Thank you very much!
My audio system is a Logitech Z906 which has 2 optical inputs so I should be ok with it. I am already using one port for my xbox.
When you say that "It can also pass 5.1 audio in AC3 or DTS to SPDIF" does it mean that the movie or music I am playing must be encoded only in these formats? Anyway I am buying it!
This has been a very helpful discussion!
Edit: Slight financial problem! It seems that on amazon.de the product is 38 odd euro and shipping is 63!?!?!?!?!
Found it on another site:

But I am still unsure about the two models (the one above and this https://www.deluxecable.de/audio-video- ... a-6518995/
). It seems that the second one has an express switch between 2.1 and 5.1 configurations, while the first one is only 2.1
