Audio when Converting HDMI to VGA...?

Hi guys, I would like some advice. I have a Roku 3 that I am trying to use with a VGA projector. Since the only output on the Roku is HDMI, I purchased an unpowered adapter that works fine, but the audio output is very quiet on my speakers.

I'm wondering if this is because of the adapter, or just that the Roku doesn't crank out much power. Should I use some sort of amp with my adapter? Or should I use a different type of adapter altogether?

Thanks!

You need an amp.

Audio in the HDMI data stream converts to a "line level" of approximately one half to one volt and a few milliamperes. This is correct for feeding the line input (not the microphone input) of an amp and will not produce much output if connected directly to a speaker.

My speakers are powered and have an amp built in, so would a small headphone amp such as this be acceptable?
