Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen has announced its with Digital Audio Decoder is currently shipping. This new model offers the same functionality as the Auto Volume Stabilizer and adds digital to analogue audio decoding for increased compatibility with stereo systems.
Dolby Volume technology is employed so listeners can enjoy the same audio levels when watching TV or listening to music. Noticeable audio spikes and drops are eliminated, delivering a steady stream of audio for a more consistent listening experience. The automated functionality means no more manual adjustment of volume on the remote control. A bypass button is also included for any circumstance in which automatic stabilizing is not required.
Three audio selections are provided. Inputs and outputs support both digital (TOSlink, S/PDIF) and analog (L/R) audio formats. Users can select from all three connected devices at the same time, for added convenience. Surround sound systems using Dolby 5.1 such as Blu-rays, DVDs and games are all supported. Audio can be mixed down from 5.1 to left/right analog audio using Dolby AC3 decoding. Audio formats can also be passed through in the same digital and/or analog format.
Installation requires a simple connection of the GefenTV Auto Volume Stabilizer with Digital Audio Decoder in between three audio sources and the A/V receiver. An included IR remote makes source selection easy though a front-panel button can be used for source selection.
