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.

Specifications: • HDMI video support: Up to 1080p + 3D • Power Requirements: 5 VDC, 1A • Weight: 0.3 lbs. • Dimensions: 3.33" H x 2.43" W x 0.83" D.

Note: The RCA analog output will not work if the incoming audio is multi-channel audio (>2CH). The SPDIF does not support Dolby Digital Plus and PCM 5.1CH and beyond.

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

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.
