Audio Authority 1394A 1:4 HDMI ver. 1.3 Distribution Amp/Splitter

The Audio Authority 1394A 1x4 HDMI ver. 1.3 Distribution Amp/Splitter brings a level of performance and compatibility that lesser distribution amplifiers simply cannot match. 

Unlike some of its lesser competitors, the 1394A has been ATC certified as HDMI compliant, and meets all requirements for HDCP certification.  Sporting a high-performance chipset from Silicon Image, virtually the inventor of HDMI, it is no wonder that the 1394A performs so well. 

Like most Audio Authority products, the 1394A comes with a one year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
