I tried connecting my Comcast Cable box's Toslink to my DAC and it would not work, regardless of the box settings it would only send 5.1 Bitstream to my DAC. That said I connected my TV Tomlin to the DAC. I set the TV to down mix to stereo and it works perfectly. The TV's DAC uses a sample rate convertor to upscale everything to 24/48k, this was proven by playing a CD through my OPPO 103 via HDMI to the TV. The TV in turn takes that 44.1k data and outputs 48k via Toslink to my DAC. Cable content sounds pretty good regardless of being converted......obviously Blu Ray and Netflix sound better but i'm fine with the way cable sounds. What I didn't expect is that the cable box attenuates the volume in the digital domain, the TV does not.
