HDMI Audio Extractor - 1080p
Product ID: HD2A
This HDMI® audio extractor lets you separate stereo audio from your HDMI video signal and connect it to
a 3.5mm audio device, such as your stereo sound system or desktop speakers. You can also extract the
audio from the HDMI signal and integrate it into an optical TOSLINK® application, using the included
digital SPDIF adapter.
Hassle-free integration
Your latest consumer A/V equipment probably only offers an HDMI output. This can make it difficult to
integrate devices, such as your new Blu-ray™ player or computer system, with your existing audio
equipment or desktop speakers.
The HDMI audio extractor is USB powered using the included power cable, for easy integration with your
computer systems. The adapter also features a small footprint that discreetly blends into your hardware
setup, for a uniform look.

Versatile connection options
With a 3.5mm audio output and a TOSLINK adapter included, the HDMI audio extractor lets you output
audio to virtually any non-HDMI equipment, whether it's digital or analog. This makes the audio extractor
great for any application where you need to connect your HDMI source to speakers that don't have an
HDMI input - such as desktop speakers, or a classroom or boardroom sound system.
Maximum compatibility
The audio extractor is HDCP enabled and HDMI 1.3b compliant, to ensure compatibility with your HDMI
device. Plus, the HDMI output supports resolutions up to 1920x1080 (1080p) at 60Hz, to fit any HD
The HDMI audio extractor can also be used with an inexpensive dual-RCA composite adapter (sold
separately) to integrate the audio from your HDMI source into 2-channel RCA audio applications.
The HD2A is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.
