GL. I have been looking for months for one of these to use with a CDX-C910 without any luck. I remember there was one listed early in the summer on Ebay, but the seller wanted like $200 + for it.

Who'd think this small, relatively simple adaptor would be so hard to track down... Come on guys, dig deep into the stashes!

hope he has one. I can wait since I am going with Alpine HU and PXA. :D
That makes 2 of us :) I have other HU options on hand, but have really wanted to run this C90 for awhile now...

Unfortunately, no. The processor has optical in, but I need the adaptor for the HU to provide optical out. Here's a pic of the adaptor.
the adaptor is needed to convert the digital coax output into optical output. From the D210 or D211 a normal toslink optical cable can be used.

Hey guys,

Had the same problem. Managed to tackle it by soldering a coaxial lead directly on the main board (my C90 was half broken, so could take a risk).

Coax or optical, both use the spdif protocol so you can just use a simple adpater from ebay with it. Search for "Coax Coaxial to Optical SPDIF Toslink Converter Adapter"

Only disadvantage is that it needs external power(9v).

For those of you on the hunt, the XA-D210 is still available from Sony Parts CA as a special order for $40... takes about a week to get it in stock. Downside is they won't ship to the US. Find a friend in Canada and cure your woes for under $60 shipped. I wanted one for a long time, but sure as hell wasn't going ot spend $150+ for it.

** USE XAD211 ** at PartStoreCanada.ca

Damn, if I knew about sony.ca I could've save $100 for the one I bought about a year ago.

I'm gonna check tomorrow and see if they can actually special order it and get a back up.

Thanks for the heads up Nasty.

edit:Called up the parts store and it is no longer available.

The XA-D210 was discontinued and special order for XA-D211 was replacement, which is also discontinued.

Owell, thought it might have been to good to be true.

So the search continues for you guys and good luck.
