Evolve II-4K HDMI Multi-Channel DAC

$ 299.00

The new Essence Evolve II-4K is an HDMI Multi-Channel Audio DAC de-embedder designed to extract the native, uncompressed LPCM multi-channel 24/192K audio signal from an HDMI v2.0a hi-res-logosource like the new 4K Blu-ray players. It allows you to extract the original HDMI hi res audio signal and convert it to digital optical (bandwidth restricted) or analog multi-channel audio.

Both the HDMI input and output support UHD video resolutions up to 4Kx2K@60Hz (YUV444), and is capable of decoding the native uncompressed native high resolution audio at 24/192K to analog for an amplifier or active speakers.

It supports decoding of high resolution digital audio formats including LPCM 7.1CH, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD Master Audio, and supports audio sampling rates up to 192KHz at 24 bits, allowing fully synchronized video and audio.

If you’re planning to adopt the new 4K UHD sources like the next generation 4K Blu-ray player or 4K streaming device with HDMI v2.0a output, they will not work with your existing downstream components unless they’re also specified for HDMI v2.0a and HDCP 2.2. The solution to the problem is to use the Essence Evolve II-4K multi-channel audio extractor with HDMI v2.0a output to your display and analog output up to 7.1 channels to your existing power amp or active speakers.
