Easily decode the audio stream from an HDMI source.
Decode both digital and analog audio from HDMI and S/PDIF in Surround Sound format
The Gefen TV Digital Audio Decoder for HDMI decodes and processes multichannel surround sound audio for use with any amplified audio sound system. Audio is extracted from an HDMI source while the video portion of the signal is split into two identical HDMI outputs. When the audio is output via HDMI, it will down mix Dolby Digital 5.1 and multichannel PCM to 2 channel PCM audio. A conveniently placed optical and coaxial output are available to output Dolby Digital 5.1. All of this is available in a compact and attractive package that can be placed in almost any location.
Stereo and multichannel surround sound formats, with up to six discrete channels of audio, are supported. Additional outputs for the front left and right channel bi-amplification are available to satisfy even the most discerning listeners. Advanced audio processing and setup features ensure an optimal surround sound experience that is ready to be connected to your favorite amplifier.
