It allows you to connect your console to an compatible home audio system. I have my PS2 hooked up to my Onkyo a/v receiver and it sounds great! But yes it is strictly for audio and provides the best possible audio for your PS2.

so that you can hook the ps2/3 to a home theater system or high definition tv and get superior audio quality. your tv or home theater (surround sound) system must have an optical jack first in order for it to work.
