Hello;

I have an HDMI audio/video feed carrying 5.1 audio. I am looking for a way to convert or mix that 5.1 into stereo so I can listen to it on the stuff I already have. Right now when I feed it into my TV I only get to hear to two channels.

What kind of hardware will I need? I am hoping to keep this as cheap and as space-constrained as possible. If some sort of converter box would be more expensive than a new small TV that can work with more all of the channels of audio 5.1 has then a new TV would work. I am just not sure what I should be looking to buy right now.

Read the most helpful customer reviews to see the limitations. The one I had defaulted to 2 channel mode which was best for me as I wanted to downmix to 2 channels, but I sent it back thinking I might be able to get one that had a 2 channel mode that would pass up to 192kHz. I have not found one yet. I did find one that had programmable EDID, but with no coax output and that was far more expensive, so I decided to buy another Kanex Pro which is on the way.

This http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=102&cp_id=10240&cs_id=1024014&p_id=11556&seq=1&format=2 is also on the way. I have not tried these cables, so no comment on the sound. I was using a 3 foot BJC Series-FE when had it before.

I used it to downmix HDMI multi-channel from my Blu-ray player to 2 channel and used the coax out which gave me 24/48 versus 16/48 over the Oppo BDP-103 coax out. It worked well and sounded nice, and is easy to open up to remove the LED's. I did not try the analog out.

Here http://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digita...d_sim_e_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0PSR7V57YZ52T4QQZGB4 is one without the coax output and with RCA's versus 3.5mm.
