Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

Q
I am looking for a piece to come out of my LG C1 (optical output) to a Sonos PlayBar (optical input) to senhieser RS195 (optical input). Client hard of hearing and wife hates soundbar so loud. Can someone pleaseeee help me out as this guy is driving me insane trying to find a solution. Apparently pressing one button to turn on Bluetooth headphones and one button to switch tv to Bluetooth is too difficult for him (elderly client). Would this work in this scenario?

Hello, from my experience with this I think that could work, I am just not very familiar with a senhieser, so I dont want to guid you wrong. One thing about Crutchfield is they have GREAT phone support and the return policy makes it easy to try this without much risk! Good luck and I hope your customer gets what they are looking for :)
[ CARLOS  Jan 07, 2022 ]
A
That is what I use for the same headphones. The setup allows me to use both the sound bar and the headphones at the same time. The headphones don't come on until you remove them from the base. You can just mute your sound bar if you want. It works perfectly.

I'm far from being a computer geek, but I got it to work thru my hearing aids for me and the speakers for my wife, and we lived happily ever after.
[ WILLIAM R.  Jan 06, 2022 ]
A
It worked on our tv
[ Kathy  Jan 06, 2022 ]
Q
Can this convert cable to my projector so I can watch TV` on a 100' screen?
[ Eddie  Nov 29, 2021 ]

A
I was unable to get it to convert cable. Streaming services worked, but not cable. It may have been a function of my equipment's age. But that is my experience.
[ William  Nov 30, 2021 ]
A
This splitter does not accept coax cable . It is for digital optical cable input and output only.
[ Philip  Nov 30, 2021 ]

[ Irwin  Oct 31, 2020 ]
A
I have my stereo/via TV Optical and Wireless headphones. Do not know about hearing aide,but if it has an Optical connection it should work

Yes,
[ Mark  Apr 21, 2020 ]
A
yes,a good purchase. connects the soundbar and earphone a good advice and instructions from you ,how to connect it
[ Bernhard  Apr 20, 2020 ]
A
Yes it does, I use it with a special type of headphones i bought from crutchfield because i am hard of hearing and sometimes i need the tv louder and the other people in the room don't. So they can listen through the tv the regular way and I can listen through my headset. Very happy with this product.
[ B  Apr 20, 2020 ]
A
Yes. That's the point of using this unit.
[ Coppy  Apr 20, 2020 ]
A
Yes it does and is plugged in so it's on all time which didn't work for me so I went with a non electric switcher.
[ Michael  Apr 20, 2020 ]
A
I have my stereo, my TV and wireless bluetooth Sanheiser headphones all utilizing this The headphone base unit has optical, as do the other 2.
[ BARRY  Apr 20, 2020 ]
Q
Is this device "directional?" I understand one input to three output devices. How about multiple input devices to one set of speakers?
[ Tim in VT  Apr 06, 2018 ]

A
Tim in VT. I have my audio-optical cable from my TV to the input and I have 2 output lines. One line goes to an audio-optical to analog converter to my analog stereo, the other goes to my bluetooth converter for my TV for my fancy-dancy hearing aids. I don't think I have really answered your question but this is how I use my splitter.
[ Mark  Apr 06, 2018 ]
A
I went from audio digital output on tv to audio digital input on soundbar and receiver. Every thing works great . This is a good product for this setup.
[ Abraham  Apr 06, 2018 ]
A
Yes, it's directional, if your asking if it splits a digital signal. But, if you need an analog output it will not work. Also, there are other devices that go 3 inputs to 1 output. This is the opposite of that.
[ John  Apr 06, 2018 ]
A
Sorry. I don't know as I haven't tried connecting it in this manner. I can say, however, I noticed no discernible dropoff in signal quality and the device works well when used as intended.
