This Full HD 4 input, 1 output HDMI switcher is equipped with a Digital Audio output so you can connect the audio of your TV directly to your Home Cinema receiver (codec formats as Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio are supported). The receiver automatically separates the audio from the incoming HDMI signal so you don't need to install separate audio cables from your A/V devices to the Connect 421. With one audio cable you connect the audio of four HD sources to your Home Cinema receiver, which automatically switches along with the image. Besides the ease of use and the aesthetic aspect, this is also very important if you do not have enough audio inputs on your receiver. This switcher is ready for the future because of the support of HDMI v1.4 functionalities such as all 3D formats, CEC, HEC and ARC*. The Connect 421 has a suggested retail price of 129.95 Euros.
This Full HD 4 input, 2 output HDMI switcher has a matrix function. This means that the four inputs can be selected on each output independently. This makes switching your HDMI cables unnecessary if you want to watch a movie or play games on another screen. Connect it once, and then forget about it! The Connect 540 has a suggested retail price of 109.95 Euros.
