Product Description

Digital Optical Coaxial SPDIF Audio Extender Over CAT5/CAT6 Cable Kit
This digital optical/coaxial audio extender kit allows users to transmit digital audio sound for long distance up to 500 feet or 150 meters using a low-cost Cat5 or Cat6 twisted pair Ethernet cable. 

This digital audio extender supports transmitting digital PCM stereo and multi-channel digital audio such as LPCM 5.1, LPCM 7.1, DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus.

These units can switch between coaxial and optical digital signals and can be powered by either USB wall charger or DC power adapter allowing users flexibility of choice between power sources.

Cost-effective solution for extending digital S/PDIF audio signal for longer range with neat setup for all professional installers.

This digital audio extender kit fits with various A/V applications such as:

  • Public audio/audio broadcasting such as airports, train stations, retail stores
  • Information kiosks or administrative consoles for control rooms and multimedia centers
  • Tradeshows, hospitals, auditorium and command rooms
  • Classrooms, training center and conference room
  • Live stage events

Easy Setup
The installation is very easy. No configuration needed at all. The local transmitter should be connected to digital audio source such as CD/DVD player, computer, HD cable box, Blue-ray player, etc. 

The receiver module should be placed at the remote location for connection with A/V receiver, stereo amplifier, speakers and so on. 

Finally the transmitter and receiver can then be linked using standard Cat5e or Cat6 cable. Only the transmitter or receiver unit needs to be powered for minimizing the load on your HD or computer audio sources.

Dual Digital Audio Transmission
This digital audio extender kit supports 1 optical audio input and 1 coax S/PDIF input. 

Coaxial input will be sent to the coaxial signal output. Optical audio input will be sent through the optical signal output on the remote end.

Both type of digital audio can be transmitted at the same time.

Low-Cost Cable Solution Maximum Flexibility
CAT-5 and CAT-6 twisted pair cables are widely popular and easier to be hidden away in hallways, buildings and behind walls for ultimate flexibility. 

Easy to customize the cable length as needed. No need to have digital audio cables prefabricated.

Long Range Audio Transmission
This digital audio extender can transmit digital S/PDIF audio signal for over 500ft (150m) cable run while maintaining superior audio integrity with the same clear and sharp sonic quality outputs all the way as the original input. 

Support all digital PCM and multi-channel S/PDIF surround audio formats such as PCM 2-CH LPCM 5.1 or 7.1, DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus. 

No audio signal loss, no noise and no degrading quality after the long cable run
