Has anyone tried to use the HDMI out with a cheap HDMI audio splitter? Like this one:

My usage case would be a kitchen radio, raspbberry pi zero with snapcast and a cheap 2.1 logitech speaker system.

Hi
I have one myself and it works without any problem the only thing is that it can get messy with all cables and sometimes a tick/plupp sound when music starts

It's a DAC+AMP+bluetooth receiver. too good to be true for 18€.
I ordered it yesterday, let's see if it's any good
