About the Simplified MFG DAC1

Connect an HDMI source to your non-HDMI-equipped gear

This handy little problem-solver from Simplified MFG lets you connect an HDMI source like a 4K Blu-ray player to receivers, amplifiers, and other devices that don't have HDMI inputs. The DAC1 has an HDMI input for your source, plus an HDMI passthrough output for sending the signal onto your TV. Stereo RCA analog and optical digital audio output jacks let you send signals to your receiver, amp, or home audio system. If your connected source outputs Dolby® or DTS®, this adapter can downmix those multi-channel signals to stereo and pass them along to your audio system.

does this work with netflicks from a roku 4k device?

Yes. That is how I use mine. I think an additional question to ask is where you are sending the 'extracted' audio? That is what this device is really about.
[ KENT  Jun 30, 2021 ]
This will work with Roku devices for any of the streaming services they support!
