How It Works
 
It's matched impedance and complete freedom from hum, buzz and other side effects caused by ground loops. Note that the fewer number of transformer turns on the left side of T1 and T2 insures impedance matching. The straight lines between the coils show 100% ground isolation. You are protected from BOTH Hum & Impedance problems.

Change the way you use your PC forever. Now you can make it part of your stereo system for the ultimate in musical experiences. It's a jukebox. It's an automated Player. It's a source of thousands of tracks of music you love.
But, just connect a cable from your PC to your stereo? Well, I don't think so. The output of most sound cards is 8-32 ohms. The Line Inputs of your stereo are 47,000 ohms. Not a good match.
And, what about hum, buzz & distortion? 60-cycle hum can be a major problem when you try to connect your computer's sound card output to your stereo system.
"This is my second one for another PC sound card to main mixer. What an amazingly effective, yet simple product you have here. Can't thank you enough!"

It can cause what's called a ground loop. And it's caused by the different EMI potential between two or more relative grounds.
Anyway, two or more grounds is what you've got. You have a massive 300-watt or so power supply in your PC that's meant to power hard drives, USB hubs, video cards and more.
It has its own solid ground or you'd likely blow memory chips and lose data. Not a good thing to connect directly to your stereo system.
"No more buzz, no more frustration from trying and returning EVERY other product out there!!! Don't waste your time and money on anything else.".
N.S. North Port, FL
Then, you plug in a dial up modem, DSL line or Cable modem to your computer. Each of these external sources has its own independent (external to your home) and competing ground.
Got a network, multiply the ground loop problems by the number of connected computers. So, it's no wonder that so many people give up trying to connect their PCs to their stereo systems.
But with the thousands of on-line streaming music broadcasts, with your ITunes and other MP3 collections, it's an incredible waste not to be able to listen to all the great music through the audiophile speakers and powerful amplifiers of your main Home Stereo System or Home Theater.
Unparalleled
Instant Music Collection
It's nothing less than astounding. You can find, tune in and listen to thousands, not just 100s, of your favorite artists singing and playing your favorite tracks.
These aren't just samples. They aren't only partial tracks. Now you can Tune In On It All. And best of all it takes just a few minutes and costs nothing (to just a few dollars a month) for you to listen to all the best songs, concertos, symphonies and more.
Do you love Barbershop Quartets, Broadway Musicals or Show tunes? How about Beethoven,
"Hey Dak/'Drew,
After about 6 months of products and hunting, I stumbled across your PC to Stereo connector via a link.
This thing finally fixed my hum - very cool and explained to me along the way why I had the hum in the 1st place (no one else had been able to do that OR fix the problem). Thanks much for having a solution for this problem."
D.G. Northbrook, IL
Scarlotti, or Mozart? Maybe Elvis, The Platters, or the Everly Brothers are your thing. Or, maybe it's Bluegrass, Folk or Country Swing. Now it's all yours.
Oh here's a good example of what I've found. For months I'd been looking for an LP or CD of Tartini's 'Devil's Trill.'
I used to have a tape of it but I'd lost it about 15 years ago. Well, I found it here with my first click under Tartini. It was awesome. I love it.
Oh, Simon & Garfunkel are in Los Angeles. In just one place I've got 247 of their tracks set for continuous uninterrupted play. Is this great, or what?
So, what great musical work, lost artist or favorite tunes would you like to find and listen to? From music from the dawn of time to today's hottest hits, it's all here for us to enjoy. Wow, what fun.

You Don't Need To Read How It Works.
But You'll Find It Interesting If You Do.
All You Do Is Plug It In.
You'll Get Perfect Sound And No HUM.
OK
So What's A Ground Loop
And Why Do You Care?
Stereo systems and computers each use multiple power cables that ultimately lead back to your circuit breaker panel.
As you know, at your panel, 220 volts AC is split into two 110-volt legs with one common ground. Unfortunately, in many homes, there can be differences in potential from ground to ground at your outlets.
And it's this difference that causes what's called a ground loop, which can cause hum, buzz, signal distortion and system abnormalities.
Plus, (and this is often the worst), when you connect a dial up phone line, a DSL line or a cable modem to your computer (all of which have grounds external to your home that you can't control) and then connect your computer to your stereo system, a ground loop can develop.
"Folks, all y'all (Texan pleural, y'all is singular!) are incredible. My daughter's wedding was this past Saturday. She gave me all her music to be played on a Memory Stick and my job was to fill the dance hall.

The DAK CS-1 was FLAWLESS! I used my laptop to manage her songs, and the CS-1, Impedance Matching Ground Loop Isolating Interface, was the perfect "widget" to get the sound out of my computer and into my Peavey Amp and speakers I use with my band.

There was no hum, no problems, and absolutely killer sound. If anyone has any doubts about this product, how it works, ease of installation, get rid of them!

I was thunderstruck with the performance of this product, absolutely magnificent.".
R. W. Katy, TX

A ground loop exists when the two or more grounds have a slight potential difference between them.
This will produce a voltage drop where they meet, which also can cause electrical anomalies such as hum or buzz, signal breakup and erratic system performance.

How Do You Break the Loop?
The one sure way to eliminate any possibility of this occurring is to break the loop. By breaking the ground loop, the voltage difference developed across the line will be eliminated, thereby preventing the possibility of any type of damaging electrical side effects.
You can break the loop by eliminating external grounds. 1) Unplug all cable and phone line connections. This eliminates the external grounds over which you have no control.
And 2)
Trace the AC power to all components (anything with a separate power cord) and run a truly equal common ground that they all share.
Note: One ground isn't necessarily better than another. It just that each can have a different potential. And that's what causes the problem.
Or, and here comes the sales pitch, you can use a Precision True Isolation Transformer for each channel. Each must be a low distortion, linear, extended bandwidth transformer.
And they must be completely isolated from each other so that there's no possible grounding connection between your PC and your Stereo.
The new DAK PC to Stereo Protected Perfection Interface And Cable meets or exceeds these specifications and for $29.90 will give you a safe, protected instant audiophile connection of your PC to your Stereo so you can instantly tune in all the great music you'll find streaming on the Internet and play your iTunes and other MP3 files with the automation of your computer, but the sound quality of your stereo system.

This Is More Than You Need To Know
But Check It out. It's Interesting.
All You Need To Do Is Plug It In.



This is a Schematic of the DAK's Interface so that you'll understand exactly what it does and how it works. Of course all you have to do is plug it in. It does the rest for you automatically.
"I received you product and I'm very happy with it, NO MORE BUZZ from my Stereo.

I bought a MP3 Connector from ***** ********** for ($27) that works the same way but caused the ground loop problem to begin with.

While I was researching the cause on the Internet, I came across your product.

What a deal! Similar products like yours go from $60 to $100+."

Arrow 1. This is the Plug that you plug into your sound card. The end (tip) is the left channel hot, the center band (ring) is the right channel hot. The Sleeve is the common ground from your sound card. And this will be broken at the transformers.

Arrow 2. Now we're getting to the important parts. 2, 3 and 4 are actually all parts of the precision low noise matched transformers. First, 2 is the 4-32 ohm input side. Do you see how it has fewer coils/turns? That's so that when we get to 3 on the other side with more turns you'll see that the impedance is stepped up.

Arrow 3. This is the HZ side at 47,000 ohms. A transformer works much like an electrical generator. A current passes through the coils and it's transferred onto the other side. Nothing touches and therefore the ground loop doesn't pass between sides of the transformer. You could have a transformer like this that didn't correct the impedance and it would work just fine for stopping the ground loop. But we're fixing both problems here. Also, there are different qualities and noise levels and this is a superb low noise example, but you can't see that, you'll just hear it. Anyway it all has to do with the precision of the wind and the materials used.

Arrow 4. This is the center of the transformer. Note that to make the picture easier to understand I moved down to the left channel, but both right and left channels are identical and the are also both totally isolated from each other. No ground potential passes.

Arrows 5/6. These are the RCA Jacks that plug into the Left and Right Channels of your stereo system or home theater system. There's nothing special about them. They're just standard RCA plugs. Oh, and they also plug into the 10' special extension cable that we've included with the interface so that you have 16 feet of cable to run between your computer and your stereo system. You can also add 2 more 10 foot cables without suffering signal loss. You can get those after you click the buy button on the review page and look just below my shopping cart. Just add one or two if you need them.



You Don't Need To Do This.
I Just Wanted You To See

Here's my VOM (Volt Ohm Meter). What I'm testing here is to see if there is any connection between the ground on the 3.5mm jack which connects to your sound card and the RCA jack which you connect to your stereo.

Arrow 1.) As you can see the meter reads Infinite resistance. There is absolutely no electrical connection at all. So, you are protected.

Arrow 2.) This is the Ground on the RCA plug.

Arrow 3.) This is the ground on the 3.5mm plug.

Like I said, you certainly don't need to do this test. But if you have a VOM, feel free to check to see that there is no common ground between the 3.5mm Plug that plugs into your computer and the 2 RCA Plugs that plug into your stereo. The precision isolation transformers protect you and your sound.


So Here It Is -
All You Need To Do Is Plug It In.


OK, this drawing is really straight forward. It just shows how the PC to Stereo Protected Perfection Interface hooks up.
Arrow 1. Plug the Interface into the sound card exactly as your speakers were plugged in before.

Arrow 2. Plug the RCA Jacks into your stereo system or home theater system.

Arrow 3.
Here's the back of your receiver. Just plug it in.

Arrow 4.
Know that absolutely no ground potential passes through the interface. Only matched impedance signal is passed.

All You Need To Do Is Plug It In.
That's it. It's easy. But oh, It sure does work great.



OK, So How Does It Work?
And, What Do I Have To Do To
Get the Buzz & Hum Out?
Installation? Really None. Just plug it in. Plug in the 3.5mm stereo plug into your sound card where you have your speakers plugged in now.

Then plug the other end of the PC To Stereo Protected Perfection Interface which has a 6' cable attached with dual RCA jacks into any Line Input in your stereo system or Theater Surround system.
Or, use the Included For Free 10' extension cable if needed. (Extra cables are also available if your stereo is more than 16 feet from your stereo. A total cable length up to 36 feet is preferred.)
The all new Impedance Matching, Ground Loop Breaking PC To Stereo Protected Perfection Interface And Cable literally turns your PC into an awesome unlimited jukebox for your stereo system. Here's what it does for you.
First It Solves The Impedance Problem. Here's the problem. Your sound card is made for you to plug-in either headphones or amplified speakers. Its output is made to handle 4-32 ohm loads.
The inputs to your stereo system are HZ or high level. And they're designed to handle 47,000 ohm loads.
Actually you probably already know about headphones and speakers from buying speakers for your stereo systems over the years. Most speakers are 4-8 ohms and headphones are now often 32 ohms.
So, we've built this special interface that uses two separate Japanese precision wound transformers to convert the 4-32 ohm speaker outputs from your sound card to the 47,000 ohm input impedance of the Line or AUX inputs in your stereo system.
It's Just $29.90 - $6.95 P&H
Qty.
The result? It's a perfect impedance match with no problems, no distortion, no noise, 0 THD and over 100db Signal To Noise Ratio. It's great sound with no problems from now on.
Second, It Obliterates The Buzz, Hum & Distortion. It's called a ground loop. After you install the interface, there will be absolutely no common ground between the ground on the PC and the ground on the Stereo. They are totally, 100% isolated.
In fact, there will be no common ground even between the Left and Right Channels either. You can measure it with an ohm meter (see picture) and the result is infinite resistance, or absolutely no connection.
Important Note: The interface doesn't just suppress the sound of the hum and buzz, which could cause some loss. The Interface actually prevents the hum from ever appearing.
It's like not even exposing yourself to a disease as opposed to taking antibiotics to cure it once you've been exposed or gotten it.
There's no potential between grounds at all. The hum simply isn't there. Period. This is the perfect solution to let you turn your PC into the world's most powerful musical jukebox ever devised.
