Product Highlights
  • Extracts Audio Signal from HDMI Input
  • Outputs Audio Signal to Sound System
  • Outputs by TOSLINK / Coax / or Stereo
  • Selection between 5.1 and 2 Ch Audio
  • Simultaneously Outputs HDMI Video Signal
  • Supports Resolutions up to 1080p/60
  • 6.75 Gbps Bandwidth

The KanexPro Audio De-Embedder with HDMI Video Output extracts the audio signal from an HDMI input and outputs it through a TOSLINK, Coax, or stereo output so the signal can independently be routed to a sound system. At the same time, all three signals of the HDMI input -- video, audio, and data -- get output through an HDMI output. The HDMI input supports resolutions up to 1080p/60 and computer resolutions up to 1920 x 1200.

The TOSLINK and Coax outputs are both SPDIF digital outputs that support 5.1 channels of surround sound audio, as long as the input has 5.1 channels. The stereo output is a two-channel output. A selection button lets you choose whether to output by the SPDIF outs or the stereo out. If you choose SPDIF, and you have output cables connected to both SPDIF outs, the De-Embedder will automatically output over TOSLINK. So if you'll want to output by Coax, just make sure that only the Coax output has a cable in it.

        Comments about KanexPro Audio De-Embedder with HDMI Video Output:

        Pros: This audio de-embedder will indeed allow you to use an old stereo using analog outs, S/PDIF, and TOSLink. Output is bit-perfect, and the LED indicators showing status are handy, but there are significant caveats.Cons: The unit has a "soft switch" to change modes rather than a sliding switch as competetor units have. It does not remember the last state when it is powered down. On power up, it defaults to 2 channel operation. This is contrary to the mfr's suggestion that says it powers up in 5.1 mode. Also in 5.1 mode, HDCP is NOT supported.Other Thoughts: I don't know why mfrs of these devices fail to publish the actual modes these units support, making it impossible to compare units. IME, they are not the same, I am now on the third one, each has been different. The EDID for this device shows:2 channel mode: 16/20/24 bit at 32/44.1/48kHz sample rate, max 2 channels, HDCP supported5 channel mode: 16/20/24 bit at 32/44.1/48/88.2/96/176.4/192Khz, max 6 channels(!), plus DTS and Dolby Digital, but HDCP is NOT supported.

            Worked very well for hooking up my new blu-ray player & HDTV to my analog stereo receiver from the 1990's. A bit of audio signal loss, but my receiver has more than enough power to compensate. If you've got some old stereo gear in your entertainment center with more modern gear, this item will do the trick.

            Comments about KanexPro Audio De-Embedder with HDMI Video Output:

            I use a Roku 3, Samsung TV (LCD), and Vizio (newest, 01/2014) sound bar system. My TV does not pass thru 5.1 audio to the optical and coaxial digital audio connectors. This De-embedder was a solution to extract/direct audio straight to the sound bar, skipping the TV. Though not the cheapest version out there.I like the solid metal case, and that it's small. I also like that it has both the Optical and Coaxial digital-out options. The LED light is bright!For sound bar users that have roku 3 (or other web streamers) or very basic DVD players that don't have separate digital audio out connections, this is the set up.IMPORTANT NOTE: This device DOES NOT DECODE ANY AUDIO, it just passes it through. So, if your sound bar (like my Vizio) can't process Dolbly Digital Plus (DD+, which Netflix and Vudu use), you are still out of luck and will have to choose 2 channel audio (within the netflix interface), use a DVD player that does decode the DD+, or buy an full-on audio receiver. I haven't found a way to force vudu to do 2 channel audio from within their Roku interface.Bought this at full price (about $, Jauary 2014)

                      We got a great deal on a new 60" HDTV but it had NO audio outputs making it impossible to hook up the surround sound. I have a cable box with optical output so watching cable with surround was not a problem but I needed a way to run the Blu Ray audio through the sound system. The KanexPro is the perfect solution.
