RCA Spdif to optical Spdif

RCA Spdif to optical Spdif

I would like to connect the RCA Spdif output of a Digital MPA II to the Spdif input of an Audient ID22.
Unfortunatly the MPA uses RCA and the Audient Optical.

I'm looking for a RCA -> Optical converter which works.

I use an M-Audio C02 for that task. Not glamorous but it does the job. Not made anymore but it shouldn't be too hard to find one on ebay or somewhere similar.

Thanks for your answers.
There are many available but it's good to know the ones which work correctly.

And if you need several digital I/O conversions at once, there are more elaborate devices out there. On the cheap....and they're audio interfaces, but can also be used in a stand-alone mode. For just conversion, you can buy a used Motu 2408 'I' on eBay for about $50. On the oldest 'I' it's analog I/I's are only 20 bit, but their digital I/O's are 24 bit, great if you're only using it in a stand-alone mode for the digital for conversion. They have 3 Toslink/adat I/O's & a pair of s/pdif I/O. Then there's the MOTU 308, which has more s/pdif I/O's.
