High Quality HDMI to RCA video/audio converter?

I presently use two players (to cover all discs) and a Bluetooth receiver in my stereo system. An article at Future Audiophile online magazine pointed out that a Sony BDP-S6700 covers all discs, Bluetooth, USB drives & Spotify! I already use an S6700 in my HT system. In addition a display (already have) is required. HDMI to RCA converters are available for <$10. Does anyone know of a converter using high quality audio DACs?

Wouldn't any DAC with an SPDIF input work?

I like NAD but that's way out of my price range!

I need RCA video for the display. HDMI to RCA converters are available for <$10 but at that price the converter's audio DACs will not be high quality.

You're driving the display with composite or component video? Hopefully it's component, in which case, something like this plus the DAC of your choice with SPDIF input (e.g. Topping D10s) will do the job...

It's a snall 6"x4" display that uses composite video. Topping D10s has SPDIF outputs, I need an input. The unit you showed is the right style (small, cheap) but the wrong conversion, I need HDMI to RCA audio/composite!

After a pretty extensive search at Amazon, the converter I need does not appear to exist UNLESS YOU KNOW BETTER, perhaps there is an opportunity there!.

My only solution is a cheap HDMI to composite converter (<$10) and DAC with SPDIF coax input, like a Schitt Modi or Topping E30.
