Many home theater enthusiasts who’ve dropped a lot of cash on new lossless audio receivers and processors were perturbed to discover that their new babies, with rare exception, would not be able to achieve passthrough for both lossless and 3D. Panasonic, and a few high end companies have since released players with dual HDMI outs, but that doesn’t solve the problem for the customer who doesn’t have one of those decks. Monoprice has introduced a new splitter that solves your problems. Coming in at around $50, the box is about as plug-and-play as it gets. Insert your player out into the in, and run two more HDMI cables out to the television and the receiver and you’re good to go. I’m honestly suprised that we haven’t seen more of these boxes out there, as this is essentially just a repeater circuit. Either way, customer reviews say it works well, so if you’re contemplating that 3D upgrade, but not a premium player line, give it a whirl.
