3.5mm to Coaxial adapter for Blu Ray player

bruteshot 1,088 96 June 16, 2013 at 12:22 PM
My sound bar connects to it's sources via 3.5mm cable. To my cable box I have the RCA red/white adapter. The blu ray player has only a single coaxial out (my old blu ray had the component + RCA for audio out, why are all the new blu ray players only having HDMI and coaxial connections??). I looked around some and it seems the adapters exist, but I would like the opinion of someone who may already have this setup.

Thanks.

Perhaps it's your phraseology, but I can't believe that your Bluray player only has a coax out. Otherwise, how the heck does the image get to the TV?
Maybe you mean that the coax on your Bluray is the only audio out option you have?
Is that what you're saying?
Is it a digital or analog output?
Could you post the make and model of the device?

I was speaking of audio out connections, it has HDMI as well. PHILIPS BDP2105/F7 is the model.

Thanks for that info.
Are you looking to go direct to the sound bar from your Bluray player?
If so, that would leave you without audio from your TV when watching anything but the Bluray player.
How does your system connect now?
Is the audio output to the input of your sound bar, coming from your TV or a receiver?
Would an adapter like this [amazon.com], solve your problem?
Input digital coax. Output, two single channel RCA and one stereo 3.5 headphone type output.

Thanks for being thorough with the questions, as I've not been with mine. The sound bar has three inputs, all 3.5mm and they are directly to their source, not through a receiver or TV. Cable box is on input 1, blu ray player will be on input 2, and we have nothing on input 3. That is something I was looking at, but was also wondering if something cheaper like this would work.

I think not.
The Bluray player's audio out is in digital form, so it has to be run through a D/A converter to get it into analog, so that you can plug it into your speaker system.
In other words, it's more than just a connector issue.
