Transmitter for Toslink and Coax S/PDIF audio [ TVs etc. ]
Talisa is a transmitter for TV. Talisa connects to a digital audio output, common on TVs, called S/PDIF. S/PDIF output also shows up on gear other than TVs. DVD and Blu-ray players, for example. A number of computers have it too and so do many high-end music players. Some of these have their S/PDIF output in optical format and others in electrical format. Talisa works with both. What a keener.
If you’re so inclined, you can teach your Talisa how to listen to your TV remote control — your remote will then control Volume and Mute of all SKAA speakers you’ve got bonded to your Talisa.
Talisa's audio connector is dual purpose. I know it looks like a 3.5 mm headphone jack, but watch out, it’s not that at all. It’s actually a dual format S/PDIF input jack. The optical flavour of S/PDIF is usually called Toslink — Talisa supports it. The electrical flavour of S/PDIF is usually called Coax — Talisa supports that too. S/PDIF stands for Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format, after its two inventors. Boy-oh-boy was that ever a bad coin toss for Philips — in a parallel universe this thingy is called P/SDIF. Anyway, It’s pure digital audio. We like it because it moves the audio from your TV (or whatever that thingamabobber is you’ve got spewing out S/PDIF) into Talisa completely unaltered — a pristine, unmucked-with digital audio stream.
