4 Best 4K 60Hz HDMI 2.0 Switch with Audio Output of 2018-2019

If you need more HDMI 2.0 ports and extract audio from source devices to your audio receiver simultaneously, the best solution is HDMI 2.0 switch with audio output,  which can simply be considered as the combination of HDMI 2.0 audio extractor  and HDMI 2.0 switcher.

It is usually equipped with Optical (SPDIF/Toslink), Digital Coaxial  and Analog AUX / RCA audio ouput, you can set the audio EDID settings on switch to control audio out method. Normally there are 3 audio EDID settings: PASS mode, 5.1CH mode  and 2CH stereo mode as below:

  1. 2CH Mode for Analog Stereo: Set 2CH PCM as output audio format on source devices and choose 2CH EDID, you will get 2CH analog stereo from RCA L/R, Optical and HDMI output port.
  2. 5.1CH Mode for Digital Surround:Set 5.1CH Dolby Digital/DTS as output audio format on source devices and choose 5.1CH EDID, you will get 5.1CH digital surround from SPDIF optical and HDMI output port. Note: 3.5mm AUX or RCA L/R port will not have sound.
  3. PASS Mode for 7.1CH:For 5.1/7.1CH PCM, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and above, set EDID to PASS and connect HDMI output to your receiver directly. Note: RCA L/R and Optical / Digital coaxial port will not have sound.

HDMI 2.0 support up to 4K 60Hz HDR HDCP 2.2 and bandwidth up to 18Gbps, and backward compatible with HDMI 1.4 and 1.3. So it can work with most HDMI devices such as PS 3/4 Pro, Xbox One, Apple TV, Blu-ray player, cable/satellite receiver, laptop, computer, etc. You don’t need to worry about compatibility issues for a long time, that is why we recommended HDMI 2.0 switch directly instead of older HDMI 1.4/1.3 devices.

Besides, right HDMI cord is also necessary for larger bandwidth, 4K 60Hz content require Premium Quality HDMI 2.0 certified cables. And the HDMI cable length is generally recommended to be 16ft and below.
