Duplicate your TOSLINK Digital Audio signal to send to different devices!
Avencore's ultra-compact Digital Optical Audio (TOSLINK) Splitter duplicates a single source out to three identical streams for simultaneous connection to multiple sound systems or headphones. One input and up to three outputs can be connected at once, and each is boosted to full strength via USB power.
TOSLINK optical audio is a great way to route audio around your home theatre or personal computer, but often it's a one-to-one affair, forcing you to swap cables around when you want to connect up your wireless headphones or send audio to your surround sound system. With a three-way splitter, you can send optical audio to several TOSLINK-ready devices at once.
Great for sending audio from your TV to the receiver and a pair of headphones at the same time, and also very handy for games consoles to ensure audio is always ready to go for speakers, headphones and recording all at once.
Offers full support for Digital Audio up to and including Dolby 5.1 Surround, 2-channel LPCM, Dolby DTS and Dolby-AC3, and is plug-and-play compatible. Easy to tuck away behind bulkier equipment for always-on operation. All you need is a spare USB socket or USB wall charger socket for power (not included).
Inputs and Outputs include:
- 1 x TOSLINK Optical Input
- 3 x TOSLINK Optical Outputs
In the Box you get:
- 1 x 3-Way Toslink Splitter Unit
- 1 x Mini-USB 5-Pin Power Cable
- 1 x User Guide
This sleek device features:
- 12 Month Cable Chick Replacement Warranty
- Avencore 1x3 Powered TOSLINK Optical Splitter (1-In to 3-Out)
- Support for most signals carried by TOSLINK including Dolby 5.1 Surround

So if i use this device for my tv ill have to plug it from tv out to this device in ,then from this device out il plug it into hifi in and from this device il want to plug it into a DAC optical in and from DAC out into my hifi. does the sound be heard from hifi and headphones simultaneously or only one at a time?
"All three outputs run at once, so sound will be heard simultaneously if all receiving devices are turned on. If you only want one device to have sound at a time, a switch will be required http://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/powered-3-port-toslink-switch-with-remote-3x1-optical-switch.html"

I have my soundbar which is optical. But I want to connect my foxtel and playstation to it. Will this suit my application where it's 2 different inputs and 1 speaker output. Obviously I wouldn't play them at the same time. One would always be off?
"In this case, you have multiple inputs and only a single output, so instead of a splitter, you'll need a switch - search for "Powered 3-Port TOSLINK Switch". It comes with a remote control so you can easily choose which device you're listening to. It allows both the Playstation and Foxtel box to be active, but only one audio stream will reach the soundbar at a time."

I have a Panasonic TV with 1 optical out port that I am using to connect my LG wireless soundbar. The TV has 3 HDMI input ports. My question is, will an optical splitter enable me to connect wireless earphones while still connected to the soundbar? Or is it one or the other at any one time?
"An Optical Splitter such as our Avencore USB Powered 3-way Optical Splitter (product code: AVC-SP503) will allow you to have both your LG SoundBar and your headphones connected at the same time with both devices receiving signal simultaneously.
Alternatively, our Powered 3 Port Toslink Switch w/remote will allow you to switch between whether your SoundBar or your headphones are receiving signal (product code: SW1003)."

Will this introduce any audio delay to the signal?
"No. Because this merely duplicates the signal, there is no perceptible delay in transmission."
Have a question about this product?
