Connectivity limitations and workarounds


Unregistered guest
Hi all,

I am considering purchasing a sony DAVSC6 ( d=21635 ) for using as primarily a speaker system to power my PC, PS2, and maybe in future Ipod or other device via AUX. As far as the aux line goes im not sure if the system has one but that is a subsiduary problem atm.

As far as I can see the only line in connectivity this system provides is 1x optical digital in and Audio Line In x 2 (which im assuming is analog?)

So what I need to know is there any workaround based double adapters or convertors available in order to establish a second digital in connection to the system? My pc has an optical connection, coaxial connection as well as 3 8 cannel IO jacks so I could use any of these.

The optical connection in the system will be used by the PS2, 1x audio line in will be used by the ipod/portable device, which leaves me with 1 digital connection needed for the HTPC

Hopefully there is some way I can do this without have to unplug the optical connection every time I want to change between pc/PS2 and if there is an adaptor solution hopefully it can allow both inputs to coexist without having to manually change a selector switch or similar.

Thanks for any info

Hi there,

To be honest, if you aren't using the PS2 as a DVD player, it really doesn't need a digital connection. I've not seen a single game claim to have discrete sound effects. They generally either come in stereo or ProLogic (or PL II).
Therefore, you just need a cable from the PS2 AV connector that has L & R RCA outs. Here's an example:
I found this by searching for "PS2 av leads" on google.
This should be the cheapest way to achieve your ends.
The more expensive way is to get an optical connection switcher like this: y=7m1
