Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Like a lot of the other reviewers, my TV (LG) cannot output PCM, so I was not able to hook up my older audio equipment to the TV."
_
"When I first purchased Chromecast I was only able to listen to audio through my tv speaker, very disappointing!"
_
"The two downfalls that it had were an annoying buzzing humming noise that came from my speakers after I hooked it up and I wasn't able to control the audio through the tv with the remote...even though I have my laptop hooked to the tv through HDMI, but I should still be able to control the volume with the remote instead of going to my laptop to turn it up or down."
_
"I recently purchased an LG 39 5300 series TV for the bedroom and while I am pleased with the TV I was very disappointed to discover that there is no way to switch the audio output of the single optical out to PCM."
_
"I was able to connect the audio out on my new Samsung 4K TV to my 80s-era Kenwood sound system."
_
"Very easy installation and the audio from the stereo is incomparable as opposed to the tinny sound that comes from the downward firing tv speakers."
_
"Set your TV audio out to PCM, follow the directions and it works great."
_
"There are two ways to get good sound from your TV when it has only optical digital audio output (no analog RCA output)."
_
"I've had some minor issues but I'm not sure if it's the fault of the TV or the product... audio is sometimes out of sync with the picture."

Sound

Sound:
"I was worried about carrying the digital signal over standard sound wire but it doesn't seem to matter."
_

_
"This is my third product attempt to get my LG LCD HD TV's sound to my analog stereo."
_
"Sound quality is very good."
_

Speaker

Speaker:
"If I power cycle the TV and speakers it resolves the problem at least for a while."
_
"When I first purchased Chromecast I was only able to listen to audio through my tv speaker, very disappointing!"
_
"The two downfalls that it had were an annoying buzzing humming noise that came from my speakers after I hooked it up and I wasn't able to control the audio through the tv with the remote...even though I have my laptop hooked to the tv through HDMI, but I should still be able to control the volume with the remote instead of going to my laptop to turn it up or down."
_
"Sounds great playing theater sound through my amplified PA speakers."
_
"But finally, when I tried having the TV speakers on as well as the external amp + speakers, there was a disconcerting echo effect."
_
"After cutting the cord I no longer had the cable box to route my creative speaker set to my tv."
_
"My biggest concern had been when using different output, that my TV would make me select the digital out put, great news existing TV speakers still primary out put."

Stereo

Stereo:
"One problem is that I can't adjust volume with TV settings -- only with stereo's settings."
_
"This is my third product attempt to get my LG LCD HD TV's sound to my analog stereo."
_
"At the end of the movie tonight, I found my ears were tired, which is a new experience for me - usually I really like and appreciate the sound that comes out of my stereo system (it's a Rega Brio amp with Mission 753 speakers), and the Gefen seemed to do that justice and give it something to get its teeth into, without making my ears tired."
_
"Noticeable for me is about 1 or 2 tenths of a second, which creates an echo effect if you leave the source on as well as the converted stereo."
_
"Very easy installation and the audio from the stereo is incomparable as opposed to the tinny sound that comes from the downward firing tv speakers."
_
"Works perfectly with my 1980's Sanyo Ultrx Stereo Receiver with only RCA L R input and output jacks."
_
"Works perfectly converting Dolby from my TV to analog stereo for my ancient equalizer, amp and headphones."
