    If you're looking to expand the input capabilities of an A/V receiver that doesn't support HDMI®, then this 4x1 HDMI Switch from Monoprice may be the perfect solution for you!

    This 4-way HDMI switch features S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio, Digital Coaxial Audio, and analog 3.5mm stereo audio output ports, allowing you to connect to the audio inputs of any AV receiver or amplifier.

    The switch supports the full High Speed HDMI resolution (1080p@60Hz), supports all HDMI 3D modes, Deep Color up to 36-bit total, and high definition multichannel audio, including Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™. One HDMI input is on the front panel of the switch, making it easy to connect the HDMI output from mobile devices, such as your Android phone.

    Fails repeatedly

    • Bradley Artigue,
    •  Atlanta, GA 
    • 8/20/2016 10:12:55 AM

    Pros: When it works, it works great.

    Cons: Short lifespan fails after 3 weeks.

    2nd try, 2nd return. These units seem to last about 3 weeks before failing.

    Hello Bradley,

    Thank you for your review, please keep in mind to keep your devices in a well ventilated area free from dust and debris. This will help the lifespan of the product and keep it from failing. I hope this helps, thank you!

    Useful, but unreliable

    • Anonymous,
    •  Wendake Quebec, QC 
    • 6/22/2016 10:39:30 AM

    Pros: Small size
    No visual or audio quality degradation
    Optical audio out is very useful

    Cons: HDMI Handshake issues

    Does what is says on the description and allows switching between inputs.
    However, when turning the TV off and then back on, I get HDMI handshake issues and no signal.
    To fix it, I have to cycle power to the unit to reset it. This makes the remote useless because I have to physically get to the machine every time. The optical out is really useful though, since my speaker system only accepts one digital audio source.

    Compatibility issues

    • Joseph Benson,
    •  Costa Mesa, CA 
    • 6/17/2016 11:34:53 AM

    Pros: Good build quality, affordable, small and convenient footprint

    Cons: Could not get our Dell PC to connect

    While the switcher looked fine, was reasonably sturdy, and was affordably priced, I could not get our Dell PC (which we use in our conference room for web conferencing) to connect. It was connected with a DisplayPort to HDMI cable, and the PC never saw or connected to the external display. Every other device worked fine through it - an Apple TV, DVD player, and HDMI cable for a laptop.

    We ended up returning it and purchasing the Blackbird 4K 5x1 switcher from Monoprice, and that one has worked fine.

    HDMI switcher for pcm audio

    • Milton Friesen,
    •  Red Deer, AB 
    • 6/14/2016 10:22:52 AM

    Pros: Works great

    Cons: LED lights are annoying

    Bought this so I could hijack the pcm audio signal from hdmi to send it to my dac. No other way to do this due to copyright rules. Now I can play SACD at hi rez through an outboard dac. It's a really good product for the money. Only negative is you have to hide it as the led lights are so wickedly bright it's super annoying.

    works but has issues

    • James ,

    Pros: The box work great. compacts all of those toslink cables into one and saves hdmi inputs on my tv.

    Cons: DTS-HD Master Audio does not work on this box, yes the specs say it does but you will get no sound at all from it using this box.

    The box works for DTS Digital, Dolby Digital, Dolby True HD but the problem started when I put in a blue ray disc that had DTS-HD Master Audio I had no audio, now if I switched it to the Spanish digital audio then it worked fine. So this box does not work with Dts hd ma. I am lucky I dont get rid of anything that has to do with audio and I still had my single digital box and that work with out any problem. The only other problem I have had is that going from cable box to on demand it will stall out and the tv will go black. Now I am not sure that it all the box's fault because the cable box does have its problems. Yes so the box does work but with on flaw DTS-HD Master Audio does not wok. First time I have ever had a problem with a Monoprice product but this one does have some flaws in it. Yes I am running redmere cables so that would not be the problem. All are 6 foot long. thanks.
