond.
Question concerns connecting an Xbox 360's S/PDIF (or is it TOSLINK?) to a Yamaha CA-1010. I see that there are S/PDIF to RCA converters, is this what I would want to be looking at? Is there going to be a large difference in sound quality depending on how much I spend on this converter? Are there any other ways to achieve connecting these together? My TV doesn't have audio out so I can't rely on using HDMI to the TV with RCA's from the TV to the receiver.
I'm currently using one of these to get the RCA's to the receiver.
along with HDMI going to the TV for picture. It's not that I'm not happy with how it's all hooked up right now it's that the new Xbox One is right around the corner which will no longer have this option. It will be HDMI and S/PDIF only, so I would rather be ready for it now.
Thanks for any input!
