The Magnavox TB100MG9 Digital Converter Box suffers from poor audio quality

Picture Quality: The Magnavox TB100MG9 Digital Converter Box has a very high picture quality, among the better boxes we’ve tested overall.

Audio Quality: Unfortunately, the Magnavox TB100MG9 Digital Converter Box has some of the worst audio quality we’ve heard in any digital TV converter box. There’s a hissing sound overlaying all audio, which can get highly annoying.

Product Features: The Magnavox TB100MG9 Digital Converter Box comes with a program guide, individual tuning and auto scan, and adjustable closed captioning, and analog pass-through.

Recommendation: The picture quality and features on this box are great, but there is one big strike against it. The audio quality, quite frankly stinks. A digital box should have digital quality audio, at the worst, around what you’d get out of a CD player. The static on the Magnavox TB100MG9 sound quality is as hissy and annoying as a poorly tuned analog broadcast. As we’ve said before, there are other, better boxes out there for your money; we love the Tivax STB-T8.

Overall Rating: 5/10
