The receiver has an analogue audio output for connecting an external amplifier or powered speakers to amplify the audio that has been de-embedded from the HDMI signal. The transmitter has an HDMI loop output for attaching a local display. It features two IR transmitters, two IR receivers, and two Euro block connections for the RS-232 and enables bidirectional IR and pass-through.
