WHO THOUGHT A TINY BOX COULD BRING SO MUCH LIFE TO MY SOUND SYSTEM. I AM AN OLD POWER ROCKER BUT I LIKE MY DVD'SIN STEREO. THIS LITTLE BOX LETS ME DO IT. REWATCHED TOM HANKS THE PACIFIC AND PATTON. WITH MY SOUND SYSTEM AND THIS POTENT LITTLE BOX YOU WERE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BATTLE FIELD. I DID NOT SPEND MUCH ON THIS. IT WAS MONEY WELL SPENT!!!!

Pros: AWESOME

Cons: NONE

Good for use with wireless headphones

Crutchfield customer from Houston, TX on 5/24/2021

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this to connect my wireless headphones to my AT&T TV box. The Wireless headphones only work with a stereo output, so I have to switch this box to the 2 channel setting. The HDMI audio output from this box is also stereo in the 2 channel setting, so I have to use the digital optical output from the AT&T TV box direct to my home theater processor to get surround sound when no using the headphones. Of course you could just flip the switch on Metra box to the TV setting when not using the headphones.

Pros: Allows use of stereo headphones with the TV box set to surround sound.

Cons: HDMI output from device is stereo when using it for headphone listening. Device is expensive.

I purchased this box so that I could listen to SACDs using my Sony UBPX700 Blu-Ray player. And it works like a charm! It's the only reasonably priced gadget that I could find that would allow me to stream and convert the DSD layer. It sounds excellent to my ears.
