PS4 + HDMI audio Extractor + Micca Origen + DAC = clicking/clipping sounds.


Apr 20, 2017
Hi, I have a Micca Origen + DAC, which has optical in, and a PS4 slim. I purchased a UGREEN HDMI audio extractor which has an HDMI pass through and an Optical out. When I connect the HDMI audio extractor to my PS4 and optical to my Micca Origen DAC, there are clicking sounds. Note that the Micca Origen DAC only supports PCM format and stereo. Is there anyway I can force the PS4 to output only 2.0 stereo, I believe this is the cause of the clicking sounds because the PS4 is default to 7.1 or 5.1 surround through the HDMI.
