How To Get a Digital Audio Connection from New Apple TV Generation 4 Gen 5

Image
The new Apple TV's generation 4 and 5 both have eliminated the digital audio output connection which in many setups and systems has created issues when not being able to now send a separate audio feed to separately amplify the audio signal.

The fix for getting a new separate digital audio connection is to install an Audio De-Embedder / Audio Extractor which essentially strips the audio signal from the HDMI output of the Apple TV and allows the de-embedder to send the audio to a separate device or amplifier.

An additional HDMI cable is also needed to go from the Apple TV output to the De-Embedder input which is required for proper connection and installation.




Below are two options that are recommended to get the digital audio connection of your choice from the Apple TV to your system or amplifier.
