We are currently testing new audio decoders for xLobby that can downmix digital audio to 2 channel stereo or 5.1 discrete analog audio from SPDIF or Toslink inputs. xLobby and all media management systems are unable to decode digital 5.1, DTS and analog audio at the same time. The new series of decoders provide a low cost solution that provides installers the ability to separately decode analog audio when needed.

1. Transfer the DTS/AC-3 digital signal data into 5.1 sound track output.
2. Transfer the stereo(R/L) audio signal data into 5.1 sound track out put.
3. Two SPDIF input, one coaxial input, one sterero input,Perfect solution for your HDTV player, xbox 360 , ps3, ps2, dm500s,dm800HD etc.
4. One button to switch mode, simple to operate.
