Today’s high-end cable devices use HDMI connections to deliver high-definition video quality with 5.1 surround sound. This is the case, for example, with Home Cinema systems, digital cable decoders, audio receivers or HDTVs.
However, if you don’t have a cable for these connections, you can always use a digital coaxial cable to convert this signal. Next, we will explain the steps for converting the digital signal to 5.1 sound.
How to convert digital coaxial signal to 5.1 sound
We begin with the first step
First of all, the digital coaxial cable must be positioned on the back of the decoder with the digital cable or Blu-ray or DVD player. If you have knowledge of the subject, you will see that there is a unique RCA entry, where ‘Digital coaxial‘ is read. This digital coaxial cable will be distinguished from the rest of the wiring by its orange color.
Next, we take the other end of the coaxial connector and connect it to the back of the audio receiver or home theater audio system. If you look again, you will see an RCA cable entry on the back of the device with a ‘Digital Coaxial‘ label.
Switch to the configuration part
This is when you have to turn on the player you are going to use, either DVD or Blu-ray, or even a digital cable decoder. At the same time, you will also need to have your TV on. To complete the entire connection, you must also switch on the surround sound receiver 5.1 or the home theatre system.
In short, we must turn on all the transmitters and receivers that are going to intervene in the signal conversion. It is recommended to follow the order indicated above so that unnecessary sounds are not coupled and it is tested if the implantation has been done well.
Now you must take the remote control or remote control system that comes with your home theatre system or audio receiver. Then, you must search and choose the secondary entrance. This input corresponds to the digital coaxial audio. If you look for it, as a general rule, in most systems this button will be referred to as ‘SA-CD/CD‘.
Finally, you should look for the menu option in your remote control or remote control device. Sometimes the menu can be found directly on the audio receiver itself or in the Home Theatre system. Once selected, the volume of each speaker can be adjusted individually. This independent operation prevents undesirable noise from occurring after the connection has been made to work.
As you can see, it is very easy to perform the necessary steps for converting digital coaxial signal to 5.1 sound. Therefore, I recommend that you do not hesitate to try it, because you will be able to improve the audio system of your device and feel that the sound of your favorite content is part of you and, of course, if you have any questions, you can contact us at any time.
