Anyone used a HDMI to stereo rca adapter

If so were there any issues and can you recommend one -

My brand new tv doesn't have rca out, only hdmi and optical and my preamp doesn't accept anything besides rca


Why don’t you list the brand and model of your TV. I doubt your TV has HDMI output as that is rare. I just looked a some top end TV's and none have HDMI output. Some have a 1/8 mini audio out or digital out that can be used.

I double checked and I believe tls49 is correct.  The TV is a Sony KDL-50W800C and the manual talks about HDMI to receiver using ARC, but it is an HDMI in, not out. 

There is a digital audio out (optical) so I can use the FiiO that dbtom2 recommended 

Sorry for all of the confusion, it should be obvious that I am not up to speed with current technology - hell I still use tubes :)

Hi R Burke,

I was in the same boat a couple of months back--just got my first flat screen, and I still use tubes too. I ended up getting this:

It works well.
