Kartik,

I believe you are asking of converting digital out in RCA outputs. You need DA convertor to convert digital in analog and then you have to use preamp to control the volume. I believe in your case this is not required.

By the way what Becker HU are you using and what equipment you have right now.

Thanks kinetik and sorry as I have not given u the full info about the pxa-h701. It can be controled by a control panel made by alpine it self. It is for those people who do ot have alpine hu like u and me . U can control all the functions of the pxa for that here is the link or the same....


http://www.alpine-usa.com/en/product...model=RUX-C701

and both of these pxa and rux combine give a vvvvvery nice product for ur car. And u can direclty connet any thing even a ipod , and any thing optical also..........
