HDMI in (eARC) > AES Out

Recommended Posts

Is there a receiver out there that can receive HDMI in via eARC and then output to AES. The use case is to drive Genelec SAM speakers.

E-arc capability is very limited atm Sbright unfortunately ; top of the line models like the Marantz 8805 pre pro and the Denon 8500h avr are capable but being hdmi centric its not allowed to be decoded to a drm free hdcp protocol free connection like digital AES . Not to mention they don't have AES digital outs ; the Marantz has balanced analog xlr outs or unbalanced rca's  if compatible ? 

Its very rare to find a pre pro with hdmi permission that outputs digital from - other than hdmi . The likes of Meridian and Steinway Lyngdorf with its digital input amps [P200]..

The Stormaudio ISP with AES output card would be an option, but not cheap.
