Add AirPlay to Your Classic Stereo with an Old Apple TV – TidBITS

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/19

[Wayback/Archive.is] Add AirPlay to Your Classic Stereo with an Old Apple TV – TidBITS which has a good description including a list of needed parts:

  • Second- or third-generation Apple TV
  • Power cable
  • TOSLINK Digital-to-Analog (D/A) Converter
  • Pair of RCA Cables

These are only needed the first time to setup the Apple TV 2nd or 3rd generation:

  • HDMI Cable
  • Remote

Note that the Apple TV 4th generation or Apple TV 4K devices won’t work: they lack a TOSLINK interface.

You can work around this by using an HDMI audio extractor [Wayback/Archive.is]. Some can provide S/PDIF / TOSLINK output, others can directly do line out (so you do not need the above TOSLINK D/A converter):

Usually the Apple TV 2nd or 3rd generation solution is way cheaper, as they go for very little money on second hand sites.
