If you’re like me you haven’t completely made the transition to a true HD experience.  By that I mean you’re still not utilizing HDMI and instead have opted for component.  Honestly, I don’t know if I could tell the difference between the two, but Gefen is willing to get you one step – actually more like a half of step – closer with the Gefen HDMI over RGB Extender.  Actually, and probably more importantly, it also lets you extend your HDMI reach by up to 330 feet using just RGB plugs.  The box supports 7.1 digital surround sound audio as well as HDMI v1.3 features, including deep color, lip sync, Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio formats.  No word on a price or launch date, but I’m checking now. It’s available now for $599.
