Extract 5.1-Channel Dolby Surround Sound from HDMI and SPDIF Digital Audio -- w / Powered Amplification
The GefenTV Home Theater Audio Processor is a powerful yet very compact solution for all your audio/video needs.
The GefenTV Home Theater Audio Processor provides pass-through connection for a Hi-Def source to two mirrored HDTV displays using HDMI 1.3 features supporting 1080p full HD, Deep Color, Lip-Sync, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD MA, and 3DTV pass-through. The audio from both the HDMI and coax inputs is sent to the coax and optical outputs as compressed AC-3 digital audio and to separate six-channel audio on the RCA and binding post connectors. Up to 5.1 channels of LPCM, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pro Logic II is decoded on the output.
Speakers can be connected to the binding posts using the built-in amplifier, delivering 25 watts per channel RMS. The audio can also be sent to an external power amplifier using the RCA connectors. The front-left and front-right channels use bi-amplification to enhance the sound quality.
The Home Theater Audio Processor features an easy-to-read LCD display with extensive features such as individual control of speaker size, distance location, and volume up/down. Control is available using the front panel push buttons or using the included IR remote and RS-232 control.
