Converter Good, DAC Adequate

Lance from Saint Louis, MO on 2/15/2024

Conversion function works well, although the HDMI out feature had problems when connected to an HDMI/ARC input. But I switched to a regular HDMI input and it is working fine. The DAC is fine but nothing special. I compare it to the DAC in my older Denon 3808ci AVR and it was slightly inferior. Nevertheless happy with the purchase as m eventual use will be just for the HDMI to optical conversion to feed a new external DAC I am acquiring.

Pros: Decent value if you need to get HDMI to RCA. DAC is OK but nothing special.

Cons: HDMI out to HDMI /ARC didn't work well

It did not work with my new streaming only TV. It apparently is not compatible with eARC HDMI outlets. It has been returned . Crutchfield apparently does not have a product that would work.

A master class in customer service!

Seems solidly built. Passes HDMI signal unmolested, analog out works. Wanted it to pass HDMI signal to TV and analog to my receiver and it works splendidly for that. Also, Crutchfield customer service is ridiculously good! I initially ordered this item as a scratch and dent. Having just moved, I had to use Paypal for payment and forgot to change my address. I called and explained the situation and customer service tried to put out a pick up/retrieval on the item to get it to my new address. After a couple days the tracking hadn't changed so I called back. They told me to just buy another one and they would refund me the original amount when they received it back. I told them I was good with that but the scratch and dent was no longer available. Not a problem. They placed an order for me for a new one at the amount I originally paid! A few days later I had my item and they received the original back and refunded my money! Above and beyond even though it was my fault! No hesitation needed for me to order from them again! Thank you Crutchfield!
