    Well, I have owned my Samsung Galaxy tab S 8.4 now for about 8 months and I'm not really any closer to figuring this out. I HOPE someone can help me out.

    I've been trying to figure out how to figure out a dock that can both charge and convert the audio to TOSLINK.

    Has anyone here done this of figured it how to charge and get toslink output?

    Thanks
    Scott

    I don't think there is any such thing as a converter for TOSLINK. If the hardware didn't have the optical interface built in I think you're out of luck.

    Thanks for your reply...

    I think perhaps I didn't phrase it correctly or use the proper
    terms used for what I am looking for. I am VERY new to these
    types of smartphones/tablets and such. I'm trying to find
    something like the below link, but for a Samsung.

    Does this make better sense?

    That does make more sense. The problems are, 1) That's for a phone or iPod, not for an iPad. 2) IPhones, iPods or iPads are easier to design for because they are all from the same company, so there is a standard that doesn't exist with Android. 3) you can plug in high quality head-hones or even external speakers to most Android devices and very possibly get the same result.

    In short I don't see that happening either unless Samsung designs something.
