Sys.Concept, of Edmonton, Canada, sells a similar product for $15 US

The only device I could find which was explicitly a splitter-combiner

I would expect, though, if this idea is feasible, that one of the
store-bought splitters above should do the trick.
"toslink splitter/combiner" OR "toslink splitter-combiner" OR "Toslink
