First of all, the question your asking, I don't know.

Anyway,
Doesn't this thing do the same thing? It costs less.

Multichannel audio passthrough for HDMI/MHL is currently not supported on any smartphone at all. Sorry!

Can anyone tell me if an 11 pin adapter the galaxy s3 uses will work with the Xperia z? Seen a few of those on eBay reasonably priced.

Should do. If you watch the clove connectivity video on youtube, they use a Samsung usb host cable and mhl I think...

The XT uses 5 pin MHL cable I'd imagine the XZ will use the 11 pin MHL but I can't seem to find any confirmation on line, I have a 5 pin MHL cable which I was wrongly sent but have a 5-11 pin adapter anyway....so I believe you will be fine

On Clove video, it says we need to use MHL adapter used for Samsung Galexy S2 and Note.

MHL adapter used with S3 and Note2 will not work.

Hence I think xperia Z uses 5 pin MHL instead of 11 pin.

Oh really, that's kinda weird as most 2012/2013 phones are using 11 pin mhl, it's no issue for me as previously said... Just find it weird Sony would use old tech if you know what I mean.

Which mhl charges at the same time as displays the image on the tv?
This was mentioned by Sony.
Or do they all do that
