Product Details

Parts Express HDMI Audio Extractor with Toslink and L&R Audio

Adding equipment to your home theater system is difficult when devices don't share the same technology. It is often necessary to find a work-around such as connecting an HDMI to the television and running a Toslink cable back to the AV receiver. This can be a difficult and costly exercise, and you might not get the audio signal that you want.

An HDMI Audio Extractor allows you to tap into the HDMI signal and pull out the audio you need for your sound system. A built-in EDID emulator tells your source device to generate a 2-channel or 5.1-channel audio signal. Installation is easy; after connecting the extractor with HDMI cables, run a Toslink cable to the amplifier digital input, or stereo audio cable to the analog input and you can enjoy your favorite movies and programs through your existing audio equipment.

Parts Express HDMI Audio Extractor with Toslink and L&R Audio
Parts Express HDMI Audio Extractor with Toslink and L&R Audio is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works, and works well!I really should just buy all my electronics from Parts Express... I had purchased a similar item on Amazon for the same price and it just didn't work. Wouldn't even pass the HDMI signal. I bought this one from PE and plugged it up and no issues whatsoever - HDMI video popped right up and sound was coming out of the speakers...I actually used this to solve a buzzing problem. I had wired up a computer monitor over a long run of HDMI cable, using a source switcher as a repeater (PE part # 180-638), and connected a Lepai 2020 to the headphone jack of the monitor to get some sound. Lots of buzzing. Not really a surprise, though, as it was a nightmare scenario for buzzing: long cables connected across multiple branch circuits and the branch the amp was plugged into had a bunch of dimmer switches on it. This solved the issue though by letting me tap into the digital audio feed from the HDMI and feed that via a small DAC to the Lepai 2020 - no more buzzing!! Yay for digital.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works wellThis device enabled the Roku3 work with my Denon receiver via optical cable. Made audio selections on both this device and Roku menu. The sound quality is much improved compared to direct feed via blue ray disc player. PS gave catalog to my brother- in- law who was excited to find this vendor. By

Parts Express HDMI Audio Extractor with Toslink and L&R Audio

Will the HDMI Audio Extractor strip audio coming from a T.V to a Receiver on the Audio Return Channel (A.R.C.), I am attempting to grab this audio to send to a Zone 2.  

Asked by: Jimc01

I have a new Samsung smart tv UN65HU8550. I have an older Technics stereo receiver with several speakers that only receives through RCA/Analog. What type of cable do I run from the TV to your HDMI to RCA Extractor? The tv says it has an Audio Out port.

Does "allowing the full signal to pass through" mean video AND audio, in the event you want to watch the news or other program without the stereo system on?  Thanks. 

Asked by: Doclaw
Yes. The HDMI will pass both audio and video through the HDMI out and extract the audio only through the RCA connections.
