Sometimes, complicated optical audio applications require customization and flexibility, especially in terms of how inputs are converted to outputs and in what combinations. If you’re in the market for a 4 in 2 out optical switch with remote control, you’re going to love some of the options available for online purchase.
Check out the Panlong Digital Optical Audio Switch Splitter 4 In 2 Out Toslink Matrix Switcher Selector 4×2 with Remote Control, which is also available in a two-port coaxial switch, a three-port optical splitter and a three-port optical switch. This switch and splitter combination has four inputs for optical sources and two outputs for receiving terminals, including but not limited to amps, AVR, soundbars and headphones. Any input can go to both outputs at the same time, or different inputs can be sent to separate outputs as well. It can transmit over long distance, supporting output at up to 40 meters, and it can be controlled through the included remote control or with easy button-press operation. The unit has a metal enclosure of the highest quality necessary for heat dissipation and longevity. Ace Deal also provides a full-year warranty on this device.
Another 4 in 2 out optical switch with remote control, also doubling as a splitter, is the Digital Optical Audio Switch Splitter 4 In 2 Out Matrix Switcher Selector 4×2 with Remote Control by GooDee. It features four-way optical fiber signal input that splits or switches to two sets of SPDIF signal receivers. Audio formats supported are DTS-HD, Dolby-trueHD, LPCM2.0, DTS, Dolby-AC3 and DSD. Similar to its Panlong counterpart, its output distance is up to 40 meters, and it can be controlled either via remote or using on-device buttons.
These units are not only multifunctional and able to provide you with maximum flexibility in optical audio application, but they’re also affordable. Clearly, you won’t regret the minimal investment “input” for the “output” of customization and convenience that you receive.
