    HDMI® Audio Converter

    Get the most out of your home theater system with this HDMI® Audio Converter from Monoprice!

    The Monoprice HD Audio Converter taps into the incoming HDMI signal to produce Digital Optical, Digital Coaxial, and Analog 3.5mm TRS stereo audio outputs. The original, unaltered HDMI audio/video signal is sent to your display as normal, while the audio outputs can be connected to your home theater audio system for a superior audio experience.

    The converter supports all HDMI 3D video modes and high-definition, multichannel audio, including Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™. A switch on the back of the converter allows you to switch between two different audio modes. Mode A allows the capabilities of the display to be sent to the source device. In most cases, this limits the audio output to 2-channel PCM. Mode B allows the source device to output any available audio mode. This allows you to select advanced multichannel audio streams for playback on your home theater audio system.

    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends using 22AWG, 24AWG, or active HDMI cables with Redmere technology to achieve the best results and to ensure minimum signal loss over longer distances.

    I USED THIS ITEM TO EXTRACT THE SOUND FROM MY INPUT GOING INTO MY PROJECTOR. MY PROJECTOR CAME WITH SOME INTERNAL SPEAKERS THAT WERE NOT LOUD ENOUGH FOR MY NEEDS. THERE WAS NO WAY NO CONNECT EXTERNAL SPEAKERS WITHOUT USING A BIG COMPLICATED ROUND ABOUT WAY UNTIL I FOUND THIS BOX. I CAN NOW HOOK UP MY FIRESTICK TO THE INPUT AND OUTPUT TO PROJECTOR. SOUND IS CONNECTED TO MY EXTERNAL SPEAKERS, WORKS GREAT.

    Only PCM works as analog

    Pros: If you only need it for PCM, it works.

    Cons: Doesn't work for encoded audio.

    Analog audio only came out if the source audio was PCM. If the source was dobly digital, there was no analog audio. I contacted customer support and they did not reply.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your review and I do apologize for the issues you have experienced with PID 10251. The 10251 is defaulted to Mode A. Which will select the capabilities of the sink/display rather than the source device you have connected. Which typically will be 2 channel PCM for most sink/displays only support 2 channel PCM.

    So when the source device is set to dolby digital it might be thinking that the converter is not supporting the audio if it is set to Mode A. If you still have the unit I would recommend trying Mode B for it would tell the source device that all audio modes are supported. I hope this helps!

    Regards,

    Works perfectly

    Most AVR Receivers cannot play a digital input (eg HDMI) to both Zone 1 and Zone 2 simultaneously. In my case I want to have an AppleTV (4th Gen) play music in both zones simultaneously. This allows the AppleTV to plug into the AVR with HDMI for Zone 1, and also have an analog audio input into the AVR to be played to Zone 2.

    Pros: Simple, compact, works well.

    Cons: None

    I was surprised how small/compact it is. It works exactly as advertised. I was able to send an hdmi link through it and have it redirect the audio to my DAC via digital coaxial.

    Pros: Easy setup. Works well.

    Cons: Have to increase the volume on my audio receiver above normal levels.

    Easy setup. Worked as expected. Only issue is that I have to Increase the volume on my receiver. When changing to another component on my audio receiver, the volume level is very loud.
