Parasound's Zhd HDMI switcher

Kevin C. Tofel

HDMI is all the rage right now and will be for some time thanks to HDCP and AACS, so we're expecting to see more of these switchboxes. Parasound is the latest to jump on the bandwagon by adding the Zhd HDMI Switcher to their Zcustom line earlier this week. The Zhd will set you back $600 (MSRP), but how else will you connect up to five HDMI sources to a single HDTV set? We don't own five HDMI-enabled devices just yet, but we're working on it. In the meantime, you can rack mount the svelte half-width Zhd in your A/V closet for future use. HDCP compliant and HDMI 1.3 certified, the Zhd includes an RS-232 port and IR remote, making it handy for home control products too.
