Hi, I apologize if this has been asked before, but after searching I could not come to any good explanation.
I have a pair of KEF LS-50s I bought used, and am in the market for an integrated amp, e.g., peachtree, creek, etc... I want to be able to have my audio sources plugged into this amp, but also a roku and ps4 which connect through HDMI. I don't want a whole receiver deal as the audio output from them is generally fairly bad in comparison to a decent integrated amp, so what is the best way to go about this?
Should I get a cheap receiver and plug the two HDMI cables into it, and then just output the audio if the receiver has an audio pass-through (so it doesn't have to go through its terrible circuitry)? Is there just a splitter box I can get that will pass the video signal to my TV while stripping the audio signal which I can pass to my integrated amp?
Or is there simply no way to watch TV with the audio flowing through my integrated 2 ch amp.
