Boost and manage your TOSLINK connections with ease!
Avencore's ultra-compact Digital Optical Audio (TOSLINK) Switch allows you to select from between up to three separate optical SPDIF inputs and send them (one at a time) to a single receiving device. Remote control and manual select are both available for choosing which input device should be passed through.
This Powered TOSLINK Switch is one of the most convenient ways to expand a single SPDIF input, offering three input sockets it can cycle between. Perfect for times when your Amplifier or Speaker System only has a single input, but you have multiple source devices to connect. This 3x1 Optical Switch can accept up to three inputs from source devices as varied as Blu-Ray Players, Televisions, Personal Computers and Game Consoles, and then one at a time through to your sound system or speakers/headphones.
Best of all, this USB-powered switch will boost your optical signal, allowing for longer cable runs to be used. Just press the push-button on the switch to cycle through the connected inputs, or use the included remote control for drect access. Compact, versatile and great for audio management in any home theatre!

Is the remote control IR? i.e. can it be controlled with a Harmony Remote?
"We don't have a harmony remote to test with, but it should be quite easy to teach the Harmony (or any learning universal remote) all of the functions."

Is this unit compatible with a Logitech Harmony universal remote? I would need the brand name and model number to configure it with a universal remote.
Also does the unit connect to a power source - USB connector?
"The remote could be taught to the Harmony remote using its learning feature. A ready-made profile is not available. This unit includes a USB Type-A to Mini-B cable for power. It does not include an adapter from 240v mains."

Hi. Does the remote control for this device have three buttons to select each of the three optical inputs (i.e. direct input), or a single button to cycle through the inputs sequentially?
"The remote control has individual buttons for directly selecting the inputs."

What is the power input required to run the Unit in both Volts and mAmps?
"This unit draws up to 5V/1A"
Posted: 9th August, 2016
Would this unit be able to draw power via the USB port which I think is input on the side of an LG OLED TV, if not how would I power it if does not have a power it?
"Yes. We haven't met a USB socket on a TV yet which won't run these USB-powered switches and converters, so it should plug and play immediately. Alternatively, any USB power socket adapter can do the trick - our smallest one is PWR9110"

I have one optical output that currently goes to my soundbar. I wanted to add wireless headphones (that use optical). I would like to be able to select between the soundbar and headphones for receiving audio but not both at the same time?
"That's right. This switch would be more suited to a situation where you had three devices you needed to feed into a single sound bar (one at a time). For duplicating one signal to work on a soundbar and headphones, a splitter is the way to go. Search: AVC-SP503"
