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.

PROS: Small footprint. Lots of audio output options. Allows you to use an old audio amplifier that has no HDMI inputs.
CONS: None, other than it's a bit expensive, but not too bad.
PROS: Easy to use, multiple options for audio out, no loss in signal or picture quality.
PROS: Works just the way it's supposed to with my old Roku 3.
CONS: Wish the RCAs had pigtails on them vs the headphone to RCA converter.
PROS: Does everything it says it does.
CONS: It would be useful if there were a version that converted dolby digital and dts to 2 channel analog.
PROS: * Easy setup, just worked
CONS: * Only pulls off stereo audio onto stereo output
PROS: Works with Chromecast
CONS: No power switch
PROS: Item performed as promised. It's the LED showing it's on is nice to have.
CONS: A slight nit, but if you do not have the downstream (output) device turned on, then the device itself will be reported to the upstream (input) device. This behavior probably as expected but it would be nice if the instructions included this information. It took some head scratching to realize that the device listed in the Windows sound control panel as "EP-HDMI-RX-1" and in my NVidia control panel as "Date Export E_-HDMI-RX" was this device when the downsteam (receiver) was not turned on.
The one change I made to the arrangement was instead of using the power supply (supplied) for the Monorprice part, I connected a USB-to-power adapter from the Samsung TV. When we used the power supply that came with the Monoprice part, after turning off the TV, the sound from the TiVo Mini would continue to play out of the Sonos Playbar, because the Playbar continued to receive audio information. By connecting the USB-to-power cable from the Samsung TV to the Monoprice, the power would be cut whenever the TV turned off, and this perfectly sorted out the issue. FYI, this Samsung TV had (2) USB inputs, both of which supplied power whenever the TV was turned on – one with 0.5 amps, another with 1.0 amps, and we used the higher amperage output.
