Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I need to listen to TV sound through headphones as well as to continue to allow sound through a soundbar and this splitter will allow that. [ Ronald  Jul 29, 2018 ]
Needed a 1-in, 3 out - most others were 3-in, 1-out [ Jon  Jul 02, 2018 ]
To split my digital optical signal from my tv to two different speaker systems. [ James  Jun 29, 2018 ]
Need a quality optical splitter that has no delay between its concurrent outputs. [ Daniel  Jun 05, 2018 ]
Because my TV had only one Toslink jack and I needed 3 Just another low voltage supply to connect to the plugstrip... [ Michael  May 02, 2018 ]
needed to have the sound bar for my wife and be able to listen to the headphones at the same time [ Donald  Feb 17, 2018 ]
wanted splitter than allows/gives capability to use all outputs simultaneously or at once, not only one as cheaper splitters do. Want for home theater amplifier + separate sound bar to be used at same time with the TV opt. output. [ Heidi  Jan 08, 2018 ]
So I could connect 1 tv to two sets of wireless headphones [ David  Dec 06, 2017 ]
I'm hoping it will work with my TV , sound bar and TV Ears. [ Douglas  Dec 05, 2017 ]
In addition to the Digital Audio out to my Yamaha YSP 1000 sound bar I needed a feed to my wife's Resound TV Streamer 2 that supports Dolby Digital using a digital optical cable. (The TV Streamer 2 wirelessly connects directly to her hearing aides.) I will be able to use the sound bar while she controls exactly what she needs through her Resound hearing aid application on her iPhone. [ Frans  Sep 18, 2017 ]

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 ]
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 ]
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 ]
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. [ Lynn  Apr 06, 2018 ]
