The KanexPro HDMI Switcher (4 x 1) is used to switch HDMI signals with multi-channel audio from 4 different sources for display on a single monitor. Being HDCP compliant, the switcher prevents copying of digital audio and video content. Offering data transfer rates up to 2.25 Gbps per channel, the switcher supports full HDTV resolutions up to 1080p @ 60Hz and color depth of 12 bits per channel. Additionally, it supports high speed HDMI specifications such as Deep Color, HD lossless audio formats, and Lip Sync.

Using a built-in repeater chip, the HDMI switcher performs signal equalization, which conditions the signal for error-free transmissions up to 50’ (15 m). It supports uncompressed audio such as LPCM and compressed audio such as DTS Digital, Dolby Digital (including DTS-HD and Dolby True HD). In addition, the switcher enables you to extract audio from the HDMI interface for transmission embedding to Toslink, digital coax, or stereo audio channels.

        Needed an HDMI switch since I'm not willing to give up my Bose Lifestyle system (older one with no HDMI connects). A couple of reviews indicated that this switch had problems using the optical output if switching between HDMI inputs - I experienced the same problem. I ended up using the RCA digital output since it didn't suffer the same problem and I couldn't tell the difference in sound quality (makes sense since Dolby is compressed/encoded - some audio head will probably correct me :-) Anyway, the switch saved me from buying a new system while giving me 5.1 surround. One other item, the front LEDs that indicate which input is active are REALLY bright! I had to cover them with tape to keep them from distracting me while viewing my TV.

        Nice compact device with remote. Works well for directly connected components but doesn't work with wireless video streaming such as DVDO Air due to lack of EDID support (didn't know about the need for this prior to purchase). Also remote range is pretty bad, needs almost direct line of sight to switch inputs.

          Comments about KanexPro HDMI Switcher (4 x 1):

          Well built and rugged. Audio extraction built into the switch. Great feature. I love this switch but it seems to take 5-10 seconds for switching. It could be our specific setup messing with it. It has power, don't buy a hdmi switch without power. The remote for this switch is great! Much better than the $ switch I bought, big mistake...Instead of a monitor as output we are using a Elgato Game capture device. This have something to do with the switching.

          Easy set up and operation and no degradation of the signal and picture. BUT, the best part of the experience was the sales associate who ask me a number of questions about the problem that I was trying to solve, and only then made several product suggestions and explained how to install the device.Thanks

              I had bought this to replace a similar product that was dropping the signal at longer output distances (20 ft). The KanexPro works great with perfect picture. My only complaint is the LEDs are blinding but nothing a little black electrical tape won't fix. Love it!

                I have been using this every day for over a month now and it works perfectly at full resolution and never a hick up. I switch channels sources often and the unit is quick and responsive. The audio is decodes perfectly and I never have to adjust my audio receiver at all. This unit is a steal at its price.

                    I got this to split the audio off of HDMI signals and route them to an older home theater amp. Video and audio quality are excellent. My only complaint is the 3-5 second lag that occurs when switching between HDMI inputs.

                        I set up a projector in my garage and needed to add speakers so I got this switch and it worked great. Now I can pump in direct tv or my lap top and share the same speaker system. The only problem is if I switch inputs while it is in use I have to turn it off and on to get speakers working again.

                                  I purchased this switch because of its ability to break out the digital audio stream from the switched HDMI input. With this, I have essentially built my own 2.0 home theatre receiver: (1) I send the digital audio signal (LPCM) to a FIIO D3 DAC via optical Toslink and (2) the RCA output of the DAC goes directly to my DTA-100a amplifier. I'm quite happy with the result.
