    A mate of mine wants to connect his Alba DVD player (which only has a digital coax output) to his Yamaha amp (which only has an optical digital input).

    Is there a cable or 'magic box' which will do this?

    Cheers

    There is indeed a 'magic box' available at Lektropacks .

    Ain't cheap though (good stuff never is), but I have assurance first hand that it is a quality piece of hardware.
