Default HDMI DAC for analog 7.1 output

Is there a (quality) device that can convert HDMI audio to RCA analog outputs in 7.1 format like a pre/pro?

Looking to just convert the audio without the overhead of having a pre/pro.

Not sure that is what I'm looking for...

Something like this:

HDMI Digital Multi Channel to Analog Surround Sound Audio Decoder | eBay

Just purely takes HDMI in and outputs analog 7.1 output to run to dedicated amps.

I think this is more like it. I've used it before on a 7.1 mini surround sound system using a CS3318 to control the output volume and it worked really well.

I saw that on ebay too.... looked "cheap" for lack of a better word. So this worked well with you with no issues? No lag/handshake issues?

Never noticed any lag while watching movies. All I had to do was connect the HDMI cable switch it to 7.1 and it was ready to go.

Have you ever peaked under the hood? Are the decoder IC's it uses legit? I'm afraid of buying cheap chinese garbage.

I don't have the unit anymore, I lend it to a friend. But I did look under the hood. I don't recall seeing any cheap parts, or anything that looked like a counterfeit part.

Does anyone know whether a decoded 7.1 channel LPCM audio stream is always included on the HDMI output of an Blu Ray player, or an surround processor unit?
