Default Dac with HDMI input???

Hello

I have read that HDMi "carry" a very high quality digital audiosignal out from example a dvd player

1. My brain ask me:
Is it possible to take an ordinary DVD player->HDMI output->Dac with HDMI input-> Interfacecircuit??-> PCM1794-> analog output??

Here i am talking two channel mode example CD /DVD /DVD-A

Anyone have a opinion / experience about that?
(a ordinay dac with HDMI input)

Thanks
Kim

no no , this is not the way it works. It goes like this:

1- HDMI source ( for example, PC with a fresh AMD videocard )
2- HDMI receiver (hacked commercial tabletop unit or the HDMi chip itself)
3- multichannel, dac compatible I2s output

the carreid digital audio signal is of very high quality 8x 24/192

Yes but is then possible to separate the 8*24/192 signal so you only got the digital stereo signal and marry it to a pcm1794 chip?

yes that is fairly easy. The really intresting thing would be to transmit 6 chnnels filtered digital audio and set up a PC basefd digital crossover.

I too want an easy way to take pairs of sound channels to pairs of digital input speakers.
I also need a method of attenuating all the channels.

I already have dozens of digital outs using a Lynx AES-16. I want to use PGA2311 remote controlled for setting volume on monoblock style amps like hypex or GC , decisions decisions... Once I made progress withthe PGA's I 'll let you know , btw anyone saw such scheme , balanced PGA23xx with something like one of smaller PIC with internal oscillator?
