I am looking for a Dirac processor that takes a HDMI input, and outputs with fiber optic for each channel or analog for each channel. You may ask why...for active speakers, and eliminating a DtoA conversion. :)

Why ask why, drink Bud Dry.
I'm going to disagree with Wayne because I can...and say maybe.:wink2:
Dirac HDMI in>out processor feeding a HDMI in>analog 8ch out
Should work....?

Oh sure, now we shift the goalpost :smile:
Don't know of any HDMI>mch optical out.
But then again I don't know of any evidence to support audible degradation after 2 conversions. 20, maybe, but not 2...which I demo with regularly.

Hehe... One reason for optical is no degradation with length. With active speakers they could be up to 50' lengths for the rear surrounds...if I put the rack in the center of the front wall, and my room is as big as I hope to have.:laugh2::laugh2:
