    My receiver has nothing but optical inputs left and I need to hook my LD player up, but it has only coax outputs.
    Where can I buy a coax to digital converter? I really didn't want to spend all that much for it (hoping for under $50).
    Thanks!

    Both mcmelectronics.com and partsexpress.com carry them.
    Search this forum too. There have been other threads like this in the past.

    You can search for my user name, as I posted this very same question here not that long ago. I ended up getting my coax to toslink adapter from SoundProfessionals, they are more expensive than PartsExpress, but PartsExpress did not have power supply in stock and did not have a date on when they will get it. With SoundProfessional, the converter and power supply with UPS ground was just under $32, and you need to get your own coax and toslink cables, and yes, it does work, and quite well.
