The ARCEX is a 90m digital audio extender that extends ARC up to 90m/295ft. to ARC capable audio devices. The units are powered via supplied USB power supplies. Power can be attained from display as the current draw of the TX device is abour 1/3 of a Watt. RX current draw is 0.7W. CEC and all ARC formats are supported from display back to rack/AVR/ARC capable amplifier.

The ARCEX can also operate as an optical to optical extender as well (S/PDIF). There is a switch on the TX portion that will switch the unit to optical mode, this will disable ARC mode. The optical does not output on the HDMI ARC.
